  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. When ingredient appears in recipe, remove from packaging. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry.

    Mix cream cheese, 1 Tbsp. corn muffin mix (reserve remaining for topping), and 1/4 cup water in provided tray until combined.

    Top evenly with diced peppers, corn, seasoning blend, and cheese.

  2. 2

    Add the Sausage and Topping

    Remove Italian sausage from casing. Break into small pieces and place on cheese.

    If using 16 oz. Italian sausage, follow same instructions. If using Beyond Sausage or ground turkey, crumble into small pieces and follow same instructions.

    In a mixing bowl, combine remaining corn muffin mix, 1/4 cup water, and hot sauce (to taste) until a thick, spreadable batter forms. If too thick, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

    Spread corn muffin-hot sauce batter over sausage. Batter will not cover entire meal.

  3. 3

    Finish the Dish

    If using 16 oz. Italian Sausage, follow same instructions. If using ground turkey, bake in hot oven until turkey reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 25-30 minutes. If using Beyond Sausage, bake until cornbread is golden brown, 25-30 minutes.
