  1. Preheat oven to 375°; grease a large baking dish with butter and set aside.

  3. Drain the sausage and onion on paper towels.
  4. In a big bowl, whisk the cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, and baking soda together.
  5. In another bowl, whisk the buttermilk, oil, and eggs together; add to the dry mixture, and stir just until the dry mixture is moistened (do not overmix, the batter should be slight lumpy).
