It’s my personal belief that everything’s better with bacon, and once you try corn on the cob wrapped in bacon, I have a feeling you’ll be a believer, too.
Wrapping everyone’s favorite summer side in bacon is sure to take your backyard barbecues to the next level, so make sure you’re familiar with these recipes before the guests arrive.
You can start off with a basic recipe and mix and match ingredients from there.
Keep It Simple And Delicious With Bacon
This recipe from the Spend With Pennies blog uses just corn, bacon and pepper to create a delicious side to pair with burgers, hot dogs, pork sliders and so much more. The blog offers an important tip: Use foil to keep the bacon on the corn as it grills.
If you don’t have access to a grill, you can also use an oven to create these dishes indoors. But the bacon is sure to get nice and crispy on the grill, which will make it all the more delicious.
Once you’ve nailed this simple recipe, you can start to think outside of the box. Just look at some of the magic you can whip up for your taste buds once you get those creative-cooking juices flowing:
