This is one of my families favorite side dishes. My mother-in-law made this for me when I was pregnant with my first child and I couldn't stop eating it. I almost finished the entire skillet. It was so delicious.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This cream corn recipe is filled with classic flavors that are sweet and rich, perfect for summer. It is delicious and creamy, but the corn itself is still crisp and fresh like it's off the cob. Savory bacon with sweet corn is a beautiful combination.
