Reviews for Bacon-Wrapped Corn
"Good corn, although I'm not convinced the bacon really added that much flavor. Still a great way to cook corn."
"We are HUGE bacon fans in my house, so we try to put bacon on everything. This is great but like others, it is hard to get the bacon as crispy as we like it. We have found using the least fatty bacon and microwaving it for a few minutes before putting on the corn works the best for us."
"I'm glad I'm not the only one who had trouble getting the bacon to be crisp. I will try jackofalltrades suggestion of microwaving the bacon before wrapping around the corn. Otherwise, super easy to make, and really, really yummy."
"Yes, everything does taste better with bacon and some fat. I really liked this idea but improved the crispiness of bacon by taking off the aluminum foil the last 5 minutes or so to crisp up the bacon and brown up the corn as well. Before serving I drizzled some soy sauce. Yeah for the summer ideas."
"sinfully good. there is some question as to how to make the bacon a little crisper. but beyond that--Why didn't we ever do this before?!!!"
