Corny Cheesy Cornbread Muffins Recipe

A Southern Staple with Soups, Stews, and Chilis!

corny cheesy cornbread muffinsThis cornbread muffins recipe is a southern staple at family gatherings….especially Thanksgiving dinner!  We LOVE our cornbread in the South and NOTHING goes better with a warm bowl of chili on a cold Fall night than some good ol’ cornbread muffins!

After Thanksgiving I always make a nice big pot of 3 bean turkey chili– it’s super yummy and a great way to use up some of that leftover turkey…and I ALWAYS make these Corny Cheesy Cornbread Muffins to go with it!

Now there are several different ways to make cornbread– and each way has it’s own unique taste… you may remember my Southern Style Skillet Cornbread which uses white cornmeal…today I’m going to be using yellow cornmeal which tastes completely different….so if you don’t like one don’t assume that you won’t like the other! 🙂
