A Corny Friday Night Light Bite

I mean really, the whole "Friday Night Bite" name is corny in and of itself. Here is a corn spoonbread that is a lightened version of my favorite (Jenn's recipe) spoonbread. Easy to make and extra yummy, no one will ever know it is lightened. I am making some tonight with a pork loin and broccoli.

Friday Night Corn Spoonbread
1 package corn muffin mix (usually about 8oz)
1 small can corn, drained (about 8 3/4 oz)
1 regular can creamed corn (about 15 oz)
1 8oz container plain fat free yogurt
2 egg whites, lightly whisked
1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 350. Combine all ingredients, pour into a square baking dish, coated in cooking spray. Bake for 45 minutes or until set.

Love it! Thanks for lightening it. Melissa made this for the OSU block party last weekend and Rachel ate a ton. It is soooo good.

One more thing. Saw an article at the doctor's office yesterday about what to do with all that trick-or-treat candy. This one family has the kiddos fill a sandwich sized Ziploc bag with their favorites and then put the rest by the fireplace. The Candy Fairy (similar to the Tooth Fairy) comes and takes away the extra and leaves a small gift in return. Not a bad idea since this year I think Rachel will be visiting more than a few houses if last night's trick-or-treating at Disney World is any indication.

Interesting idea on the candy fairy! That will be a future post for sure...what to do with the extra candy!
