Ba'corn Cheese Corn
American soldiers stationed in Korea might have had something to do with the creation of ba'con, the creamy, cheesy, bacon-studded corn gratin-gone-rogue commonly enjoyed alongside cold glasses of beer all over Korea. Using the most basic of ingredients and just one pan, you can easily make ba'corn at home as a satisfying side or almost-vegetarian main that your guests will keep coming back to. It all begins with bacon, cooked until all the fat has been rendered and ready to give the corn, green onions, jalapenos, and garlic a light browning. Once your kitchen is smelling divine, you'll stir in the cream and bring to a bubble before stirring in the bulk of your cheese--mozzarella is a must, while Monterey Jack adds some variety. Now into the broiler it goes to get that bubbly browned top that no one can resist. Get Chef John's recipe for Ba'corn Cheese Corn.
