I made this summer veggie dish last night with grilled fish and it was delicious! There is something about cooking the fresh corn and the rest of the veggies in the bacon grease that makes it so good. It would be a great side dish with any meat or fish :)


4 thick-cut pieces of bacon, chopped

4 ears fresh corn, cut from the cob        

1 tablespoon sugar

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup frozen lima beans, thawed

1 cup of fresh tomato, chopped

1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper

In a black skillet, cook the chopped bacon, stirring often until it is nice and crispy.  Remove the bacon from the skillet with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels.  Take out about 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease out of the skillet and leave the rest.  Now add the corn and sugar and saute’ it for about 6 -8 minutes on medium high in the bacon grease.   Add the garlic and the next 3 ingredients and then saute’ for 3 or 4 more minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in the crispy bacon.  This makes a great side dish to fish or chicken.
