  • 8 cups sweet corn kernels removed from cobs, or canned (drained), or frozen (thawed)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper seeded and finely diced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper seeded and finely diced
  • ¾ pound bacon cooked, drained, and crumbled or cut
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • In a large, high sided stock pot and using a sharp chef's knife, slice the kernels
    off the cob and directly into the stock pot. *Note - I used a small bowl to
    prop up the ears of corn on as I sliced the kernels right into the pot with no
    muss and no fuss.*

  • Add the olive oil and the butter into the pot with the corn and cook over
    medium/high heat for about 5 minutes.

  • Add the diced bell peppers and the garlic to the pot. Stir and continue to cook over
    medium/high heat for an additional 5 or so minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Add in the cooked and crumbled bacon and the salt and pepper.

  • Decrease the heat to medium/low for approximately 3-5 minutes.
