Instructions Checklist
  • Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown, but still soft. Stir in onion and green bell peppers, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.

  • Reduce heat to low. Stir corn into skillet, and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Do not drain grease from bacon - that is the secret to the flavor.

My bacon was pretty 'fatty' so I drained quite a bit of the grease and was still too greasy for us. Think I will try this again drain all the grease add a little butter to the grease 'coating' in the pan and I also think this could use some garlic. Read More

This is the second time I have made this recipe. I make it exactly as stated and it comes out great!! I have 8 children ranging from 1-16 and they ALL love it!! Now that's an accomplishment!! It is easy to cook and goes great with a simple potato or green bean casserole. I trimmed my bacon just slightly this time to decrease some of the fat and couldn't tell a difference! Read More

I was asked to bring a vegetable for Christmas dinner--Boring! But when I brought this brightly colored flavorful corn everyone raved and asked for the recipe--Fun! Read More

To prevent this from being so greasy i cooked the bacon separately and crumbled and tossed together at end. All the ingredients came together nicely. Nice side dish. Read More

This was good if you like greasy corn. I did give it two stars because 1)It smelled good and 2)It looked really yummy...nice and colorfull. It tasted like bland greasy corn though. If I ever attempt to make this again, I will definatly drain the bacon grease and add some kind of spice. It was blah Read More

I couldn't even imagine putting the corn into all of that bacon grease so I drained most of it off and was still left with a nicely bacon flavored side. Thanks Michele! Read More
