2. Cook the bacon in a large cast iron skillet until crisp.  Remove to paper towels to drain; crumble.  Remove all but ¼ cup of the bacon drippings from the skillet.

3. Add the corn, butter, sugar, salt and pepper to the skillet.  Cook over medium heat for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.

4. Spoon mixture into a serving dish and top with the crumbled bacon.
