If you love fresh sweet corn and bacon you will love the way the two are married up in this yummy side. I did reduce the cook time to from 15 minutes to 10 minutes as we like fresh corn just lightly cooked. Thanks for the wonderful post.


  1. Scrape kernels from the corn--should yield about 3 cups.
  2. In a large skillet, heat bacon fat over medium heat until sizzling. Add corn and season with salt and pepper. Cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Add butter and stir to combine. Taste and adjust for seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
