This Black Eyed Pea Cornbread Cheesy Sausage is not just a cornbread. It is a hearty cornbread meal loaded with black-eyed peas, corn, and cheese.

I took my buttermilk  recipe and loaded it up with black-eyed peas, sausage, cream corn, onions, and cheese.  It is truly a meal and not just a side dish.  Because of the cheese, corn, and black-eyed peas, it is incredibly moist and more like a cheesy corn pudding or corn casserole than cornbread.  I love cornbread which explains why I try lots of different types of cornbread using my homemade buttermilk cornbread recipe for the base.

Life at my house has been extremely busy this week.  Many of you know my son, Casey, plays high school baseball.  He has two to four games a week.   Casey also has been attending play practice for his school.   My husband and my other kids have been very busy too.  I truly needed an easy skillet meal.  My crock-pot and my cast iron skillet are my favorite ways to cook on hectic days.  I love mixing everything together and baking it in my cast iron skillet.  One pot meals make life a little easier.

If you like black eye peas and cornbread, I hope you will try them together in this Black Eyed Pea Cornbread with Sausage Cheesy.

  1. This is so great! Having it next to some cabbage tonight. Really really good – nice and moist. I have a tex-mex cornbread recipe that I thought was my favorite. This might replace it.

    • Tammy,

      Thank you for stopping by Recipes for our Daily Bread and leaving me a comment. You made my day by letting me know you tried the Black Eyed Pea Cornbread. I love all cornbread including this black-eyed pea cornbread. I could seriously eat the entire skillet full. If you are eating black eyed peas and cabbage you must be from the south. They sounds like good southern staples. I would love to know what state you are from.

      Many many blessings,
      Diane

      • I’m from Southeast Texas Dianne which means our food has a really great mix. We’ve got our BBQ and Tex-Mex staples but we are so close to the Louisiana line, that we also have our southern foods and a nice healthy dose of Cajun thrown in too. I really have enjoyed your recipe and I’m running by the store today to pick up some sausage so I can make for dinner tonight after my son’s football game. It’s going to be SO GOOD!

  2. I”ve never added anything to cornbread before and this will be a nice change. Plus, it’s a whole meal in one…gotta love that. Would love for you to come and link up some of your favorite recipes at the first The Yuck Stops Here! Link Party.

  3. I have never had anything like this, or used black eyed peas. I am printing, and pinning to try asap! Your site is so amazing and love to visit. Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

    • Carrie,

      Thank you for your kind words. We eat a lot of cornbread and black eyed peas in the south. I ate to many growing up, but I love them. I like this recipe because it is a one dish easy meal. YES!
      I hope you are having a good week. We are enjoying spring break in Florida. My kids who are in (public school, private school, homeschool, and medical school) got the same spring break. It is truly amazing!
      Thanks for stopping by,

  4. Hi Diane, This sounds like something my family would love. It looks so good too.
    Keep those great recipes coming!

  5. Definitely want to try this! I love quick and easy, and also that it uses up that buttermilk I always buy for baking but never use up. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  6. Definitely looks like a great twist on cornbread and an easy, but delicious meal to serve. Thanks for sharing and am hoping you have been able to relax a bit this weekend. I know from our conversations, it was a bit of crazy week. So, definitely hoping you have had some downtime this weekend 🙂
