Candied Corn Medley

Delicious Candied Corn Medley - a great combination of potatoes, carrots, corn and bacon! { lilluna.com }

Sometimes there is nothing better than finding a new and delicious recipe that the whole family loves. Wouldn’t you agree?

Last month, I tried a recipe from Taste of Home thinking that it would be pretty good. Little did I know that it would be phenomenal. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out but had tons of ingredients we already loved – like potatoes, carrots, corn, bacon. It also had a “secret ingredient” of maple syrup which made we question how much we’d like it, but the sweet ingredient made it taste even better! I’m happy to report that this recipe is a new favorite, and I’m SO glad we gave it a try. It’s not a soup, and it’s not really a “main dish” type recipe but the only thing I can compare it to is a KFC Bowl. Have you had one before? They’re delicious and this recipe reminded me of them. 😉

We ended up topping off this recipe with some sour cream and cheese and it was amazing. Other than the KFC Bowl, this dish reminded me of the most delicious Baked Potato you’d ever eaten. Can I rave about it enough?! If you like all these yummy veggies and love a little bit of sweet with sour cream and cheese, then you’ll agree with us that this is an amazing recipe. 🙂

Taste of Home called this Candied Corn Medley, and I think it fits because it’s definitely a medley of some great ingredients that I know you’ll enjoy all thrown together!!

    My boyfriend is a HUGE fan of those “bowls” you can get at KFC, so no doubt he’ll love this! It’s going on my meal planner now! 🙂
