This new American classic-part Chinese pork bun, part corn dog-looked good, tasted great, and felt oh-so-right in my hand. Not only did the warm muffin feel good, but also I was eating cornbread with barbecue pork and my fingers were absolutely spotless!

Bell peppers, fresh corn kernels, Cheddar cheese, and pork sausage make delicious breakfast muffins. These would be great with a runny boiled (or steamed) egg tucked inside!

Savory Zucchini Muffins

A nice change from the traditional sweet zucchini muffin, this recipe utilizes zucchini, onion, garlic, roasted red pepper, and sun-dried tomatoes, resulting in a moist, savory muffin that's perfect at breakfast, lunch, or dinner time! You can sprinkle with a little shredded parmesan before baking, if you like.
