Sour cream, fresh corn kernels and zucchini, cheese and bacon… need I say more?
The perfect and tastiest side dish to steaks, pork, chicken, shrimp, just about anything on the grill — once you try this velvety side dish, it will easily become your new favourite!

I discovered this at a friends place a couple of years ago and then decided to add my own little additions which include the bacon and cilantro (I love bacon and I love cilantro on pretty much everything!).
Feel free to be adventurous and add whatever toppings or additions you fancy, although I think this may just be the recipe you will most likely stick with.  The only problem with this side dish is waiting for the BBQ to finish before you devour it all!

  1. I’d make apple cakes and pork schnitzel with adill sauce. they’re two of my favourite recipes which both use sour cream.

  2. I love it on baked potatoes and on tacos, there is many uses for sour cream that I like especially my coleslaw dressing

  3. Beef stroganoff and a wonderful rhubarb cake – I have a recipe to use sour cream in it vs using oil, it makes it moist and wonderful!

  4. I have a recipe for a sour cream coffee cake that I love. I’d definitely be making that if I win (or even if I don’t!)
