Fall is setting in, and my mind is going over all the wonderful foods I’ve made over the summer, and this Bacon Wrapped Corn on The Cob is sticking to my memory. That crisp bacon wrapped around a sweet ear of corn, hot off the grill, oh my! On Saturday’s we run down to our local farmers market to buy of some of their wonderful and tasty fresh fruits and vegetables. I love spending my morning hanging around and checking out what everyone has to offer. I’m a big fan of supporting your local farmers, not only does it keep your farmers going throughout the year, but it supports your town as well. If you can’t grow it yourself, just stop in at your local farmer’s market right down the road, and show them some support. If you’re not lucky enough to be able to buy your veggies fresh, always double check the labeling to make sure it’s fresh as possible.
This Bacon Wrapped Corn on The Cob was the main attraction for dinner that night. The smell of the bacon cooking with the corn on the grill was amazing. It could be smell down the hill at the neighbor’s house, thank goodness I made extras in case we had someone just popping in, to just say hello! Normally when I make corn on the cob I need to make at least one dozen ears, because this family can really eat up on some delicious Bacon Wrapped Corn on The Cob.
This Bacon Wrapped Corn on The Cob can be cooked on the grill or in the oven so you can enjoy it all year long. It makes a wonderful side dish in any meal you’re serving and I suggest making, they will disappear quickly.
- 6 ears – Sweet Corn*
- 12 strips – Bacon**
- 6 pieces – Tin Foil – for wrapping
- Husk and remove all the silk from corn.
- Wrap each ear of corn with 2 slices of bacon, then wrap in tinfoil.
- Grill or bake (350 degrees for oven), turning every 5 minutes until you hear the bacon sizzling.
- Check to see if bacon is crispy, if so then remove the tinfoil and serve, if not then cook until bacon is desired crispness.
- If using the oven, remove tinfoil after 15 mins and bake until bacon is nice and crispy.
*Buy local and support your area farmer’s market when possible. The best corn comes from down the road. **I prefer low sodium bacon, but you can use regular or the fake stuff if you prefer.
This Bacon Wrapped Corn on The Cob is amazing and will go well with some tasty homemade baked beans, and my delicious Stuffed Grilled Pork Chops, or some wonderful grilled chicken or fish. It doesn’t really matter what you fix to go with this simple lip smacking bacon corn (as the grandchildren call it), just as long as you make extras, you’ll be good to go! I love adding some extra hot pepper sauce on top of mine to enhance that delicious bacon and sweet corn flavor, to give it an extra kick. You just can’t go wrong with this Bacon Wrapped Corn on The Cob.
