Mama Nibbles: Italian Basil Sun Dried Tomato Corn Muffin Recipe

Italian Basil Sun Dried Tomato Corn Muffin Recipe

     Mooney Farms is the largest producer of sun dried tomatos in the U.S. and they were founded in 1987.  Mooney Farms has been handed down from generation to generation.  Their family recipe for sun dried tomatoes packed in olive oil has never changed.  Once you try their sun dried tomatoes everything will change!  Every product they make is handcrafted in true Mediterranean tradition using a plethora of fresh ingredients from Northern California. 

     Mooney Farms Bella Sun Luci sun dried tomato products are some of the best I have ever smelled, tasted and seen.  Tomato lovers, eat your heart out!  I don't think my pantry will ever be without at least one Bella Sun Luci product.  Inspired by their fresh, sweet and totally phenomenal flavor I created a quick and easy recipe with the help of my 6 year old son whom I like to refer to as my "mini chef".  This recipe will disappear within minutes.  

     Sun dried tomatoes contain Lycopene a phytochemical and proven antioxidant that fights free radicals in the body.  Ounce per ounce sun dried tomatoes have 12 times the amount of Lycopene than a raw tomato!  So eat to your good health!




{Mama Nibbles} Bella Sun Luci Cheesy Bruschetta Corn Muffins


Ingredients

1 package sweet corn muffin mix (enough to make 12 muffins)

2 Tbsp Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomato Bruschetta with Italian Basil

1/2 cup shredded triple cheddar cheese (Vermont White, Sharp, and Mild Cheddar) *I freeze my cheese shreds, this helps them to melt more slowly as the batter bakes

1 Tbsp cream cheese softened
Cooking Directions:

Make muffin mix according to the package but be sure to use 1 Tbsp less of oil. Mix in the Bella Sun Luci Bruschetta, cheese shreds and cream cheese. Scoop into a greased muffin tin. Bake according to directions but I suggest going a couple minutes less. Cool in the pan for 3 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely.
