Corn Sauté with Canadian Bacon, Potatoes & Peppers


Canadian bacon and potatoes make this corn sauté hearty enough to stand alone as a light main course, but it also makes a wonderful side dish or a zesty bed for grilled or roasted meat or fish.

What you will need

2 Tbs. unsalted butter

2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup small-diced Canadian bacon (3 oz.)

1 cup small-diced red onion (from about a 6-oz. onion)

1 cup small-diced red potato (from about a 5-oz. potato)

1/2 cup small-diced green bell pepper (from three-quarters of a 3-oz. pepper)

1 tsp. kosher salt; more to taste

2 slightly heaping cups fresh corn kernels (from about 4 medium ears)

2 tsp. minced garlic (2 medium cloves)

2 Tbs. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

2 Tbs. thinly sliced fresh chives

1/2 tsp. green Tabasco; more to taste

Freshly ground black pepper

One-half lemon
