Cooking Instructions

Nothing goes better with barbecue than a side of cornbread. These sweet and crumbly Honey Cornbread Muffins on the Grill are the perfect side to any barbecue or holiday dinner and come together in just 30 minutes. They are versatile, delicious, and are sure to please even your pickiest eater. Once you make these for your family, they’ll become an instant favorite!

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs. Add in the buttermilk, sour cream, honey, and melted butter, crumbled bacon and mix well to combine. Set aside.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking soda, baking powder and Hickory Bacon. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mix and stir with a spatula until just combined.
  3. Using cooking spray, generously grease two muffin tins and divide the batter evenly among the prepared tins. Set aside.
  4. Fire up your Pit Boss Grill and set the temperature to 400°F. If you’re using a gas or charcoal grill, set it up for high heat. Place the muffin tins on the center of the grill and grill for 12-15 minutes, or until the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the grill.
  5. Allow the muffins to cool before removing from the pan and serving. Top the muffins with extra bacon and a drizzle of honey, if desired.
