Fried Corn Paula Deen Style
20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)
5 ingredients

There are lots of good fried corn recipes on the Zaar but there is NO bacon in this dish. It uses butter instead. I also thought the basil added was a great touch. I got this recipe from her magazine. Quick and easy. I bet you can use frozen corn too.
