So we're somewhere where the AC is marginal so I wasn't wanting to heat up the kitchen with a big pot of boiling water. And we have no grill here. And I had a couple of ears of good corn. I fried up four strips of bacon (okay, maybe that was overkill), drained them on paper towels and crumbled. I then sauteed some onion in the bacon drippings with s&p. Cut the corn off the cob and, off heat, scraped the cobs into the drippings and dumped in the corn kernels. While the meat was resting, I brought the skillet up to high and got the drippings sizzling. Removed from the heat, sprinkled the bacon over the top and served. I may never cook corn any other way. My husband, the monosyllabic one, was describing it as the best thing he ever has eaten! I can't recommend this highly enough.
