Bacon Fried Corn

Jenny Powers


As a child I would go to my grandmothers garden and pick fresh corn for dinner. She would cut it off the cob and fry it. It was so delicious and the natural sweetness from the corn would come out from the heat. I have added a twist to her old recipe and it is delicious. I hope you enjoy it.

ears of fresh corn
slices of bacon
water or milk as needed
salt and pepper to taste
zatarains creole seasoning to taste (optional)
2 Tbsp


1In an iron skillet, fry the bacon until crisp being careful not to burn. Remove the bacon and drain on a paper towel when done. Reserve the bacon drippings in the skillet.
2Cut the corn off of the cob. Next, scrape the cob to remove the juice from the cob.
3While the skillet is still hot add the corn to the skillet. Keep the skillet at a medium temperature and cook the corn stirring frequently. Add water or milk when needed. Salt and pepper to your taste. If you use Zatarain's creole seasoning, do not add salt. I used Zatarains this time and it was delicious. In about 15 minutes, the corn should be tender.
4Stir in the butter until melted. Put the cooked corn in a serving dish and crumble the cooked bacon over the dish.

You will not have a kernel left!!
