Looking for a good cornbread muffin recipe? I’ve got one that was a game day win.
Over the weekend, we celebrated Superbowl Sunday with friends, football and a seafood boil. Just the seafood alone was delicious, but I wanted something as a side dish that spiced things up a bit. I found a recipe online and added a surprise ingredient to it! Giving comfort food a twist and spicing things up with these Serrano pepper bacon cheddar cornbread muffins.
These delicious cornbread muffins will certainly put some south in your mouth and leave you wanting more. I was looking for something with a kick to serve alongside our snow crab seafood boil which also included spicy sausage, corn and red potatoes. I have always added a few extra ingredients to my cornbread to make it sweet and this recipe was no exception.
My secret ingredients for this recipe are a tablespoon of sugar to sweeten the cornbread and minced Serrano peppers to give it a bit of heat. I always add just a bit of sugar to our cornbread mix because it can otherwise be a bit bitter depending on the recipe. So why the Serrano peppers? A Serrano pepper is quite a bit hotter than a jalapeno pepper. The heat of the pepper added to the other ingredients blends to a delicious combination of flavors.
Here’s how I put together a batch of Serrano pepper bacon cheddar cornbread muffins for the game.
While this cornbread recipe was absolutely delicious served alongside seafood, I would also pick this recipe again if I were baking Sunday ham with collards. Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix has always been my go to brand because of the quality and price.
