Your family will be sweet on this summery side dish that combines corn "off" the cob with green pepper, bacon, cheddar cheese and honey. It's just as delightful with frozen corn. —Susan Paden Mexico, Missouri

"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."

"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!"

"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!"
