Here I am. Almost two weeks late with my corn recipe. It’s a good thing this is a group of Good Friends or I would be kicked off the island by now. It has just been one of those weeks or so when nothing worked out the way it should. My bad!

This week the ingredient was corn. Peggy’s choice. Sorry it took me so long, Peggy!

It is the last week before a new round of ingredients begins and a new theme.

I needed some thing easy and quick. This fried corn was calling my name.

The recipe is super simple as is the list of ingredients. Corn, bacon, butter, onions, salt and pepper. That’s all. That’s it.

  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 2 cups corn kernels (I used frozen since the good stuff isn’t available yet!)
  • 1/4 cup diced  onions 
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
In a large cast-iron skillet, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until nice crisp.
Remove the bacon from the skillet leaving the bacon grease in the skillet. Chop the bacon into bite-sized pieces.
Add the onions to the skillet and until translucent.
Add the remaining ingredients and cook for 10 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
Stir in the bacon after the corn is completely cooked.
Enjoy!

This was really good for such a simple dish. Definitely a keeper. Even though it is NOT Keto friendly.

Next week we are starting with salads. We choose one ingredient and make a salad. Not going to be easy but these good friends can do it!
