  • 1 pound fully-cooked smoked sausage
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons All-Vegetable Shortening

  • 1 (16 oz.) jar spicy pickle slices, drained and quartered

Preparation Directions

  3. HEAT 12-inch Lodge Cast Iron Skillet or Griddle over medium to medium-high heat.
  4. COOK sausage in skillet 2 to 3 minutes on each side until browned. Remove from skillet. Drain on paper towel. Leave sausage drippings in skillet.
  5. SPOON tablespoonsful of corn meal mixture into hot skillet creating small (about 2-inch) hoecakes. Cook 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Turn and cook on other side. Remove hoecakes from skillet. Place on baking sheet. Keep warm in oven on low heat (about 200 degrees) while cooking remaining corn meal mixture. If needed, add 1 tablespoon shortening to pan for each batch of hoecakes.
  6. To build the hoecake sliders, TAKE one hoecake and spread with pimento cheese. Top with two slices of sausage and about four pickle quarters. Spread pimento cheese on another hoecake and then place it on top to create a small sandwich or slider. Hold it together with a toothpick if necessary. Repeat to make additional sliders. Serve immediately and enjoy.
