Creamed Corn with Roasted Red Peppers and Bacon

Creamed Corn with Roasted Red Peppers and Bacon
I am always on the lookout for tasty new side dish recipes to add to my box so when I came across the idea of creamed corn, think creamed spinach except with corn, on Picky Palate I just had to try it. I mean, you really cannot go wrong taking sweet corn and placing it in a creamy cheese sauce but then to add sweet and smoky roasted red peppers and bacon really takes this side over the edge! This creamed corn is super easy to make and you can even make it a day ahead and then just reheat it making it perfect for reducing the load for a big holiday meal! I am sure that this creamed corn with roasted red peppers and bacon will be a hit with any meal and it will be one of the first dishes to disappear from the table!

This sounds really good! I am wondering if it could be made in a crock pot...traveling to the in-laws this year!

Kevin Lynch said...

imkate: The bacon needs to be cooked and after that everything else will work fine in the crockpot. Enjoy!

Oh man - I've made slow cooker creamed corn but this is a million times better! We may just have to add this to our New Year's menu!

Made this last night to go with bbq ribs for NYE dinner with the neighbors, everyone loved it. I sauteed the corn in the same pan I cooked the bacon in, after draining the bacon grease, instead of using butter. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you for all of your recipes and hard work. Have a happy and healthy 2014!

Jill Eldring: I'm glad you enjoyed it! Good call using the bacon grease!
