Pepped-Up Boxed Cornbread

We love corn muffins, but we don’t always have time to make them from scratch. A boxed mix is an easy way for us to have corn muffins at any time. So we like to keep a couple boxes in our pantry ready to go at a moment’s notice. What’s even more fun about corn bread is how it can be made both sweet and savory.

Sometimes a box mix can be a little boring, so this recipe really jazzes up the pre-made mix and gives us a flavorful, slightly sweet muffin that is moist and delicious. All you have to do is add the ingredients and bake until perfect. We made them last night as a side for chili, then warmed the leftovers this morning for a tasty breakfast. Try them today!
