  1. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat, stirring frequently until thoroughly cooked and no longer pink. Remove from heat, stir in frozen corn; set aside to cool.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine beaten eggs, 6 tablespoons of the melted butter, water, black pepper, red pepper, jalapeno pepper, green onion and optional cilantro; stir well. Stir in sausage-corn mixture; add cornmeal mix and stir well.
  3. Spray or lightly oil a large skillet or griddle with vegetable oil. Add 2-3 teaspoons of remaining butter and heat skillet to medium. Griddle is ready when small drops of water sizzle and disappear almost immediately. For each corn cake, spoon 1 rounded tablespoon of batter onto skillet. Cakes may be flattened slightly or left about 3/4 to 1 inch thick. Cook 2-1/2 to 3 minutes on first side; turn and cook 2 minutes more, or until golden brown on both sides. Use remaining butter as needed to grease skillet.
  4. Serve warm; garnish each cake with 1 teaspoon sour cream and chili sauce or salsa if desired.

These are really good, but I think I would use more jalpeno next time to make them spicer!

They were okay. They have potential...maybe add some more sour cream and veggies to the batter. I'd try it again though.

This was very dry and grainy like other reviews stated. Pretty bland too, however, I did NOT use "Hot" sausage and left out the Jals, so that might have contributed to the blandness. I DO like...

I was reminded why I don't eat corn bread. I'm just not big on the 'graininess' of it. It was kind of bland, but I left out all of the veggies, so I should've added salt and/or onion salt and ...

A little tasteless for us.

These were ok. Dry, not all that tasty, but decent. Both hubby and I said 3 stars.
