Bacon Wrapped Sweet Corn

Thanks for SHARING!

Bacon wrapped sweet corn combines two of the best foods in the whole world – crispy bacon and fresh corn on the cob!

During these sunny days when we’re savoring farm-fresh sweet corn, we like to wrap it in bacon and cook it on the grill. The smoky flavor of the bacon and the natural sweetness of the corn mingle together, and the result is a side dish that will elevate any dinner. (Speaking of dinner, have you tried our Bacon Mac and Cheese recipe yet?) 

If sweet corn isn’t in season, you can use frozen, thawed corn on the cob.

Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best. And as all Bensans know, bacon always makes everything better!

This recipe originally appeared in the cookbook 101 More Things to Do With Bacon by Eliza Cross. Shall we start cooking?

Sweet corn is wrapped in bacon and cooked on the grill until the corn is tender and the bacon is crispy. Your guests will go crazy for this unbeatable flavor combination.


  • 8 strips bacon
  • 8 large ears sweet corn, husks and silk removed
  • freshly ground black pepper


    1. Preheat the grill to medium heat.
    2. Spiral-wrap a bacon strip around each ear of corn and place on a 12-inch square of heavy-duty foil. Sprinkle with black pepper. Wrap securely and twist ends.
    3. Grill foil-wrapped corn, turning frequently, until corn is tender, about 15 minutes.?
    4. Remove foil and return corn to grill, turning frequently, until bacon is crisp, 4 to 5 minutes.


For easier handling for a buffet or potluck, you can break the ears of corn in half before cooking.
