If you need a side that comes together easily you will love this corn side dish mix of fresh corn, peppers, and potatoes! It’s SO good and so fresh tasting. Plus it has bits of bacon with every bite. The first time I made it for a bbq I only ended up serving half because the family and I kept eating it throughout the day. So feel free to double it!

Corn and Potato Recipe

Sautéed Corn with Potatoes and Peppers Corn: Side Dish Ingredients

  • Butter

  • Diced Red onion
  • Diced Petite Gold Potatoes
  • Diced green bell-pepper

This is also a dish I like to make when I want to use summers fresh corn! You can use frozen corn as well but definitely taste so much better with fresh corn! 

It’s also perfect for all those grilled dishes that you love too! Grilled Bbq Chicken, Cilantro Chicken, and even Chicken screwers! 

I can think this is hearty enough to eat on it’s own too!
