  • 2 cups sweet corn kernels canned or frozen/thawed is fine
  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 - 1 cup cooked/crumbled bacon pictured is 1/2


  • Combine muffin mix, corn kernels, eggs, and whipping cream in a bowl and blend with a stick blender (or use your upright blender) until ingredients are mixed, but still lumpy.
  • Stir in crumbled bacon, and pour batter into a greased cast iron skillet.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean and the corn bread is getting toasty and browned.  If you want a little extra browning, turn on the broiler for the last two minutes.  But watch closely!
