Corn Muffins Made With Sweet Potatoes


Remember that unforgettable taste and aroma of mom's down-home Southern cooking? Well, Glory Foods honors that tradition with a selection of quick and easy Southern-style favorites prepared and seasoned just like you remember.

For the past week or so, I have been a little "out of it". Too much going on in my little world, and not getting the proper rest needed. Plus, I think the upcoming medical tests I am having done next week (March 11, 12 and 13) have been on my mind. And as much as I've been telling myself that everything is going to be just fine, there's that part of my mind that "has concerns". I took it easy this weekend, but thought it was about time I prepared a home-cooked meal. It had been awhile.

I'm a big fan of Glory Foods for when I'm not in the mood for "cooking from scratch". So when I saw these boxes of Golden Sweet Corn Muffin Mix on the shelf at the store today, I thought I would give it a try.

On the side of the box was an alternate recipe for the corn muffins using Glory's canned Sweet Potatoes.

So I grabbed a can and two boxes of the corn muffin mix. The muffins were so good, I thought I would share the recipe with you!

2 boxes of Glory Corn Muffin Mix
1 can of Glory Sweet Potatoes (drained and mashed)
2 eggs
1 tbsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. nutmeg
3 tbsp. sugar
3/4 c. milk

here's everything mixed together except the milk


after adding the milk


greased muffin tins


filled muffin tins


Preheat and bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, let set for 5 minutes, and enjoy!

I baked some boneless, skinless, chicken breasts and cut them up into bite size pieces
Diced some cheddar cheese
Drained a small can of Mandarin oranges
Sliced some red onions and
mixed a nice variety of lettuce and greens togetherto have a nice salad with the corn muffins. Yum Yum!

Have a great week everybody

Ok, glad to see you're done turning me into Homer Simpson! I'm so bummed that you can't get the ingredients here to make the muffins....can you please have one for me next time you make them? I have been to Texas twice and had cornbread only once of the trips (2nd) and boy did I love that! Thanks for my comment on my blog, it was much appreciated. Hannah was a strange lady, but we loved her and had alot of fun with her. On a brighter note, I just posted some pics of my Birthday squishies if'n you feel like checking them out...hugs Naomi from Adelaide, Sth Australia beadnv@optusnet.com.au

I tried it using my scratch cornbread recipe. I think I will use a little less potato next time, but it was absolutely delicious!!!

How delicious? I made 2 pans, a 9x13 and a small 5x5 pan last night. We ate 3 small pieces last night. My brother (Sweet Kurt)came through this morning (he has been so helpful)...by the time he and my neighbor (Ken) left, there were only 2 3x3 squares left!!!

Now I have to add that my scratch cornbread recipe is pretty darn good...add that to the sweet potato move...AWESOME!!!
