Southern Fried Corn

There are so many different ways to prepare fried corn. But, this is one of our families favorites.

4 slices of bacon
2 T. flour
1 c. water
1/4 c. milk
*1/2 small onion, chopped fine (optional)
salt & pepper to taste
6 ears of corn, cut off cob & scrape ears to get all the juice out

(When I don’t have fresh corn I use frozen corn or canned corn. This recipe will use about 3 -4 cans of corn.)

In a cast-iron skillet, fry the bacon. In a large bowl, combine flour, water, milk, salt, pepper and corn removed from cobs. Mix thoroughly. Remove bacon pieces and pour in the corn mixture. Chop the bacon into pieces and add back into the mixture. Constantly stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan will prevent sticking. It will be thick and creamy.
