Fresh Corn Sauté

I am usually not one to mess with fresh corn, because I love it just how it is, but the thyme in this recipe makes it very tasty!

Fresh Corn Sauté

1 bacon slice
(recipe calls for "Applewood smoked", but I think regular is fine)
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
2 cups fresh corn kernels
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1. Cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon slice from pan; crumble.

2. Add onion and bell pepper to drippings in pan; sauté 5 minutes. Add corn and next 3 ingredients; sauté 4 minutes or until tender. Stir in crumbled bacon.

Looks YUM!

I DO have one quibble with the recipe though... who would ever actually cook a single piece of bacon? Without like snarfing it up and having to cook a second one? Now, if the recipe read something like, "Cook a few slices of bacon, making sure to keep ONE piece for the recipe...", I'd find it a little more believable! ;)
