DIRECTIONS

  • Over a large cast-iron skillet (or a nice, heavy skillet), cut and scrape the corn off the cobs so that you get the milky corn liquid. Add the onions to the skillet. Turn the heat to high.
  • Add the bacon drippings and 1/4 cup of the butter to the skillet. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Cook for 3 minutes, browning the corn before stirring. Reduce the heat to medium.
  • Stir in the milk and continue cooking until the milk is absorbed. Add the remaining 1/4 cup of butter. Cook until the butter is melted and mixed throughout.
