Corn & Bacon Saute

53

I am thoroughly convinced that bacon makes everything better! ?It's a dish like this that makes me weep for people who can't or don't eat pork. I supposed you could use turkey bacon, but I just don't want to know about it. This recipe came to be during one of my "use it up" phases. And, it's a major winner!!! I've tagged this as a side dish but I could eat it as a main dish. It's just that filling and wonderful!

4
1/2 of a medium onion, chopped
6 slices bacon, diced
1 tsp. olive oil
16-oz. frozen corn
Seasonings: kosher salt, coarse black pepper, dried thyme
4-5 green onions, sliced
In a large skillet, saute the onion and bacon in the olive oil on medium-low until bacon starts to get crisp, about 10 minutes. After the bacon is crisp, remove the bacon-onion mixtue with a slotted spoon...
