The richness of bacon and the bite of scallions complement the sweetness of corn kernels in this hearty side dish.

Really easy, really good! Added 2 mini sweet peppers (one red, one orange for color contrast) and instead of salt/pepper, I sprinkled a couple of shakes of Penzey's Fox Point Seasoning (salt, shallots, chives, garlic, onion and green peppercorns. Delish!

Made with frozen corn and thick cut applewood smoked bacon. My husband licked his plate!

meant to say corn, not rice!

This is so easy and good! Instead of scallions, I added 1 chopped up zucchini and 1 leek after cooking the bacon and sauteed for a few min before adding the rice. I also used frozen precooked rice from trader joe's and it cooked up just perfectly in the time called for in the recipe!

Made this dish with fresh corn removed from the cob. It was amazing! It even tasted good the next day as leftovers.

This is one of my favorite salads. It counts as a salad, right?

I tried this recipe with canned corn and it was very good, but I'm sure it would be even better with fresh corn of course! And I definitely used more then just a *pinch* of red pepper flakes!

Would you use canned corn for this or cut it off the cob?
