Having started with one small steakhouse, Golden Corral Corporation has grown into one of the nation's strongest family restaurant chains. The ability to adapt to changing tastes allowed Golden Corral to continue growing during the 1980s and 1990s as changes in eating habits and increased competition brought drastic change to the family steakhouse business. Success continued in the 2000s as well--by 2003 the company operated and franchised 467 restaurants throughout the United States, serving 167.5 million guests that year.


Jalapeno Corn Muffins

Golden Corral Copycat Recipe

1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons lime zest
4 tablespoons agave nectar
1 cup milk
2 large eggs
4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1-2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and lime zest in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and eggs until frothy. Add the butter, continuing to whisk until well combined. Add the wet ingredients and the agave nectar to the cornmeal mixture, stirring until well blended. Lastly, stir in the diced jalapenos. Coat a loaf pan, cast iron skillet or other baking vessel with nonstick spray and pour in batter. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the center of the bread is still slightly moist but not gooey. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
