Jalapeno Cheddar Cheese Corn Bread...breakfast ideas?

Having a sleepover dinner party with long time friends this weekend and I'm in charge of breakfast the night after..we'll all be quivering like chihuahua's from too much wine so I thought a spicy jalapeno cheddar cheese corn bread with some eggs and chicken sausages would work well with a bloody mary.
Thinking of getting those skinny chicken sausages from Trader Joe's..
Never made the corn bread with all the fixin's but sounds so good.
Would love any and all suggestions that you have..

  1. I have a similar recipe that I've made as an accompaniment to chili... but I guess it would work well for a hair-of-the-dog brunch too. Maybe eggs scrambled with peppers/onions/salsa and cheddar cheese?

      1. I saw a PBS food show on Israeli food the other day and they made Shashouka, an egg-sausage-tomato-peppers kind of hash. Google it, I think it would be perfect for hair of the dog brunch with spicy cornbread.

          Like the "hash" idea....with poached eggs on top? ~~~ Jalapeno/Corn/Green Onion/Cheese Cornbread ~~~ Bloody Mary's and Hot Coffee!!

        2. I like to use cayene in my cornbread and some defrosted corn. T.J.'s has that frozen roasted corn that could be good in there. The cheese always makes it yummylicious. But trumans egg sound very good so I would omit the cheese if you decide to do them.

          1. Dorie Greenspan, in Baking from My Home to Yours, has a savory corn and pepper muffin that's really good, and has great colors. It uses chili pepper, jalapeno and red peppers so you get the red/green in corn muffin. I think you could top it w/ cheddar before baking and it would be really good. It's a muffin but you can do it as cornbread, too.
