For me the side dish is just as important as the main dish. In fact, I really think that a great side dish like this recipe for Skillet Fried Corn can take even a simple dinner over the top.
There is really no way you won’t love Skillet Fried Corn but just in case you need convincing let me list a couple reasons. First, it’s made with crisp, delicious, summer corn. The second reason is bacon. You read that right I said: B-A-C-O-N!
In the summer when there’s fresh corn available this it a great recipe to use it with. If there’s no fresh corn available or you don’t have time to clean ears of corn frozen kernels will work just fine.
Begin, with dicing up a green bell pepper and a small white onion. Mince three cloves of garlic and set them aside. Fry up five slices of bacon in a skillet and set aside on a paper towel to drain.
Now, here’s the most important part; do not drain the grease from the skillet. Instead add the onions, peppers, and garlic to skillet. Cook them stirring occasionally until the they are soft and the onions translucent.
Next add in the corn. If you are using frozen kernels there’s no need to defrost them (see I just saved you some time) just dump them right in the skillet. Cook until the corn softens then cover and reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Crumble bacon into mixture and cook for another 5 minutes.
That’s all there is to it Skillet Fried Corn is easy to make but so, so good! If you’re looking for more ways to prepare and enjoy corn scroll down and check out all the recipes from my fellow bloggers at #SundaySupper.
