Seasoned Corn with Bacon

Here is a fast way to spice up a side dish! The herbs intensify the flavor, and as we all know... BACON MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER, right?!! Of coarse right! In this case, I sliced up some turkey bacon and saved myself some serious fat, 65% less to be precise. And I submit that it was still delicious! (Admittedly, turkey bacon is good in a different way- whole different flavor, but I like it.)
Seasoned Corn with Bacon
2 bacon strips, diced
1-2/3 cups frozen corn, thawed
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
1/8 teaspoon dried basil

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 1/2 teaspoon drippings.
Saute the corn, onion, garlic powder, lemon-pepper and basil in reserved drippings until corn is tender. Stir in bacon. Yield: 2 servings.
