This month on the cover of the Food Network Magazine, they feature grilled corn! There are lots of different options but one stood out in particular… the bacon wrapped corn! Mmmm.. sweet corn with salty, crispy bacon… a match made in heaven as far as I’m concerned!!
While they have a photo, they don’t provide much in the way of directions (just a sentence or 2) and, as simple as it seems, the bacon wants to unwrap itself from the corn or not crisp up even after grilling for an extended time. I did play around with it and the end result was outstanding!
This Bacon Wrapped Corn takes corn on the cob to a whole new level! It can be grilled or baked in the oven.This is something I can’t wait to play with more. I have tried a jalapeño cheese grilled corn (with some issues) so I am still working on it.. but the addition of the grill makes the corn so darn delicious!
Items you’ll need for this recipe:
* Corn on the Cob * Tin Foil * Bacon *
Grilled Bacon Wrapped Corn
- Corn on the cob
- 2 slices of bacon per ear of corn
- Tin foil
- Husk each ear of corn. Wrap the bacon around each corn ensuring it overlaps. You will need two slices per ear of corn because the bacon shrinks. Sprinkle with pepper.
- Place each bacon wrapped corn on a piece of tinfoil and twist the ends.
- Grill on medium-high for about 20 minutes turning every 5 minutes. Remove from grill and open each package. The bacon will now be secured to the corn.
- Place bacon wrapped corn directly on the grill for a couple of minutes to crisp the bacon watching carefully so it doesn't burn. Serve hot.

can this be done in the oven? if yes then what temp and how long?
I haven’t tried it that way but I’m sure that would work just fine. Please let us know how it works for you if you do try it!
can you substitute the grill for the oven and if so what temp and how long would you cook it for??
Tried it, didnt work. quite dissapointing
Which part did you have trouble with? I tried a few methods that didn’t work but the one above worked perfectly for me. I’d love to help you figure out how to get it working for you because it’s YUMMY!! <3
we tried it and it was wonderful, my only complaint was the bacon wasnt super crispy, but we didnt put it on the grill without the foil. We looked at another web site that just relied on cooking it in the foil the whole time. the corn wasnt dry at all, which sometimes does get dried out cooking on the grill.
Don’t wrap it in foil. That was your mistake. Soak the corn in water for about a half hour then wrap it in bacon. Secure it with water soaked cotton cord then grill it. The corn will be tender and the bacon crisp.
