  • 6-8 ears of fresh corn (sweet corn is best)
  • 1 tablespoon bacon drippings (not substitutions)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • Shuck and silk your corn. Make sure to remove all of the silks and then with a sharp knife cut the corn off into a bowl. Once the kernels are all cut off, take your knife and scrape down the cob to remove any juice that is left in it. This is what makes the corn creamy, so don't skip this step.
  • In a skillet heat together the bacon drippings and the butter. Cook some bacon is you don't have drippings. Use the bacon for another recipe or eat it or save your bacon drippings from breakfast. You cannot leave the bacon drippings out of this though. It just won't be fried corn if you do.
  • Add the corn and let it cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes. While the corn is cooking, mix the cornstarch and the 1/2 cup cold milk until smooth, set aside.
  • When the corn is done, pour the cornstarch mixture into the corn and bring it up to a bubble. Stir and cook just until it thickens. Add the salt and pepper and stir again and serve.
