Something special happens when corn, cheese, and bacon come together especially when it happens and is still only 3 points plus. It’s a happy world when I can eat these three things and still not be scared to put on a bathing suit. This recipe is inspired by a classic Southern Corn and Bacon Pie, but to save calories I eliminated the crust and use skim milk instead of half and half. It still tastes rich and decadent with the bacon and the cheese and no one will ever believe it’s healthy. Serve up with a little salad and it makes a perfect meal. If you decide to add a crust, I would recommend one with cornmeal that would be delicious. Like a little spice? Replace the red pepper with a poblano.

1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Heat the bacon in a oven safe skillet until it is crispy. Save 1.5 tbsp of the bacon grease in the pan and discard the rest.

Add the onion and red pepper and cook for about 8 minutes until the onion begins to be translucent.

4

Add the corn and cook until cooked just through, about 3 minutes.

5

Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, and milk. Stir in the salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, chives, and cheese.

6

Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and cook for about 15 minutes on medium-low until the egg is almost set completely.

7

Place the skillet in the oven and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes until the top is cooked through and the top gets crispy.

When I calculated the nutritional values you provide on Weight Watchers it came out to 5 freestyle points. I was a bit disappointed, but this recipe is so yummy that it was worth the 2 extra points.

Thank you I will be making it again

Hi Luba! So glad you enjoyed it!! For the WW points, I would recommend using the recipe calculator to get the most accurate points value since it takes into account zero point foods like the eggs and corn in this recipe. Using the nutritional calculator you will get higher values since it doesn't count those foods as zero. Hope that helps!

This was excellent! It was very moist too. I loved the burnt corn bits at the bottom. I used a cast iron skillet, btw.

I have been making this recipe for several years especially when fresh corn is in season. It is one of my favorites. I cut it into 6 servings instead of 8 and increases the smart points to 5. Anyone who loves bacon and fresh corn should give it a try.
