This 4th of July, make sure you have the best menu possible with this amazing recipe(s) for corn on the cob, with a twist! This dish will be the talk of the party, I promise. Everything is better with bacon, right? Right.
Here are two creative ways to make an ordinary side dish even more delicious:
Bacon Wrapped Corn on the Cob
- Ears of corn, husked
- Olive oil spray
- Bacon strips
- Aluminum foil
Take your ear of corn, and spritz a little bit of olive oil spray on it, so the ingredients will stick to the corn. Take your favorite type of bacon – turkey bacon, thicker, thinner – whatever you want.
Wrap the corn with each strip, most will go around twice.
Wrap it all up super tight in tinfoil and grill on high heat – 10 minutes on each side, then 40 minutes on low heat
For vegetarians – try making Brie cheese corn. It’s so easy! Just take some brie cheese and smear it on the corn like butter. Coat it entirely. Tip – if your cheese is room temperature, it will be easier to spread. Wrap it in tin foil, and give it 45 minutes on the grill on low heat.
