Recipe: Cheesy Corn

Cheesy Corn is a great little side dish… combining some of the best foods… corn, cheese and…. Drum roll please… bacon! This is similar to the cheesy corn on the menu at Applebee’s although I do think this is better…

We had this dish with BBQ ribs and coleslaw… a great little supper.


Use both the green and white parts of the green onion.. they’re both delicious.
You don’t have to thaw the corn.

Try to use smoked bacon, the smokey flavor really adds to this dish.

You can easily double this recipe…. the recipe makes about 4 side dish servings…

Quick and easy… the way weeknight cooking is supposed to be!

When the bacon has rendered some of its fat, add the butter and melt it.
