Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Cut corn off the cobs by thinly slicing across the tops of the kernels; place in a medium bowl. Cut across the kernels again to release milk from the corn, add milk to bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and green pepper, cook until onion is transparent, about 5 to 8 minutes. Combine corn, tomatoes, and milk with the onion mixture. Reduce heat to medium low, and cook 20 minutes longer, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Do not boil. Season with salt and cayenne pepper. Lower heat, cover skillet, and cook 5 to 10 minutes longer. Stir in green onions and bacon. Remove from heat and serve.

This was really good and so easy! Fresh corn is out of season so I used canned corn(but I'm sure frozen would be good too). I chopped the bacon and cooked it in a regular saute pan. I took the bacon out and added the peppers and onions. I added the canned corn and tomatoes at the end. I forgot the milk but I used some cajun seasoning as well as the cayenne pepper. I put the bacon crumbles on top before serving so they would stay crispy. We ate this with ribs and mashed potatoes. Thanks for a good recipe - I can't wait to try it with fresh corn!

We wanted something light and summery for dinner so decided on this recipe. I was skeptical about milking the cob-I cut mine so close there was nothing left(we didn't need it anyway). I used 2 roma tomatos, 1/2 a large onion and a good dash of garlic powder. I didn't think the 1/4 cup of milk would do it, but it was perfect. I didn't use cayenne as then the kids wouldn't eat it. The adults enjoyed it though the flavor was mild. Next time I will use bacon grease instead of vegetable oil to step up the flavor a little bit. Thanks!

Really great recipe. Unfortunately, I had to use frozen corn as corn on the cob is out of season here. The bacon and tomato really made the dish and the cayenne put it over the top. Be VERY careful how much you add. Do it very slowly. A tiny tiny sprinkle goes a looong way.
