DIRECTIONS

  • Shuck the corn and remove all of the silk.

  • Remove bacon from skillet with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  • Add the onions and red bell peppers to the skillet with the bacon drippings and sauté until the onions are translucent.

  • Season to taste with salt, freshly ground black pepper, and a dash of sugar.
  • Pour in the cream and bring to a boil.
  • Immediately reduce heat and simmer until cream reduces and thickens slightly, about 5 minutes more.
  • Crumble the bacon and stir into the corn.
  • Serve immediately.
