Savory Sun Dried Tomato Corn Muffins

Bella Sun Luci sun dried tomatoes and corn are a fun combination! It's also fun to put fresh (or in this recipe, frozen) corn into whatever you're making too. I do this with polenta, corn chowder, cornbread and now in these corn muffins. It's also a good idea, if you're using fresh corn off the cob, to do this: after you cut the kernels off, simmer the cobs in whatever liquid you're using, in this case, buttermilk, to extract a LOT of extra flavor. These muffins are great for an outdoor barbecue, any brunch, or in place of cornbread any time.
