2312f2fwkvo4sh

What a great time to try out this creamy corn and bacon dip!  Silver Queen and other varieties of tender, succulent, early June corn make it a very toothsome experience…or if it is the dead of winter, feel free to utilize frozen creamed corn or well-drained canned niblets.

  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 8 ounces of sour cream
  • 1/2 cup of homemade mayonnaise
  • 3 large green onions, sliced thinly
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups of corn, freshly grated off the cob
  • 1/4 stick of butter
  • 1 dozen strips of smoked bacon, cooked and crumbled

Combine first three ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside.  In a microwave-proof pan, combine onions, garlic, pepper, corn, and butter.  Cover and microwave on high for three minutes.  Stir in cream cheese mixture, add bacon, and microwave for two minutes.  Remove and mix well.  Cover and cook for an additional minute or two until heated through.  Great with corn chips!
