Candied-Bacon Wrapped Corn

Corn is one of my favorite foods. Well, actually the entire family would concur.

With Chad being from Iowa, I am sure growing up with corn around you really lent itself to his love of corn. Me on the other hand. I grew up in an Italian family and we had corn with turkey roasts and pot roast.

It was always accompanied by mashed potatoes and to this day mashed potatoes and corn remind me of home.

Of course growing up my mom never cooked anything like this divine creation. hahaha I bet you are wondering how on earth I put this recipe together.

Well, I have a great story to share about the marriage of corn and bacon and how it came to be but the bottom line is that this is absolutely life changing and you have to try it.

The corn on the cob is wrapped with thin cut bacon so it can get nice and crispy. Then it’s sprinkled with brown sugar.

Ingredients
 

  • 8 ears corn, cleaned
  • 16 slices thin cut bacon, about 1 pound
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Place corn on the prepared baking sheet. Wrap each ear of corn with 2 slices of bacon, starting at one end, pull gently and spin the corn as you wrap it with the bacon. Start the second slice where the first slice ends. Place the end of the bacon on the bottom as you set it on the baking sheet; this will help hold it in place.
  • Starting with the bottom side of the corn (where the bacon ends), press about one tablespoon brown sugar onto each ear of corn. Spinning as you press until all of the bacon is lightly coated with brown sugar. Place the corn back on the baking sheet with the end of the strips of bacon on the bottom; this will help keep it in place.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the bacon, is crisp cooked. Carefully rotate corn 1/4 turn every 10 minutes, using tongs, try not to knock the bacon off. If the bacon comes off, just use the tongs to wrap it back on the corn.
  • Remove from oven.
  • Serve and enjoy!

  1. It would be easier to coat both sides of the bacon with brown sugar and cayenne first then wrap the corn with it.
