  • 3 cups (3/4 lb) extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 (16 oz) can whole kernel corn
  • 2 (16 oz) cans whole tomatoes, juice reserved
  • 2 cups onions, chopped
  • 12 oz bacon, chopped
  • dried thyme
  • 4 to 6 baking potatoes, baked
  • butter, to garnish potatoes


Sauté the bacon and onions in a heavy pot until the bacon is crisp and the onion is translucent. Drain off the fat. Drain the tomato juice into the pot; squish the tomatoes through your fingers into the pot. Add the corn, and thyme, salt and pepper to taste, and simmer the mixture for 10 to 15 minutes or until desired thickness. Add the cheese and stir until melted. Spoon the Ring Tum Ditty over the halved potatoes with butter and wait for the complements.

easy and yet eve

easy and yet everyone complimented me like it was a special and intensive recipe. I would repeat this in a heart beat and even make minis for apps or for finger food snacks at a party.
