A delicious and flavorful way to grill your corn!

Every single time we grill something, we always have corn. My boys love corn. Even the picky one. So we have it quite often so he at least gets some veggies in him. 🙂  I saw this idea in the Taste of Homes magazine to wrap your corn in bacon before you put it on the grill. I was all over that! I mean, everything is better wrapped in bacon right?

The thing that I loved the most about wrapping the corn in bacon is that it kept the corn moist and cooked perfectly. It gave the corn amazing flavor throughout! And both of my kids devoured this corn and gave me a huge thumbs up! I think that this just might be the way we always do corn around here. 🙂
