This week’s recipe is from Bruce and Eric Bromberg, executive chefs at Blue Ribbon restaurants.
Griddled Corn & Bacon
Serves 4 to 6
8 Cobs of corn
1 pound of bacon, cut into lardons
Boil corn until fully cooked, and then shock the corn in cold water. Using a knife, remove the kernels from the corn. In a large cast iron skillet over medium heat, griddle your bacon until desired crispness. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon and rest on plate with paper towel to absorb excess fat. Pour off the excess fat in the pan, reserving two tablespoons rendered bacon fat to cook the corn. Add the corn to the bacon fat and sauté over medium heat until heated through, about one minute. Toss with bacon and serve warm.
