Fried Corn

Diana Rattray
This easy fried corn is made with fresh corn kernels, butter, optional sugar, and seasonings. A little bacon grease can be added for more flavor.

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 2 cups fresh corn kernels, about 6 ears
  • 2 tablespoons butter, or use part bacon drippings
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • sugar, optional


In a heavy skillet, heat butter over medium-low heat until foamy. Add the fresh corn kernels; cook for 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Lower heat if necessary to keep butter from burning. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning, and add about 1 teaspoon of sugar if desired. Serves 4.
