This is a Cajun recipe I've had forever! I first prepared it when I was in my high school class in Metairie, Louisiana. It's awesome!

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and green pepper, cook until onion is transparent, about 5 to 8 minutes. Combine corn, tomatoes, and milk with the onion mixture. Reduce heat to medium low, and cook 20 minutes longer, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Do not boil. Season with salt and cayenne pepper. Lower heat, cover skillet, and cook 5 to 10 minutes longer. Stir in green onions and bacon. Remove from heat and serve.

This was really good and so easy! Fresh corn is out of season so I used canned corn(but I'm sure frozen would be good too). I chopped the bacon and cooked it in a regular saute pan. I took the bacon out and added the peppers and onions. I added the canned corn and tomatoes at the end. I forgot the milk but I used some cajun seasoning as well as the cayenne pepper. I put the bacon crumbles on top before serving so they would stay crispy. We ate this with ribs and mashed potatoes. Thanks for a good recipe - I can't wait to try it with fresh corn! Read More

We wanted something light and summery for dinner so decided on this recipe. I was skeptical about milking the cob-I cut mine so close there was nothing left(we didn't need it anyway). I used 2 roma tomatos 1/2 a large onion and a good dash of garlic powder. I didn't think the 1/4 cup of milk would do it but it was perfect. I didn't use cayenne as then the kids wouldn't eat it. The adults enjoyed it though the flavor was mild. Next time I will use bacon grease instead of vegetable oil to step up the flavor a little bit. Thanks! Read More

Really great recipe. Unfortunately I had to use frozen corn as corn on the cob is out of season here. The bacon and tomato really made the dish and the cayenne put it over the top. Be VERY careful how much you add. Do it very slowly. A tiny tiny sprinkle goes a looong way. Read More

Turned out great with no modifactions. If/when I make this again I'll dice the onions rather than slice them for the sake of consistency and to make it easier to eat. It went over really well at a covered dish luncheon. Read More

Very good. I used three cups of canned corn drained instead of fresh. Read More

This was a great cool-down with a hot Cajun meal. If you're feeling lazy you can also use bacon bits instead of the real thing. Read More

Great flavor! Especially warm/hot. I don't recommend eating it cold as you lose some of that flavor. Served it with a kilbasa. Yummo! Read More

I made this as a side dish for a Mardi Gras dinner party. Everyone loved it. I made it as written using red and orange peppers and frozen corn and adding "Slap Ya Mama" Cajun seasoning. I soaked the corn in a mixture of 2% milk and Half and Half while I chopped all the vegetables and fried the bacon. After cooking as directed I put it in a preheated 200 degree F oven to keep warm until transporting to the party. I did add the bacon and green onions before putting the dish in the oven. I plan to make this again as a side dish -- Mardi Gras or not! As someone at the party said "Why don't we do this with corn all the time? This is SO good!" Read More
