This is a classic recipe in my family. I remember eating it as a child and I still really enjoy it. And this time around I even found a Jimmy Dean sausage with minimal processing and no MSG to use in it!
1 1/4 lbs. sausage meat (I used less than 1 lb.); cook thoroughly, then add onion below
1 large onion, chopped; cook till tender before adding following ingredients
1 can creamed corn (I used 1 1/2 c. frozen corn)
3 c. diced tomatoes (I used 1 1/2 cans)
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 can whole olives
2 1/2 c. milk
1 2/3 c. cornmeal
Add Mix #2 to Mix #1.
Then separate 2 large eggs in another bowl and beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into the combined mixes.
Grease 9 X 13" pan and pour mixture in before cornmeal settles. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes, then turn down to 300 for 30 minutes.
My mom's note: With leftovers, either eat cold or warm in fry pan in a little butter.
