"There are lots of good fried corn recipes on the Zaar but there is NO bacon in this dish. It uses butter instead. I also thought the basil added was a great touch. I got this recipe from her magazine. Quick and easy. I bet you can use frozen corn too."

"This was very easy and tasty. I used fresh corn which I blanched and cut off the cob and added just a touch of half-n-half towards the end. DH gobbled it down. Thank you for sharing. Made for ~El Maiz~ Corn 2013."
"Loved this recipe...what a great way to serve fresh corn other than the old boring way....I bet I will be making this alot, I did use splenda instead of sugar the the diabetics in my group....thanks"
"Yummy! I'm a New Yorker (A "Yankee" to all you good ol boys!) now living in Chattanooga and I've had to learn how to cook "southern" for my boyfriend. You know the basics like Grits, Sausage gravy and biscuits, Fried Corn, okra, chicken, green tomatos and anything else that tastes good fried! I've made Fried corn before, but yours was exceptional! I think it was the Basil that really added that extra kick in taste! Thanks so much for posting this! I served it with Lemon Butter Tilapia and rice. Thanks again! Italianmomof2"
"Yum! Made this for dinner tonight to go with a new meatloaf recipe, and hubby and I really enjoyed it. I used frozen instead of fresh, and it turned out fine. Hubby normally doesn't care for just plain old corn, so I was surprised he enjoyed this so much and gobbled up 3 helpings. Thanks for a winning side dish that I will surely repeat."
"great corn recipe!! I used frozen corn.the family loved it"
"Cooked this up to go with salmon and brussel sprouts. Great tasting corn! I used corn cut off the cob. Thanks Mary for a delicious way to cook corn."
"I have made something similar to this in the past but not with fresh basil, this was wonderful, I increased the butter slightly and used seasoned salt and lots of fresh ground pepper, thanks Mary!"
"Very simple & extremly good recipe. I had to leave out the basil, because I didn't have any, but will add it next time. I used frozen corn & it turned out wonderfull. I did add garlic salt because I love garlic. Thanks for posting!"
"This is my new favorite side dish! Its easy and delicious. I never thought of basil with corn, but it brings out the sweetness of the corn!"
"Wow, this was wonderful. We had this as a side dish with recipe #235029 for dinner tonight - the flavours complimented each other perfectly. I used frozen corn, but don't feel it detracted at all from the end result. It will be difficult to eat corn any other way now!! Thanks mary for sharing this keeper."
"I made this recipe for (PAC) Pick~A~Chef Fall 2007. OMG this was great!!! I can't beleive I've never had fried corn, being from Oklahoma we fry just about everything. DH started while I was still getting supper on the table and he said "I know how you'll be cooking corn from now on!", and he was right. I did use frozen corn and and it turned out great."
"Yum-a-licious! I did add a Tablespoon of bacon fat. Couldn't resist."
"Finally... I found what seems to be my Mom's recipe. She's gone now, so no way of getting it exactly. My mom always made this for me, it was always my pick when she asked what I'd like her to make. Now, I have my own garden and am always lookin' for great corn recipes. Thanks again!!! Mary Ann"
"I added a little garlic BAM"
