Total Time35 mins
- 1 pound ground pork sausage
- 1/2 cup onion diced
- 1/2 cup red bell pepper diced
- 1 cup pepper jack cheese shredded
- 1/4 cup Parmesan grated
- 1 large egg lightly beaten
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease an 8 by 8-inch baking dish.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the sausage while breaking into small pieces. Add the onion and bell pepper to the sausage and cook until the vegetables are soft and the sausage is no longer pink. Remove to a paper towel-lined bowl or plate and let drain and cool slightly.
In a medium-size bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, dried sage, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Add the milk and mayonnaise stir to combine.
In a separate bowl mix the cooled sausage mixture with the pepper jack cheese, and parmesan cheese. Toss to combine. Add the egg and stir to combine.
Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan and spread to cover the bottom. Spread the sausage mixture evenly over the first layer of batter. Carefully spread the remaining batter over the sausage mixture. It's not necessary to make the batter completely cover the sausage. It will spread some while baking.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until firm and golden brown.
