This simple combination of corn, mushrooms and bacon goes with everything from burgers to lightly scrambled eggs and toast.

Prep: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes
  • 2 slices
  • 1/2 cup
    shallots, thinly sliced
  • 3 cups
    mixed mushrooms, sliced, such as oyster, shiitake and/or baby bella
  • 4 ears
    corn, kernels cut from cob (see Tip)
  • 1/4 cup
  • 1/4 teaspoon
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    freshly ground pepper
  1. Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and chop.
  2. Discard all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat from the pan. Add shallots and cook, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring, until they begin to release their juices, about 3 minutes more. Add corn kernels and water and cook until the corn is tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in chopped bacon and season with salt and pepper.



Tip: To remove kernels, stand a cob on its stem end in a bowl and slice them off with a sharp, thin-bladed knife.
