Knock your socks off - Corn and Bacon Casserole

A girl should be two things, classy & fabulous!

Things that make a girl "fabulous" at 22 weeks pregnant :

1. Remembering to turn the coffee pot on every night.
2. Shaving her legs everyday.
3. Spending 45 minutes on the Elliptical Machine.
4. Making the above Corn and Bacon Casserole...and not eating it all before it made it to the Thanksgiving Feast! SCORE

Things that make a girl "classy" at 22 weeks pregnant :

1. Eating the Bacon one strip at a time and chewing with her mouth closed.
2. Letting the bacon cool down before putting it into her belly.
3. Sharing the bacon with her 3 year old.
4. Contemplating...sharing with her husband.
5. Saying excuse me after the 6th piece of bacon...and cooking more to make sure the casserole did not suffer.

Delightfully borrowed from The Slow Roasted Italian
{Full Printable Recipe}

6 bacon strips
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
3-1/2 cups frozen whole kernel corn
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


Preheat oven to 350°.

In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoon of drippings. Crumble bacon then set aside.

Saute onion in drippings until fairly tender. Add flour, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until bubbly.  Cook and stir 1 minute more.

Remove from heat and stir in sour cream. Add the corn, parsley and half of the bacon; mix well. Pour into a medium sized baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining bacon. Bake, uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.

It's all about OKLAHOMA and hicks like BRAD PITT and
And you can be certain, these two are going to be highly featured in our movie,
NEITHER, can act.
NEITHER have class.
NEITHER had anything at all to offer but " PITY LTD".
Hey " ASSHOLES" does it FEEL?
We'll ask GE.

This looks incredible! :)

By the way - a 22-week bun in the oven is likely the best excuse you're ever going to have to snarf bacon (classily snarfing, naturellment), so go with it, lady! ;)

Taste and Tell said...

You are definitely more fabulous and classy than I am! This sounds fabulous - adding it to my "must make" list!!

Fashion Meets Food said...

Lizzy said...

Oooh, yeah, you are CLASSY! I just knew you were :) This casserole is fabulous and super classy as well. It may make our Christmas table if not before. I love to season with bacon, too!

Pam said...

You are killing me! This one is truly drool worthy.

It's good to be classy and fabulous!

Beastie said...

Holly said...

Jenn- this looks absolutely scrumptious! Something I know my family would love! Bookmarked.

Mary said...

This looks SO good! It called to me when Donna posted it before Thanksgiving and now I'm thinking that I really NEED to make it sooner than later.

Treat and Trick said...

Great combo and sounds fabulous!

Barbara said...

Killer recipe, Jenn!!
And if anyone deserves all the bacon she wants, it's you at 22 weeks!
Shave your legs every day? Can you even SEE your legs? :)

Mary said...

This is really a fantastic recipe. It looks wonderful on your holiday plate and who can resist the combination of bacon, corn and sour cream? Not me! I hope you had a great holiday and enjoy the weekend ahead. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Angie's Recipes said...

A super comforting caserole! Love that click of bacon ;-) very tempting.

Jenn said...

Isn't it a law that all pregnant woman can eat at least 6 pieces of bacon and not feel guilty about it? :) If it helps, I do that and I don't even have the excuse of being pregnant! lol And the casserole..well, I am very impressed you didn't eat it all.. I don't think I could have made that same claim. Looks amazing!

Julie said...

I need this casserole, and I don't think I'll be sharing, classy or not :)

Hearty Appletite said...

That's makes me hungry and I'm NOT 22 weeks pregnant!

Siggy Spice said...

Oh. My. Holy. Bacon. (((drool))) Pinning this now, and probably making out with this in the very near future!

Monet said...

As always, funny and delicious! I'm about to start dinner so this post is making me especially hungry (and grateful I'll be eating soon!) I hope you are having a restful weekend!

This looks SO good. I love ordering a wedge salad (with blue cheese dressing bacon) when I pretend to diet. Feels virtuous...yet awesome.
