Honey Grilled Corn


It's stinkin' HOT here lately, and I'm not lovin' it one bit. Thank goodness I'm not pregnant, because I would be even hotter, and cranky too! My basement apartment doesn't have a cooler, and lots of windows. Our one little measly fan doesn't do us much good either.

So I've been trying to avoid turning the oven on, and finding meals I can cook on the grill, or the crock-pot, or stove top. And I've been getting together with my brother and his wife for sunday dinners and we've been grilling. It's been fun! Here's a corn recipe we tried, that was kind 'eh'
corn on the cobb
  • bacon
  • honey
  • salt
  • pepper
  • parsley
  • any other seasonings you'd like

This corn was kind of pathetic. It doesn't look too bad in the picture, but they were skinny little guys with small kernals. It's not quite corn season here yet, and that's probably why.

Lay your corn on your heavy duty tinfoil and smear it with some honey. Which by the way, honey does NOT smear very well, so you might be better off drizzling it.

Cover it with your seasonings. You can still see the line of honey I put on that wouldn't smear.

Chop up about 1 slice of bacon per cobb and put all over (and under) your corn

Seal them up good and throw them on the grill for about 15 minutes--meduim heat

It might be good to check them after 10 and see how the bacon's cooking up. When they're done, take them off the grill, don't just turn the grill off and keep them warm. They're wrapped in foil for crying out loud! they'll stay warm until your ready to eat them. Otherwise they end up like the above picture. *sigh* all burnt and dried out. We learned our lesson about that!

I will try this recipe again, because it still sounds good, I've just never grilled corn before!

Honey Grilled Corn
  • 4 corn cobbs
  • 4 slices of bacon, chopped up
  • 4 Tbsp honey
  • salt, pepper, and parsley to taste
Place each husked corn cobb on heavy duty foil. Drizzle each one with about 1 Tbsp honey. Smear it all over the corn. Sprinkle with seasonings. Sprinkle with bacon. Wrap up and grill on meduim heat for about 15 minutes, turning occasionally (and checking, so they bacon doesn't burn).


  1. I'll bet with bacon it tasted good though! I'm not a big fan of grilling corn because it's so easy to char and I would definitely char it! Now I kind of do a steamed corn on the grill but I put it off to the side - sort of an indirect heat I guess??

    It's FINALLY "normal" hot here - still pretty hot, but bearable. For that one week or so it was miserable hot. Good grief it was bad. I don't know how you can make it without an air conditioner - I would die!

    Well, hope you have a great weekend!!

  2. Sounds like a great recipe. Cant beat bacon. Will you try it again?

  3. I love grilled corn! We have so much corn in Texas that there are sales on it all the time. I will have to try this next time I get some corn.

  4. Ummm what a different twist on grilled corn. My dd's new love is grlled corn. I think i will try this new version next time. To help the corn not to char on the grill. I leave the husks on the corn. Pull the husks down to about 1 inch of the bottom of the corn. Remove all the silks then slather on all your goodies. fold the husks back up over the corn and then place in heavy duty aluminum foil and place on the grill. You corn will not burn or char! tender sweet everytime.

  5. I am not sure if you did this or not, but take it from a Midwest boy. If you want to roast corn you should soak it for 24 hours before hand :)

  6. I've never grilled corn before. But it sounds yummy. Maybe someday!


I love your comments!
