Maple Bacon Vegetable Corn Recipe

This Maple Bacon Vegetable Corn Recipe is the perfect side to any main dish!

Maple Bacon Vegetable Corn Recipe

I am thrilled to be partnering with Progresso today to bring you a perfectly simple side dish that pairs nicely with their Chicken Rice with Vegetable Soup. My family loves to have soup for lunch or dinner all year long. Such a simple and satisfying meal.

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.
