Add some variety to your corn muffins! Skip the onions, and add one of the following: 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup whole kernel corn or 1/3 cup chopped bell pepper.
Look for the divided scone pan at kitchen specialty stores.
Serve a special butter with cornbread. Beat 1/2 cup softened butter with a couple tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese and a tablespoon of chopped fresh herbs such as basil leaves.
