4 oz bacon chopped (about 3/4 c or 4 thick slices)

2 T butter

1 lb frozen corn kernels (I bought the fire roasted corn at Trader Joe’s)

4 oz cream cheese

1 T white miso

2 T mayonnaise

1 c shredded mozzarella cheese (the prepackaged shredded cheap kind)

Scallions and hot sauce for garnish


Heat oven to 450.

Place bacon in a cold cast iron skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring often, until bacon is crispy-about 10 minutes.

Pour off most of the bacon grease and save it for your dog’s food. Add butter to skillet. When it sizzles add the corn and toss to coat. Cook for 2-3 minutes to heat the corn. Add the cream cheese and miso and use the back of the spoon to smush it all until it melts and blends with the corn. Stir in the mayo and toss until the mixture is creamy and smooth.

Spoon corn into a baking dish or leave it in the cast iron skillet as long as it is not too big. Corn mixture should be shallow. Not more than a 1″ layer. Sprinkle with mozzarella and bake until brown and bubbly-about 5-7 minutes.

Serve with forks and hot sauce. Sprinkle with scallions if desired. Have lots of cold beer to go with!
