Cajun Corn and Bacon Maque Choux aka Ugly Corn


(Public for All)

A twist on a thanksgiving side -- if you're looking for something that your friends and family haven't had yet, try this out.


  • 6 ears corn, husked and cleaned
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large fresh tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • salt to taste
  • cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 8 strips crisply cooked bacon, crumbled


Cut corn off the cobs by thinly slicing across the tops of the kernels; place in a medium bowl. Cut across the kernels again to release milk from the corn, add milk to bowl. Set aside.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and green pepper, cook until onion is transparent, about 5 to 8 minutes. Combine corn, tomatoes, and milk with the onion mixture. Reduce heat to medium low, and cook 20 minutes longer, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Do not boil. Season with salt and cayenne pepper. Lower heat, cover skillet, and cook 5 to 10 minutes longer. Stir in green onions and bacon. Remove from heat and serve.
