This quick, easy southern fried corn recipe is a great way to fix corn when you're looking for something a little different.
This is a great recipe to make in the summertime when you can use all fresh ingredients including those wonderful Vidalia onions.
Try adding a little diced jalapeno peppers or green chiles if you want to add a some spicy heat to this recipe.
Here's what you are going to need to make 4 servings:
12 ounces of fresh or frozen whole kernel corn
3 slices of bacon
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 teaspoon flour
1/2 cup of milk
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
salt and Pepper to taste
Here's what you need to do:
In a large skillet, brown the 3 slices of bacon.
Remove the bacon and drain the bacon on paper towels. Leave the bacon drippings in the skillet.
To the skillet with the bacon drippings, add the corn, onions and red bell peppers.
Saute over medium high heat, stirring occasionally until the corn begins to brown.
Add the flour. Reduce the heat to medium low and continue cooking for a few minutes, just long enough to cook out the "flour" taste.
Stir in the milk.
Add the parsley.
Continue cooking over medium low heat until the corn thickens up. Add salt and pepper to taste.
To serve, you can either crumble the bacon and top the corn with the bacon bits or just stir the bacon bits right into the corn.
All that's left to do is to enjoy this wonderful southern summertime favorite!
