Fabulous Friday from GoToni–Grilled Corn Appetizer Recipe

I am a food geek!  This time of year I love visiting farmer’s markets and getting the best produce.  But, using the produce before it wilts in the bottom of my fridge can be a challenge. Knowing I had two years of corn about to make a run for the border, I found this recipe on www.foodnetwork.com.  I love chef Anne Burrell and haven’t had a bad experience with any of her recipes.  I think this recipe is delicious whether you’re in fabulous sunny Tampa, Florida or places farther away.

Grilled Corn, Bacon and Chile Crostini

Recipe courtesy Anne Burrell for Food Network Magazine

Prep Time: 30 min

Cook Time: 18 min

Level: Easy

Serves: 6 servings



Preheat a grill to medium. Lightly brush the corn with olive oil and season with salt. Grill, turning occasionally, until the corn is charred on all sides and the kernels are soft, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove and set aside until cool, then cut the kernels off the cobs.

Drizzle a saute pan with olive oil; add the bacon and bring to medium heat. When the bacon is browned and crispy, add the chiles and saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the corn kernels and toss to combine. Season with salt and stir in the vinegar. Toss in the scallions and remove from the heat.

Toast the baguette slices on the grill until lightly charred. Remove the toasts and rub with the garlic. Drizzle with olive oil and top with the corn-bacon mixture. Call yourself a superstar!
