I’m actually hedging with this one a little bit because this fried corn isn’t actually “fried.”

What it is is deeply sauteed in olive oil and butter. Is it so wrong?!! LOL

If I’m not using fresh corn on the cob to make fried corn, what is the preparation method?

What is the easiest way to remove the kernels from fresh corn on the cob?

Can fried corn with bacon be made in advance?

YES!!

I was making this one (pictured in the post) for a crowd, so I made it a day in advance and refrigerated it until it was time to reheat and serve.

Once ready to serve, I added it directly to the grill to reheat on medium/low until it was heated through, approximately 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally.

However, you can reheat it on top of the stovetop, or in the oven if you prefer.

Servings: 10 servings

Instructions
  1. In a large, high sided stock pot and using a sharp chef's knife, slice the kernels

    muss and no fuss.*

    medium/high heat for about 5 minutes.





  3. Add the diced bell peppers and the garlic to the pot. Stir and continue to cook over
