Yes indeed, it’s Memorial Day Weekend, and that can only mean one thing: Barbecue! And while the local weather appears to be less than cooperative today, I fully intend to wrap some steak and shrimp and chicken in bacon and toss them on the grill, rain or shine. For those less carnivorous types out there (or those looking for just ONE MORE THING to wrap in bacon), I have found a great way to get your bacon and veggies at the same time.
It’s Bacon-Wrapped Corn on the Cob, and it’s brillilant! You know you were just going to slather it in butter anyway. Why not take it to the next level with your favorite pork product? This easy recipe calls for nothing more than corn and bacon, but I say open up your spice cupboard and go crazy! A little paprika (or cayenne for the more daring) will add some spice. Some cumin, or maybe a dash of curry powder for an Indian flare. Can’t decide? Go with allspice…tastes like something for everyone.
If this recipe sounds good but you’re not an actual consumer of meats, then don’t forget the Bacon Salt. It’s 100% vegan, and would give your corn a nice smoked flavor as it steams inside its water-soaked husk. That sounds really good, I think I might try that, too!
Enjoy the three-day weekend, Internet. You deserve the break. And happy grilling!
so?…how was the bacon corn?
I’m not sure I did it right. It was all steamed inside the husk, rather than crispy the way you want bacon to be. I thought I could just take off the husk and throw it back on the grill, the bacon seemed willing to stay in place…but not for long. This idea could use a little work. But the corn itself tasted great!
