I made this today and it’s a 10! I thought I had Pernod on hand and didn’t, so I used 11/2 tsp of fennel seed and added it with the onions so it would release it’s aroma. Lastly we did add cayenne pepper for a light kick. I used Hempler brand smoked bacon and it did not yield fat to a half a cup as one comment was concerned about. I may cut back on potatoes next time. The flavor overall is wonderful.
I think they might mean 1 can cream corn and 1 can whole kernel corn. .Most people would reduce fat to just what is needed to cook the onions.I think the rest sounds fine.
Since there are other typos in this recipe I'm concerned about using a half pound of bacon because it produces 1/2 cup of bacon fat which doesn't get poured off. A half a cup of bacon fat would be disgusting with so few servings.
I believe it's supposed to be one can of creamed corn, one can of regular, drained corn.
