Caramelized Onion, Cheddar and Rosemary Corn Muffins

Happy weekend everyone! 
You ready for some corn bread? Whether you are having one of your last summer BBQs or you're making your famous camp chili or you're just super excited for fall to finally be here, make these muffins for your guests/family/coworkers and watch their faces when you describe all the wonderful ingredients going into them. They'll think you're a big time fancy chef!

At least my family did. I really wanted to show them my skills and what better way to that than take whatever you find in the fridge and make really great food out of it? But it wouldn't be a me recipe if it weren't tasty and incredibly simple to make.In fact, I used a bag cornbread mix. I really did. And you should to. I'm all for recipes that make life easier for you.

I made these up in Tahoe for one of our traditional rib nights. Don't those look heavenly? The men in my family, i.e. my brother, his best friend, and my boyfriend, can BBQ!

Not only was the food really great but the setting couldn't have been more lovely. The deck of our cabin looks out to the woods and a great hiking trail. Couldn't pass giving you a glimpse of my setting.

Matt was also very eager to show off the food. He's really excited about these muffins!

Caramelized Onion, Cheddar and Rosemary Corn Muffins

Ingredients:
1/2 cup Grilled onions
Corn bread mix (I prefer Jiffy, though the Costco brand is also great)
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup grated Cheddar
1 tbsp finely chopped Rosemary

Directions:
1. Preheat your oven to 400f. Grease pans or place paper baking liners in the cups.

2. Because the onions take the longest to make, start with those. I use this link for my caramelized onions. Let those brown up slowly while you make prep the rest of the ingredients. Be careful, keep and eye on those onions.

2. Now it's time for the cornbread. Of course, if you're awesome and you made your own cornbread mix from scratch you'd want to do that now... but if you're awesome with a side of lazy, go ahead and grab that box proudly and mix it up. Blend the cornbread mix, egg, milk, cheddar, and rosemary in a bowl until just combined. The batter will be slightly lumpy.

3. Once your caramelized onions are done, add them to your mix and give it a big stir.

4. Scoop out equal portions of the mix into each cup. Fill about 2/3 the way up.

5. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 400f until just golden brown.

6. Serve up with something messy and enjoy!

  2. These sound delicous. And I love taking a mix and doctoring it up in all kinds of ways. Cake mixes are great for that as well!! And the ribs look fantastic!!
