Creamed Corn with Bacon

My family is addicted to this yummy, crunchy side. I like to make it in the summer with farm-fresh corn! —Tina Mirilovich, Johnstown, Pennsylvania

    This is good, but very rich. I didn't have any trouble with the dish being runny or liquidy. I think you just have to make sure you cook it down long enough, and don't get impatient. It's a special occasion dish, but a little rich for every day, at least for me.

    THIS IS AN AMAZING RECIPE!! I chose to try something new today... on Christmas Day!! Crazy maybe, but it was the absolute BEST!! I am a mother of 4 and honestly I am a pickier eater than my kids.... this recipe was so creamy but not too thick. It was just the right amount of salty and sweet! If you like corn and bacon you must give this a try! You won’t be disappointed!! Merry Christmas!!! ??

    This is really good! I use about 1/2 tsp of onion powder instead of fresh onions. And it has plenty of flavor even without the bacon.

    I made 1/2 recipe for 4 of us. I used a combination of frozen and canned corn because that was all I had on hand. A definite keeper.

    I never would have thought to add bacon with corn, but we loved it!

    Added a little cornstarch to thicken. Delicious.
