corny and blue

Last night I made blue cheese corn mini muffins based on this recipe. It was so easy. I didn't follow the recipe exactly, I just followed instructions on the corn bread mix box (4 for $1!!!), which were preheat oven to 400ยบ, mix in milk and bake. I just made 3 boxes worth, added a crumbled up 4 oz. block of blue cheese and snipped in some green onions. I added plenty of fresh pepper and a bit of salt, too. They turned out so yummy. We're having a food day at work today. I wish I would have gotten stuff to make more, but It was kind of experimental, so I didn't want to go overboard. I hope everybody likes 'em.

I'm not much of a baker, but I love taking box mixes and adding stuff. I do this a lot with fat free brownie mix, but I never really considered the corn bread route. I think I'll be eating alot of corn bread this winter :)

I came upon the idea because a friend mentioned quick breads, so I did a search and that one caught my eye from this list.

Here's a list of fat-free quickbread recipes. With lots of vegan options, too!

The same pal who put the thought of quickbreads in my little head also turned my on to King Arthur Flour's website, which has a great recipe section. Check out the quickbreads section.
