Here’s another great recipe a friend made for a recent dinner that I had at my home. This is the best corn recipe I’ve ever had – I’ve never had anything like this. I thought it was so wonderful that I just have to share! This would also be great for Thanksgiving.
Creamy Fried Confetti Corn
8 bacon slices
4 cups corn kernels
1 medium white onion, chopped
1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 (8-oz) package cream cheese, cubed
½ cup half-and-half
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1.) Cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp; remove bacon and drain on paper towels, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings in skillet. When bacon is cool, crumble and set aside.
2.) Saute corn, onion, and bell peppers in hot drippings in skillet over medium-high heat 6 minutes or until tender. Add cream cheese and half-and-half, stirring until cream cheese melts. Stir in sugar, salt, and pepper. Pour into serving dish and top with crumbled bacon.
Serves 6 to 8.
