With some main dishes I like to add something besides rice or mashed potatoes. (as a starch).

Example : a Savory Tart – rice or mash won’t do .. just a side or a salad, no, .. I want my starch! As well as the side or salad !

That is where these Sweetcorn Muffins come in quite handy. And most definitely not only as a side dish.

From start to into your mouth – 30 minutes !  This is also great as an anytime snack, just a pat of butter, or with some grated cheese if you prefer.

I have two different favorite recipes for savory muffins which I use as a side with a meaty dish – this Sweetcorn Muffin and a Cheese Muffin.

My daughter prefers the Sweetcorn and my son the Cheese. Not always sure about hubby though. He is not a picky eater, but I know he likes both the Sweetcorn and the Cheese.

The rule in our house !

We have a rule (one of many !), if I make a new dish, they must give me an honest feedback. This can range from very good to, please never again.

My family knows if they are not truthful and tell me it was good, I will make it again and what good will that do ? It will be them suffering through a lousy dish again – right?

This is a good one, even though my son has his preferences!
