Combining my two favorites, fried onions and fresh corn, my husband came up with this very simple, delicious side dish.

For the people who said this was too fatty and too buttery (1/2 tablespoon per serving!)- This is really a nutritionally friendly recipe!

I used this as a side dish for Aussie Chicken from this site. I needed to cook some bacon for the chicken and I saw some reviewrs say that they thought a bit of crumbled bacon would taste good with this side dish. So, I used just a little bit of the bacon drippings to "fry" up the corn and onions. The result was amazing. It tasted wonderful and the hubby and I both really liked. I know not a healthy dish...but who cares. Tasted great. Thanks for the post. Read More

I grew up with this. I often add some chopped green bell peppers and on occassion, some fried bacon (crumbled). However, it really is good as is. Great side to burgers or grilled BBQ chicken. Fresh sweet corn is the best but I have used frozen corn w/ decent results. Read More

thought everybody knew about this.For winter use,blanch the ears and then cool in ice water.Cut off of ears and freeze.This way you will have it for winter days and never open a can of that bland and tasteless stuff again Read More

For folks who have not caramelized onions before - the process takes at least 20 minutes at low temp. Start the onions (with butter and salt/spice) first and once they get brown, and sweet, and delicious... :) then add the corn. Read More
