Here in the Northeast you can visit any diner and order a grilled corn muffin. They will cut the muffin in half, slather it with butter and grill it to perfection. But alas, the corn muffins from your local diner or bakery are not gluten free.
I have recreated the diner grilled corn muffin at home. I start with gluten free corn muffins from Foods By George. They are a little grainy like really good corn muffins should be, not dry or crumbly.
Who can resist this? Paired with your favorite hot beverage or as a side with eggs, a gluten free grilled corn muffin is delicious.
Pro tips and recipe notes
- Today, I have frozen corn muffins from Foods By George. Go with any corn muffins you prefer.
- For individual serving, wrap each frozen muffin in a paper towel and microwave on high for about 40 seconds. Let it sit for a minute to distribute the heat before slicing.
Also, I want to note that I didn’t receive any compensation from Foods By George for writing this recipe. These opinions are completely my own — I just had to share this wonderful product with all of you.
Grilling really intensifies the flavor of these muffins. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
