Gluten-Free Skillet Cornbread with Breakfast Sausage

The perfect brunch definitely, always involves cornbread. There’s something about this one that is so deliciously hearty, made in old-fashioned cast-iron and featuring farm-fresh breakfast sausage. I highly recommend a few extra squares of butter on top right after pulling it out of the oven, then watching it melt onto that golden crust.
