Bacon Fried Corn



Bacon Fried Corn – need we say more??

Yesterday we shared a fun and easy method of shucking corn using your microwave.  Of course you need a good reason to try it out . . . what better inspiration could you have than this Southern favorite?  Fresh sweet corn off the cob fried in a mix of bacon drippings and butter until nicely browned- then topped with crumbled bacon.  Who can resist? 


Bacon Fried Corn


12 ears fresh corn
8 bacon slices
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper


Remove and husks and silks from corn.  {see Easy Method here}  Cut off tips of corn kernels into a large bowl; scrape milk and remaining pulp from cob with a paring knife.


Cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp; remove bacon, reserving 3 tablespoons drippings in skillet. 

Cook corn, butter and next 3 ingredients in bacon drippings over medium to medium-high heat 20-25 minutes or until liquid is reduced out and corn is lightly browned, stirring often.  (The corn will begin to brown when the liquid is gone- be patient.)  Spoon corn into serving dish and crumble bacon on top.  You can mix the bacon in, but it stays crispier if you serve it on top.
