Sausage and Onion Cornbread

D. Rattray
Sausage onion cornbread recipe with chopped onion, butter, and sausage.


  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk, or use light sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 8 ounces bulk sausage


Preheat oven to 350°.

In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and soda. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

In another bowl, whisk together the egg and buttermilk until well blended. Add to the cornmeal mixture and stir just until dry ingredients are thoroughly moistened. Heat a 10-inch cast iron or heavy oven safe skillet over high heat; crumble sausage into it. Brown sausage for about 2 minutes to render some of the fat. Add the onion to the skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, until sausage is browned and onion is tender. Remove from heat. Spread sausage and onion out to evenly cover bottom of skillet. Spoon cornmeal batter evenly over the sausage and onion mixture and carefully spread out. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown and firm. Using a knife, carefully loosen around the edge of skillet then immediately invert onto a serving plate. Cut into wedges. Serve hot.
Serves 8.
