Southern Fried Corn

Happy Fryday! It’s been a while since we had a proper Fryday around here. The last time was nearly a month ago, and it was another three weeks the time before that. Thinking about it bums me out, because I really do love my Frydays. Anyway, you’d think I’d have some weight loss to show for it, but I don’t. Too bad diminished fried-food making didn’t mean the same for fried-food eating. 

For today’s return, I have a recipe for Southern Fried Corn, a dish very new to me, so new that I didn’t even know it was a thing until I went looking for it when the urge for corn hit. And boy am I happy it did. Southern Fried Corn makes for a great side dish and tastes deceptively healthy despite the bacon, butter and milk. But really, who cares? It’s Fryday! Here’s how I made mine.

Southern Fried Corn Ingredients
Start with: 4 slices of bacon (I went with fully-cooked because I like knowing that some of the grease has already been cooked out), a 16-oz bag of frozen corn, a green bell pepper, 1 tablespoon butter, 1 cup milk (not pictured)

Cooking Bacon for Southern Fried Corn

Start by chopping bacon into smaller pieces. Throw bacon into a big pot and cook on medium heat until browned. Remove bacon and set aside. 

Southern Fried Corn Step by Step
Using the same pot, cook frozen corn, chopped green onion, salt, pepper and butter over medium high heat for 5 minutes, stirring the ingredients around. 

Adding Bacon to Southern Fried Corn
Add bacon bits back to the pot. Stir. 

Adding Milk to Southern Fried Corn
Pour in milk and continue cooking on medium until the green pepper is cooked. 

Add flour to help thicken up the milk. 

Making Southern Fried Corn
Cook some more until the corn thickens up.

Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with extra bacon bits if you’re feeling adventurous. 

Delicious Southern Fried Corn

Enjoy as a side dish with any of your favorite summer foods.

Southern Fried Corn is a great way to jazz up frozen corn. You’ll find yourself gobbling it up by the spoonful. Brian loved it and consumed two bowls’ worth. They weren’t small ones either. 

Here’s to a lovely weekend full of big plans and big fun. Brian and I fly to Florida tonight to spend the weekend with his aunt, uncle and cousin in Sarasota. It’ll be my first time there and I can’t wait to spend a low-key weekend with great people on the beach and by the pool. Thank God for cover-ups. TGIFryday. Have a great one!
