Step by Step Method

Step 1

Get out a large cast iron skillet and heat it on medium on the stove top. Add the chopped bacon and cook it. Stir often until the bacon is crisp, about 8 minutes.

Step 2

Drain the bacon, keeping the skillet drippings.

Step 3

Turn the heat up to medium high; adding the fresh corn and the Squash to the drippings in the pan. Cook for 2 minutes or until everything is lightly charred and Al dente.

Step 4

Put into a large bowl. Let it all cool for about 10 minutes.

Step 5

Put the onions, eggs, cornmeal, pepper, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the cooked bacon into the bowl. Mix everything together. Let it sit for 5 minutes, stirring every so often. Set it aside.

Step 6

Next you need to make the yogurt mixture. Get out a small bowl and add the yogurt, maple syrup, turmeric, and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Mix it together and set it aside.

Step 7

Place the skillet on medium heat and drop the batter into the pan. Use 1/4 cup fulls. Flatten a bit with your spatula. Let them get brown and firm on each side. Approximately 2 minutes per side.

Step 8

Remove from the skillet and serve with the yogurt mixture.

With all the holiday prep and “sinful” options, this was a good alternative. We enjoyed these corn cakes and we loved the crunchy edges. Used frozen corn instead of fresh and upped the scallions. I bet that cilantro or parsley would be also a good addition to add to these babies. To hold the corn cakes together, wound up having to double the cornmeal and eggs. Thank you, WAIGEN, for sharing. Made it “For your Consideration” tag game.
