cornbread and sausage

On Sundays, my family likes to sleep in… as least as much as possible with a newborn in the house!  We try plan most of our chores for Saturdays, so we can relax and enjoy our Sundays.  

By the time we get around on Sunday mornings, I love to pour a hot cup of coffee and bake or cook brunch.  And as much as I love pancakes and breakfast burritos, I love creating fun recipes for brunch!  The inspiration for this dish came because I have been craving cornbread stuffing, so I decided to put a little spin on it and create a cornbread and sausage mini quiche! 

These little guys turned out so delicious. They’re bite-sized, moist, salty and a bit sweet, which makes them a favorite, even in a diverse crowd.  You can dip them in ketchup or salsa, or drizzle warm maple syrup on top.  They are also great on the go, if you’re running late for work! 

Cornbread & Sausage Mini Quiche

To make the cornbread: 

  • 1 cup flour 
  • 1 cup P.A.N. cornmeal
  • 2 tbsp sugar 
  • 2 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1 egg

For the quiche: 

  • 1 lb sausage 
  • 6 eggs 
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 cup milk 
  • Salt and pepper to taste

To make the cornbread: 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a pie pan or small baking dish with olive oil.  

Combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.  Add in milk, olive oil and egg, and mix until smooth. Pour into pie pan or baking dish and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean. 

To make the quiche: 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Lightly grease mini muffin pan with olive oil.

Cook sausage in a pan until no longer pink.  Crumble cornbread in a large bowl and add cooked sausage, eggs, cheese, milk, salt and pepper.  Mix until well combined.  Spoon mixture into greased muffin pans and fill to the top.  Bake in preheated oven for 15 – 20 minutes.

These are a new family favorite!  

I have been discovering new quick and easy recipes using P.A.N. Cornmeal lately (check out my last recipe on scrumptious cornmeal cakes!).  Everything I’ve made using P.A.N. cornmeal has turned out amazing.  

P.A.N. Cornmeal has been a family favorite for years, and is the number one cornmeal in South America, but has recently made its way into the homes in the U.S. (lucky for us!).  Be sure to check out their Tumblr page for more recipes!
