Cornbread Sausage Casserole

I can’t believe how fast summer is flying by! Right now we are preparing for the new school year. This year I have a child in second grade, one in first grade and a preschooler…I think we are going to have a fun and exciting year! My seven year old just started piano lessons this week and has amazed us with how quickly he catches on. I also have lots of fun projects and some new subjects that we will be introducing this school year.

Today I spent time organizing our home school drawers and getting our materials together. Since I have been very busy all day, I wanted something easy to make, but filling and tasty too. So, I whipped up this sausage and cornbread casserole and it was a big hit!

You will need:

1 lb sausage roll

1 onion

1 green pepper

3 garlic cloves, minced

6 oz. can large black olives, pitted, drained and chopped in half

2 cups salsa

2 boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix (8.5 oz)

2 eggs (for the corn muffins)

2/3 cup milk (for the corn muffins)

8 oz. bag shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese

Chop the onion and green pepper.

Fry the sausage, onions, peppers and garlic on the stove top

When the sausage is fully cooked add in the olives and salsa

Pour mixture into a casserole dish and top with 1/2 of the cheese

Mix the corn muffin mix according to the package. Spread corn muffin mixture on top of sausage mixture

Sprinkle evenly with the rest of the cheese

Bake for 25 -30  minutes (or until toothpick comes out of corn muffin batter clean) in preheated oven (400 degrees).

Mmmm…comfort food at its best! 🙂

      • An award-free blog is one where the author chooses not to accept awards for a variety of reasons. It is a
        fairly common decision to become award-free in the blog world. I am always very tickled when someone takes the time to nominate me for an award, but some of the reasons I’ve chosen not to participate include that the rules for participating can become very time consuming (especially when you begin to get a lot of awards). I can also never decide who to send them on to, since there are so many wonderful bloggers out there. I suppose I should make or find an award-free button to put in my side bar. I truly appreciate the thought and time that went into nominating me and I hope that you will accept my apologies for not participating. You are a very sweet and creative person…I really enjoy reading your blog! 🙂

      • Not a problem. I just wondered if it was related to those blogs who earn income from trying out different products or something. Thanks for taking the time to update me.
