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


    • 2 slices bacon
    • ½ cup thinly sliced shallots
    • 3 cups sliced mixed mushrooms, such as oyster, shiitake and/or baby bella
    • 4 ears corn, kernels cut from cob (see Tip)
    • ¼ cup water
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ 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.
