Quick & Easy Cornbread Muffins Recipe: Who Needs Stuffing on Thanksgiving Day?

Not a big fan of stuffing or nervous to make it? Who needs cornbread stuffing when you can serve quick cornbread muffins instead on Thanksgiving Day?

Love cornbread muffins! What a great idea to serve them instead of cornbread stuffing. So easy. Then no dinner roll issues either. Covers both! :)
