  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium heat, stirring until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon on a paper towel-lined plate, leaving the grease in the skillet. Stir the onion and bell pepper into the skillet, and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the corn, pimentos, and reserved bacon. Cook and stir until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper before serving.

This has always been one of our favorites, especially when the corn is fresh. I use red pepper instead of green and add alittle garlic to the saute. Yummy!

I doubled the recipe to use as a side dish for 9 people - definitely enough! I found the end result to be a bit greasy, next time I'll dump 1/2 the bacon grease and leave just enough to coat the pan. I would also like to add more flavor to this dish. Some of the versions I read called for Seasoning Salt. I added Lawry's Seasoned Salt in addition to salt and pepper, but next time I'll go a little heavier. Overall - not my all time favorite, but a good dish to accompany corned beef and cabbage (see slow cooker recipe for an easy meal!)

I like this better with red pepper. I use a whole large red pepper. Really good. Even my kids like it. Could be because it has bacon........;)

This recipe was easy to make although a bit too greasy. It was very tastey although next time I will remove the bacon grease from the pan before finishing the recipe.

My husband has been making this for years. He uses red onion, a chopped jalapeno, and a dash of a secret ingredient (famous in Lincoln, NE) Yummy!

I made this for a group of friends as a topping for tacos, and it was everyone's favorite!

The flavor was wonderful. I felt the bacon took away nutritional value, but it as really very tastey.
