Seasoned Corn with Bacon

    I'm required to take this to family dinners :)But, I don't measure the spices & go a little heavier on them than the recipe calls for

    This is a fun, yummy way to spice up your boring corn, my family loved it. I served it as a side with the Parmesan Crusted Talipia, it was a hit!

    Nice flavor. I had to add a little salt since my other seasonings didn't include any.
