Corn and Bacon Sauté

This is an excellent side dish recipe for summer and grilling time! Especially if you have a side burner on your grill. We don’t, but it whips up quick inside as well.

First off – the pictures are dark as I had to use the flash. I was in the camper and it was H-O-T outside and all the shades were drawn. Next – one of my biggest tips would be to prepare your food in advance. Chop food at home, portion out what you need, etc. Of course, you can do this at the camper, but usually you have better things to do like drink a beverage or visit your neighbors. Really.

Ingredients

  • ½ an onion, diced
  • 6 strips Bacon, Chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. butter – divided
  • 16 ounces, weight Frozen Corn – or 3-4 ears of corn, off the corn
  • 1 pinch Kosher Salt
  • 1 pinch Garlic powder
  • 1 pinch Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • 4 whole Green Onions, Chopped

Preparation Instructions

In a large skillet, sauté the onion and bacon on medium-low with 1/2 Tbsp. butter and seasonings until bacon starts to get crisp, about 8-10 minutes. After the bacon is crisp, remove the bacon-onion mixture with a slotted spoon and discard the bacon drippings (I put mine in our campfire). Add the corn and the other 1/2 Tbsp. butter to the skillet and cook on medium-high heat until the corn is heated through and any moisture is cooked out. Return the bacon-onion mixture back to the skillet along with the green onions and stir it all together. Remove from heat. Serve.

Here are the simple ingredients you need:

I only had frozen corn, but fresh corn would take this over the top!! I can’t wait to make it that way again.

Brown your bacon and onions for a bit. Once it starts cooking, add in your seasonings.

This was getting near the end. You want to brown the bacon, but not burn it.

Remove the bacon and onion mixture, dump the extra grease (but for sure leave the drippings on the bottom of the pan – yum) and dump in your corn and 1/2 the butter. Fresh or frozen, the corn will give off some juices and that juice will remove those crispy bits on the bottom of the pan. This is a very good thing.

Once the corn is cooked, add back in the onion/bacon mixture and green onions. Mix together until heated through and serve. This will not take long.

An important step – serve in the shade!

Oh! One other thing – while you are in the camper making the side dish – have someone grill you a steak, preferably a ribeye! Smile

No need to be fancy, just serve in the dish you made this in. Less dishes is always preferred when camping!

Veggies still count if they have bacon in them, right?

Right! Enjoy! This is a perfect dish for summer.
