If there’s one food Indiana is known for, it’s corn. Though I’m not a native, I’ve learned to appreciate it just as well as any Hoosier (the official title for someone from Indiana, for those of you outside Midwestern America!).
These muffins are a great way to use the corn that’s available at the markets in Indiana these days. When baked, the sweet corn kernels add a burst of sweetness to each bite – and some cheddar cheese adds just a hint of savory flavor.
We made them for the following summer meal with friends — and they were so tasty, we know they’ll make several appearances as we move into early fall as well!
Try these as a great item for a meal with friends or family the upcoming Labor Day holiday! These Blueberry Tartlettes are also another one of our favorite new items to bring to a gathering.
Hope you have a great Labor Day! We’ll be enjoying avoiding labor by spending time with family and friends :)
