I’m so out of it this week. I have a crazy deadline next Wednesday so my hours have been all over the place with going in early and staying late. It’s great to get overtime especially since I love the project but I’m dragging now that it’s Friday. Normally I would just stay at work the weekend to get stuff done without distractions but I’m heading home this weekend to see my dad, sister, and 3 newphews as they all celebrate a birthday between the 22nd and 31st. I’m so looking forward to the visit, as well as my plumped up paycheck. Gotta stay positive.
But to go along with the crazy work hours, is my crazy eating schedule. I’m just not as hungry as I normally am, when I normally am. So on Wednesday I had a big breakfast burrito early on, then didn’t drag myself out of the office to eat lunch until after 2pm and yesterday I ate breakfast at 11am and lunch until after 2 again.
Well, when I planned on making this BBQ Bacon Wrapped Corn for dinner I just magically became super hungry. Imagine that. Maybe it has to do with the sweetness from the BBQ sauce, the smoky aromas from the bacon, and the fresh summertime corn. Maybe?
This will be a hit this weekend when you are watching the NASCAR race on Saturday night. How can you not BBQ when the race is being held in Tennessee? And when you fire of that grill you have to have a great side, and this BBQ Bacon Wrapped Corn is just that.
I hope that you enjoy this jazzed up summertime favorite for this week’s edition of Sprint Cup Snacks. I think it will be an instant classic at your BBQ’s!
BBQ Bacon Wrapped Corn
- 4 ears of corn
- 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
- 8 slices of sliced bacon, often low-sodium bacon is thinly sliced.
- Clean the 4 ears of corn from the husks and silks.
- Brush some BBQ sauce on each ear of corn.
- Starting at the base of the corn, begin to wrap it with a slice of bacon. Continue around with another slice of bacon, evenly wrapping until you reach the end.
- Wrap each ear of corn in a piece of aluminum foil.
- Grill for 25-30 minutes over high heat. Carefully check on the corn by unwrapping part of the aluminum foil to check to see if the bacon is done cooking. Enjoy!
