Skillet Corn Recipe

A southern side dish that takes corn on the cob and kicks it up a notch with bacon, peppers and onions.
Course Side Dish
Servings 6


  • 6 ears of fresh corn on the cob or 1 bag of frozen corn
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 1/2 green pepper diced
  • 1/2 red pepper diced
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper diced
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Shuck the corn and cut the kernels off the cob.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until brown. Set aside to drain.
  • In the same skillet with the bacon grease add in the diced peppers and onion. Cook for 4-5 minutes until slightly tender.
  • Add in the corn and continue to cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently. *If using frozen corn, turn the heat down to low before adding, being sure to add slowly to prevent grease from splattering.
  • Right before serving, add the butter and stir until melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
