Creamy Confetti Corn with Bacon

Creamy Confetti Corn with Bacon: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

I love it when I find an easy vegetable dish to make for dinner. This dish took me probably 20 minutes from start to finish and that included chopping the onion and red pepper.

Speaking of chopping onions and peppers, have you noticed that grocery stores are selling diced bell peppers and onions in the freezer section. All you do is buy a frozen bag and scoop out what you need and leave the rest in the freezer for another time. I have not used these yet, I should check out how the price compares to buying them fresh. But I have started storing leftover over chopped onion or bell peppers in the freezer for recipes that do not call for a whole one like this recipe. I chopped the whole pepper and onion, measured out what I needed and put the rest in a resealable container and froze them to use later.

Creamy Confetti Corn with Bacon


  • 8 slices turkey bacon
  • 24 ounces frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion, red, white or yellow
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 green onions, chopped (green part only)


  1. In a large nonstick skillet cook the bacon until crispy. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel lined plate. If there is more than a thin coating of grease in the pan discard some of it.
  2. Add the frozen corn, diced onions and red pepper to the same skillet the bacon was cooked in. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and corn is heated through, about 6-8 minutes.
  3. Add in the cream cheese and 1 tablespoon milk. Stir until the cream cheese has melted and everything is well combined. If the mixture is to thick add the other tablespoon of milk and stir to combine.
  4. Stir in the sugar and black pepper. Add in the green onions and crumble the bacon into the corn mixture. Stir to combine.
