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
- 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!
