    If your menu includes Dutch's Beans, use the bacon grease from the beans to make this side as well. Cutting the corn from the cob is a bit of a pain, so in a pinch you can use frozen (thawed) corn, but fresh is best! Usually during corn season I go to the farm down the road here and buy tons of corn. I take them home and cut them off the cob and freeze them in gallon freezer bags, so I have fresh corn anytime of year (especially in the winter... corn chowder!)

    I have made that a few times and it is really good. My corn is about 3 inches tall right now but can't wait till its ready to pick. I bet the fried corn would be good added to some cornbread batter as well, I'll have to try that.

    Fried(or smoked) Corn Salad

    2 cups fresh corn(off the cob). Frozen or canned will work also.
    1/2 cup diced red onion
    1/2 cup chopped green onion

    1 cup grated cheddar cheese
    1/2 cup grated parm cheese
    1 cup mayo

    Brown corn in a little butter or olive oil(or smoke). Let cool. Combine with all other ingredients except of Frito's. Crush Frito's fine while still in sealed bag. Mix in Frito's just before serving. Salt and pepper to taste.

    This is a great summer time pot luck dish.

    That does sound tasty! Kind of a creamed corn with a bacon kick?

    Seboke, Some bacon bits would really set that off. Good call!
