Spicy Bacon Wrapped Corn
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.
- 6 ears corn, husks and silks removed
- 1 tablespoons melted butter
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 12 slices bacon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Combine melted butter and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Brush corn with butter mixture.
Loosely wrap 2 pieces of bacon around each piece of corn. Place on prepared baking sheet.
Roast for 30 to 35 minutes, turning corn over halfway through.
For best results, DO NOT use thick-cut bacon.
To make extra spicy, add a pinch of cayenne pepper to butter mixture.
