Not sausages again ?

Sometimes I shop out of habit. Having staples in the freezer is a necessity really as I work school hours. Sometimes these staples need using up and the light bulb moment just doesn’t come. After going through every one of my normal backups, I just couldn’t settle on an idea.

Google was the place to go and I got cornmeal in my head. I found a recipe on another blog  and played around with that until I had something to fit our 3 sausages and 3 people. It would easily serve 4 as I have a portion for lunch tomorrow.


Grease a loose 20cm bottom flan/ pie tin

Heat oven to 180 (I used fan bake on the new oven)


1 tablespoon olive oil

2 onions thinly sliced

3 sausages, skin removed and cut into 2cm long bit

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1/2 tbsp brown sugar


2 eggs

1/2 cup milk (will need less is eggs are large)

50 grms cheese (mixed tasty cheddar and Parmesan )

120 grms cornmeal

salt and pepper to taste


Heat olive oil, add onions and give them 3 or 4 mins

Add sausage balls and stir

Carry on cooking until lightly browned

Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar and brown sugar

Stir until coated and leave to brown nicely


Mix eggs and milk in a bowl

Add the rest of the ingredients

Stir, you should have a thick batter that will keep a bit of shape

Tip into greased tin and make an indent and push sides up to a bit of a crust

Put filling on middle

Bake for 25-30 mins until golden

Us grown ups loved it, Miss Muffin found it rather cheesy. We concluded it was a good one for our grown up radar and would be great with a few jalapenos added. The crust was lovely and different. It would be great for using up bits of left overs such a roast veg.

Hope you enjoy.
