  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Reserve 1 tablespoon of drippings. Drain bacon, chop, and set aside.
  2. Heat the bacon drippings in the skillet over medium heat. Saute the zucchini, corn, and onion until tender but still crisp, about 10 minutes. Season with pepper. Spoon vegetables into a bowl, and sprinkle with chopped bacon and shredded cheese.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You may substitute frozen corn for the fresh corn, if desired.

I really loved this recipe! After I made it, it looked like A LOT and figured I'd be eating leftovers for a week.... not so, the bowl was empty that very night. I ended up using frozen corn bec...

This was excellent fresh cooked, but did not taste as good reheated since the zucchini tends to get overcooked and watery when microwaved. Those who thought it mushy to begin with probably overc...

Delicious and simple!! I used frozen corn and fresh zucchini and it worked really well. I added diced red peppers and about a teaspoon of butter to the bacon drippings for a little added flavo...

Super easy and very refreshing. I used canned corn, drained, and it turned out great. For a little added crunch I added some french fried onions when served.

Really quite tasty! The bacon lends a nice taste throughout the veggies. I used frozen corn and broccoli and fresh onion. I will make this again.
