Paula Dean's Fried Cream Corn


I discovered this recipe last summer when fresh sweet corn came into season and it was a hit with my family and friends. This is a great recipe to use to make when you can find that great summer corn for cheap! Be aware it make a lot, too so be ready for the left overs


Ingredients

  • 12 Ears Fresh Corn
  • 4 Slices of Thick Sliced Bacon
  • ½ Stick Butter
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Directions

Remove the corn from the cob using a knife or corn grater

Lightly mash the kernels so they release some of the corn starch

Slice bacon into small pieces and brown in a skillet

Remove the bacon from the skillet but leave the bacon grease

Add the butter to the bacon grease in the skillet

Over medium heat, add corn to butter and bacon grease

Fry all the ingredients for a few minutes

Lower the temperature and cook for five minutes

Simmer until corn is done about 10-15 minutes

Add pepper to taste

Garnish by adding done bacon slices on the top

(Note: If corn appears to dry add a little milk)

Serves 8

Total average cost of the dish, based on using coupons and buying on sale: $4.00
