A cow-orker sent me this link for Bacon Wrapped Grilled Corn on the Cob – a recipe by Paula Deen. Paula Deen is pretty much my grandmother if she had a cooking show so I love most anything she makes.
This is a great example of something healthy turned bad – a classic Southern cooking trait. Fried squash comes to mind. My favorite meal is southern fried chicken, fried squash sliced thin so they soak up more oil, white rice with gravy made from the fried chicken drippings and of course sweet tea.
So after a minute of looking at the picture of bacon wrapped grilled corn on the cob we realized this is just an excuse to eat bacon. Some of the reviews even mention the problem – once you bite through the bacon it falls off! You’re left with a pile of bacon and a bare corn cob.
I haven’t tried the recipe but I imagine the bacon-infusion from grilling doesn’t stay with the corn. So save yourself some trouble and just eat the bacon. Then put some butter and salt on that unrestrained corn cob.
If you’ve tried this recipe let us know in the comments.
