Cornbread Cheddar Onion minis

Cornbread Cheddar and Green Onion Mini Muffins

I was making my 3 Bean Ale Stop Light Crock Pot Chili todaycornbread mini fall muffin tin and thought it would be great to make some cornbread to go with it.  I opened my baking drawer to pull out the muffins tins when I came across a fall themed muffin tin that I bought at William Sonoma a few years ago.  Oh perfect!  My kids are going to love these. The muffin tin has turkey, acorn, maple leaf and pumpkin leaves.  I used this tin for Thanksgiving a few years ago.
