Spicy Bacon Wrapped Corn is one of my favorite ways to enjoy fresh summer corn. Fresh corn cobs are brushed with a mixture of melted butter and crushed red pepper flakes wrapped in bacon and roasted until the bacon is crispy.

The bacon gives the corn a wonderful smoky saltiness. We all know that everything is better than bacon. This corn is a must for a cookout or bbq. It goes great with burgers, hot dogs, bbq chicken, you name it.

I like to roast this corn in the oven instead of grilling it, but you can grill it. Just be prepared for bacon grease to cause flare-ups.

Tips for making Bacon Wrapped Corn:

  • Do not use thick-cut bacon. It will not crisp up fast enough.
  • Corn is at its sweetest the day it is picked. For best flavor, buy some at the farmers market and cook it that day.
  • When wrapping the corn, don’t pull the corn tightly. Just loosely wrap it. It will shrink as it cooks.
  • If you don’t want the corn to be spicy, leave out the crushed red pepper flakes. If you want it extra spicy, add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper.
