Candied Bacon Wrapped Oven Roasted Corn

Candied Bacon Wrapped Oven Roasted Corn

TOTAL TIME 55 Minutes


  • 8 ears corn, cleaned 
  • 16 slices thin cut bacon (about 1 pound) 
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. 
  2. Place corn on the prepared baking sheet. Wrap each ear of corn with 2 slices of bacon, starting at one end, pull gently and spin the corn as you wrap it with the bacon. Start the second slice where the first slice ends. Place the end of the bacon on the bottom as you set it on the baking sheet; this will help hold it in place. 
  3. Starting with the bottom side of the corn (where the bacon ends), press about one tablespoon brown sugar onto each ear of corn. Spinning as you press until all of the bacon is lightly coated with brown sugar. Place the corn back on the baking sheet with the end of the strips of bacon on the bottom; this will help keep it in place. 
  4. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the bacon, is crisp cooked. Carefully rotate corn 1/4 turn every 10 minutes, using tongs, try not to knock the bacon off. If the bacon comes off, just use the tongs to wrap it back on the corn. 
  5. Remove from oven. 
  6. Serve and enjoy! 

COOK'S NOTE:  We also love to add a dash of cayenne pepper to the brown sugar.  The best way to do that is to place brown sugar in a small dish.  Add the desired amount of cayenne pepper and mix. Then apply to the bacon.
