Or nights when you make "big salads" for dinner? (Does anyone remember the Seinfeld episode where they went to a new diner and Elaine wanted a "big salad" and was told, "we don't do big salads here. We can give you two small salads if you want." Seinfeld is hilarious.) But I digress.....
I love to make a batch of these cornbread muffins to go with dinner on nights when I make a quick soup or salad. They take maybe all of 5 minutes to make, and about 20 to bake and are GREAT!!!! Especially with soup or salad!
Plus, they're cheap to make, and I almost always have the ingredients on hand!
- 1 box Jiffy Cornbread Mix
- 1/2 of a Yellow Cake mix (just eyeball half, I don't even measure or anything like that) (save the other half for the next time you make cornbread!!)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup water
Dump all the ingredients into a medium bowl
Give it all a whisk (it's ok if the batter is a little lumpy, it will all work out) then you can either make a dozen or so muffins, or one 8 x 8 pan. Either way, you want to bake the cornbread at 400 for 15-20 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.
Then you want to smother it in butter and eat about 6 muffins. Then you want to fit into your skinny jeans, but HELLO that is not going to happen... you just ate 6 muffins and a ton of butter!! Sheesh.
