Corn Side Dishes

Corn side dishes are some of the best sides to go with so many meals! I paired some of my favorite ingredients to this corn recipe. I love the sweet and savory flavor combination! You get a hint of pure maple with each bite of corn, vegetables and bacon pieces. The whole family is going to love this one. My boys enjoy the sweetness from the maple syrup and corn along with the salty crunchy bacon pieces. Our 2 year old likes to eat the bright peppers first. A little something for everyone. Enjoy!

What To Serve with Corn Dishes

  1. Barbecued anything: chicken, pork, beef, you name it. This includes all barbecue-related foods, including ribs, Buffalo wings, and Sloppy Joes.
  2. Fried chicken. Probably the most classic way to eat corn on the cob is with fried chicken, cole slaw, and sliced ripe tomatoes, with huge glasses of iced tea and slices of chilled cantaloupe (muskmelon) or watermelon for dessert. Yum!
  3. Hamburgers. Think retro cookout, with Dad in his apron at the charcoal grill.

    The maple syrup is such a good idea. That just might be the one thing I need to get my little guy into corn
