Birds Eye - Steam Fresh Innovation

This is a #sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Birds Eye® . The opinions and text are all mine!
   Summer is almost here and for us that means barbecues, get together and special birthday's. We love to entertain and finding different recipes that are healthy, easy and delicious can be challenging. I needed something fresh to make and with that in mind I headed over to Meijer.


I always enjoy shopping at Meijers, they have great prices and you can always purchase more than groceries when you shop. I am so busy that I really love a one stop shopping opportunity. I was in the freezer aisle and I can't believe all of the new products by Birds Eye®. There are items for sides and even entrees. I was pretty excited because as a working mom I love something that cooks up quick and easy but also disappears from the plates.

When I saw that one of the new items was Barbecue sweet corn I knew I had to give it a try. My family loves sweet corn and my husband's favorite condiment is barbecue sauce so this combo was made for our family! Birds Eye® also has a really great site full of recipes and I have already pinned a few for next week's menu.

I saw that there was a recipe for Smoky Corn and Onion Saute and thought I would give it a try but do a spin and use the new Barbecue Sweet Corn.


4 Slices of bacon
1 sweet onion, chopped
2 cloves, garlic, chopped
1 bag (12 oz) bag of Birds Eye Steamfressh Barbecue Sweet Corn
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp. chopped thyme, rosemary and/or sage ( I didn't use sage)
1. Cook Bacon in a nonstick skillet until crisp. Remove from pan with slotted spoon: reserve bacon.
2. In same skillet over medium-high heat in bacon drippings cook onion, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until softened and golden brown.
3. Stir in hot prepared Barbecue Sweet corn, pepper and thyme. Sprinkle with Bacon.

This recipe will only take 15 minutes and the corn cooks up perfectly in the bag so multitasking is a breeze!

This was honestly a really easy dish and my family really enjoyed it. It is a challenge to get my little girls to eat anything and they cleaned their plates. My husband loved this so much he said he could eat this every day and can't wait till I make this again.

  I wanted to share the love so leave me a comment below with your own idea on how you would incorporate the new Steamfresh® Flavor Full sides into your own meals.
