About

I've made this recipe a few times since I first ran across it in Food Network Magazine. If you haven't checked out this magazine yet, I cannot give it a strong enough endorsement. I'm a very visually oriented learner, and the layout and photos of the recipes and their components are some of the most visually pleasing I've encountered. This recipe comes from their "Out of the Box Challenge" feature, in which three recipe developers from the Food Network Kitchens are given one boxed or premade ingredient from which they develop their best recipe. This month's feature ingredient is Jiffy Corn muffin mix. The other two featured recipes were Cornmeal blini bites and corn muffin churros. Both look fantastic. This is my slightly tweaked version of that FNM recipe.
