Sauteed fresh corn

By Mayo Clinic staff  |  Serves 4

Dietitian's tip: Instead of bacon, this recipe uses prosciutto- a seasoned Italian ham- which has less fat and calories. If you prefer, substitute lean luncheon ham or smoked turkey for the proscuitto.

1 teaspoon olive oil
½ cup prosciutto, cut into strips
2 cups fresh corn kernels (cut from about 4 medium ears of corn) or frozen corn
1 green bell pepper, seeded, cored and diced
1 teaspoon minced garlic


  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the prosciutto and sauté until the meat is crisp, about 5 minutes. Stir in the corn, bell pepper
  • and garlic. Saute, stirring occasionally, until the kernels are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Serve immediately.
