Cooking Thursday

 I was recently given this recipe by my sister, and had a chance to try it out last week at a party at Bob's workplace.  It was easy to make and was very good.  It's a great thing to bring to a potluck!

Confetti Corn
8 slices bacon, chopped
2 packages (12-ounces each) frozen corn kernels, white or yellow
½ cup chopped onion, white, yellow or red
½ cup finely chopped red bell pepper
8-ounce package cream cheese, light or regular, cubed
1-2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
4 green onions, green parts finely chopped (white parts discarded)

In a large nonstick skillet, cook the chopped bacon until golden and crisp. Scoop the bacon to a paper-towel lined plate and discard all the bacon grease except for a thin coating on the pan, maybe a teaspoon or so.
Add the corn, onion, and red pepper, and cook over medium heat, stirring every so often, until the vegetables are tender and the corn is heated through, 6-8 minutes. Add the cream cheese and milk, stirring until the cream cheese melts and the mixture is evenly combined.
Stir in the sugar, salt and pepper. Add more salt to taste if needed. Stir in the green onions.
Serve warm topped with the reserved bacon.
This dish can be made up to 2 days ahead of time. Scoop the creamy corn mixture into an oven-safe dish, sprinkle with the bacon and cover with a lid or plastic wrap. Store in the refrigerator. When ready to eat, heat the corn dish in a 325 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until heated through.

WOW, Mari. I copied this even before commenting. Sounds so festive and special. I make crock pot creamed corn (without bacon) that's a lot like this, but I'm going to make this for sure. Maybe for TG's big birthday party on Tuesday! Thanks my friend! xoxo

I have to share this with my SIL Zach, he is the Bacon King. We went out for breakfast with them today and he ordered a side of bacon. They must have thought he looked extra hungry as they piled that bacon high on his plate. He smiled and said now that is a side of bacon hahaha...
Thank you Mari, I think I gained weight just looking at this photo.
Have a wonderful SONday.
