Corn Maque Choux
Maque Choux [MOCK shoo] is Cajun-style creamed corn. Potatoes aren’t traditionally in it, but they taste so good they should be! Together with sweet corn, cream, and bacon — what’s not to like? Every once in a while you need to splurge.
Cook bacon in a nonstick skillet over medium-high until crisp. Add potatoes, onion, and bell pepper; cook 5 minutes, stirring often.
Stir in broth and sugar; cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, 5–8 minutes.
Add cream; simmer, uncovered, until reduced and thickened, 2–3 minutes. Stir in corn, scallions, and basil; season with salt, pepper, and Tabasco.
