Reviews for Fresh Corn Medley
"Oh my, this is soooo good! We have been fortunate to have really good fresh corn this summer. Usually I serve it straight up with salt, pepper, and plenty of butter. I decided to try something different and this was it. I didn't have pimentos or green peppers but didn't want to pass up this recipe. I used sweet red bell pepper in place of the green pepper and just omitted the pimentos. I used 6 ears of corn and that was just a tad more than 4 cups. This is a beautiful side dish that will compliment any meat. This was gobbled up by 4 hungry adults at a cookout along with grilled chicken, baked beans, and watermelon. I plan to take this to a potluck in the future."
"This is a delicious side dish! I loved it!"
"Very Good! I substituted can corn for fresh/frozen and imitation bacon bits, just to save time. Will make again ~ beats plain corn any day!"
"I'm not a pepper lover but they tasted very good in this dish!"
"I have prepared many times. I am consistently asked for the recipe."
"Great flavor! I substituted red bell pepper for the pimento and added it to the saute pan with the green pepper and onion. I had three ears of corn on hand, and I found that each ear made about one cup, so I would say that to make a full batch, you'd need at most five ears of corn, not nine. I've been experimenting with different seasonings and spreads for corn this summer and between this recipe and one I tried for cilantro-lime butter, my husband says he's not sure he'll ever be able to eat a regular piece of corn again!"
