Michigan Sweet Corn O'Brien
Serves 10
O'Brien in anyone's culinary vocabulary, refers to a garnishment of peppers and onions. Most famously linked with potatoes (thus its Irish nick-name) this corn version has substituted corn in place of potatoes and added the sweet, smoked bacon to the mix as well. Colorful and delicious, it's a welcome addition to any dinner table.
