Quick and easy Sauted Corn with Bacon and Scallions

Sauted Corn with Bacon and Scallions

by Megan on May 23, 2011

When I was a little girl, we would go and visit my grandmother in Idaho. She had a beautiful home and a huge garden.

I remember roaming throught the huge stalks of corn and stopping to see if you could really hear the corn grow.

I couldn’t.

I also remember, after being persuaded by Grandma to taste the corn right off the plant, sitting on the dirt, between the tall stalks eating fresh corn.

At dinner one evening, my grandmother was shocked to see how much corn on the cob us three children could eat. It was a favorite among the my siblings and I,  but not so much for my denture wearing father. He didn’t eat corn on the cob.

Those where the I thoughts I was having, as I was making this corn dish.

It would have been the perfect recipe to serve to my daddy.

Sauted corn with bacon pieces and scallion. Such a simple concept.

I used frozen corn for this recipe but I know itt would be even better with fresh corn cut right of the cob. And bacon, of course  just makes everything taste better. You even get a little bit of green from the scallions. I also added a little chopped chives from my garden.It was to pretty not to use. It was like a “hello” from my grandma.

This  dish was picked by Steak and Potato Kinda Gurl for today’s Martha Monday project. You can find this recipe on the Martha Stewart website,

It’s a great dish that  would be perfect to take to a BBQ or a potluck.

It was quick, easy, and delicious!

I have some fresh corn on the cob to use to make it, but didn’t have the green onions. How funny… I was thinking about using my fresh chives!

Oh, I visited my Grandparents on their farm as well (Michigan) and have similar memories. And I remember so well eating the corn right from the stalk. In fact, every year I try to grow corn (try is the operative word here, I am not always successful) so that I can provide the same experience to my grand-kids!!!

I love the recipe, and intend to try it. You’re right. Bacon makes all the difference!!

Love your site, and plan to visit frequently!!!

Such a nice story. This looks like the ideal corn dish and so much easier to eat then on the cob!
