This is good. The reason I am posting is the corn cutter Paula uses in the video. I bought one on Amazon. It is made by The Lee MFG CO. out of Dallas. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fried corn is an enjoyable southern dish. I loved the simple ingredients that added that particular charm that the cooks in the south seem keep. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family LOVES this recipe. I have made it for Thanksgiving two years in a row. It is always a hit and smells divine when making it. Thank you, Paula. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family and guests absolutely loved this recipe! I did saute a chopped onion in the bacon drippings first and added about a 1/2 cup of cream and let it simmer down because even though I extracted the milk from the corn by using the back of the knife, it still didn't have that creaminess I was looking for. It came out amazing and difinitely worth the effort! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We loved this! I put in twice as much butter and sweated 1 medium onion and garlic before adding the corn. At the end I added about 3/4 c milk and a little corn starch to thicken and about 1/4-1/2 t nutmeg for a little balance. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Great recipe... it was, however, the dead of winter in OHIO and I substituted Shoepeg Picsweet frozen corn (2-cups cooked in microwave for 4 minutes and then food processed 1 cup of it before adding to the butter and bacon grease mixture... added a few diced green onion tops, garlic salt, cracked pepper, milk and honey to taste and OMG... a great side dish was to be had...
