Around Thanksgiving time last year a group at church put together a little fall cookbook. This was one of the recipes in it and I made it last year for Thanksgiving. It was another big hit. I love it because it's a great way to dress up a simple vegetable and make it extra special for the holidays. Make sure you get a high quality frozen corn as it makes a big difference. Sorry, no picture on this one.
Holiday Corn with Bacon and Fresh Herbs
6 slices bacon, drippings reserved
1/2 cup chopped onion (yellow or white)
2 tbsp flour
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 cup sour cream
3 1/2 cups whole kernel frozen corn
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 tbsp chopped fresh chives (garnish, optional)
Directions:In a skillet, fry bacon until crisp. Drain grease and save 2 tbsp drippings. Crumble the bacon and set aside. In your skillet with the reserved drippings, saute onions until tender, add flour, garlic and salt/pepper. Cook and stir until bubbly, then cook and stir one minute more. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream .Add corn, parsley and 1/2 the bacon, mix and pour into a 1 quart baking dish. Sprinkle the top with remaining bacon. Bake uncovered at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Serve with chives as a garnish.
Can be doubled & made in a 9 x 13 pan.
