Fried Corn, Southern-Style

Here’s a family favorite.

Fry four strips of bacon in a large frying pan. Remove when crisp.
Add one frozen package of corn, thawed, and 1/2 cup chopped onion to the drippings in the pan. (If you like, you can also add some chopped celery or green pepper.)
Cook over low heat until crusty brown bits form. Stir the crumbled bacon back in. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

How easy is that? It doesn’t require a lot of attention, so it’s easy to make as a side dish, although since it’s substantial, it goes well with a simple chicken or fish main course. And mmm, mmm, corn fried in bacon grease. Very Southern and tasty.

    That sounds great!
    Should I put the Bacon in with the corn and onions or can I just eat it?
    I love me some Bacon!

    Oops! I forgot. I added that step in — I shouldn’t try to write recipes after eating the food, because I get distracted. Thanks for the reminder!
