Sweet and Easy Cornbread Muffins

Sweet and Easy Corn Bread Muffins

I love cornbread, but I seem to be the only one in my family that eats them as leftovers. I finally was smarter than usual and started making corn bread muffins so that I had an easy way to freeze the leftovers. They are perfect to pull one or two out of the freezer and defrost them just for me.

  3. In a separate bowl stir together eggs, milk and oil. Add liquids to flour mixture and stir until moistened.

My cookbook has the note to double this recipe- a great idea when you have room in the freezer. These go well with a little bit of butter and honey, or crumbled up in some chili!

Sausage Link Chili and Cornbread
I went to go make my version of my mom’s favorite chili (everyone who tries it immediately claims it as their new favorite chili) and as I pulled everything out to make it I realized I didn’t really have all the ingredients that I thought I did.

Go check out >Mom’s Favorite Chili here, then come back and see my changes!

I start off by cooking my tomato sauce. I buy tomatoes in bulk sometimes and freeze them so I first have to defrost them and the zucchini I add to them and puree them. I then let them cook on high in the crock pot for an hour, or for 15-20 minutes on the stove.

Next I add all of the ingredients my mom does, except this time I used sliced sausage hot links instead of ground beef. I also add a little extra chili powder.
