I love going to the farmer’s market in the summer.  It’s one of my favorite things to do.  Over the years our farmer’s market has become less produce and more of everything else but it’s still nice to walk around, buy local, and see friends around town.   We have 4 different markets in town each on a different day so I like to check out several different ones each week.

One thing that everyone is always waiting on is corn.   People line up all the way down the street for fresh summer corn.  It’s one of those items that simply makes you feel like it’s summer.  There’s nothing quite like grilled corn on the cob.

However I always tend to over buy corn.  I’ll grab a half dozen but then we will only eat 3 or 4 ears.  I do this routinely so I always need to find a way to eat the remaining corn.  I have several casserole dishes that use corn but unfortunately most of them are full of cheese or cream or other fattening ingredients.  I’ve been looking for one that is a bit healthier and this one does.

Corn and Bacon Casserole may not sound like it’s healthy but in reality the bacon is the only ingredient that really adds fat.  Instead of cream or cheese this recipe uses plain Greek yogurt for creaminess.  It also adds in onions and garlic for additional flavor.

I was surprised by how flavorful this side dish is and how I never would have guessed that it isn’t full of fat.  It’s the perfect side dish to take with you to picnics and parties all summer long but you can also jazz it up and eat it at the holidays with frozen corn as well.  If you like corn make sure you give this dish a try!
