For the people who said this was too fatty and too buttery (1/2 tablespoon per serving!)- This is really a nutritionally friendly recipe!

I used this as a side dish for Aussie Chicken from this site. I needed to cook some bacon for the chicken and I saw some reviewrs say that they thought a bit of crumbled bacon would taste good with this side dish. So, I used just a little bit of the bacon drippings to "fry" up the corn and onions. The result was amazing. It tasted wonderful and the hubby and I both really liked. I know not a healthy dish...but who cares. Tasted great. Thanks for the post.

I substituted 2 cups of corn for the 4 fresh ears-this was a great side with barbecued ribs.
