    Thank you! This is exactly the recipe I was looking for to make my Honey's Aunt Leedy's corn. It's just like hers that was lost & we thoroughly enjoyed it & will pass it along in her memory.

    What a yummy combo. I used more bacon, and less water and bacon grease, since I used Trader Joe's precooked bacon (it doesn't release very much fat when crisped in the pan).
