Griddle Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wrapped Corn

This dish makes a perfect accompanying act to almost any recipe, but it could star as a lunch all by itself. The sweetness of the corn works great with the saltiness of the bacon, and the punch of heat from the jalapeños is tempered by the cream cheese. I have been cutting corn off of the cob since an orthodontist recommended I do so, but however you enjoy it, I am sure you will find it as ear-resistible as I do.

Makes. 2 servings.

Takes. 10 minutes to prep. 15 minutes to cook.

Ingredients

2 ears corn, shucked

1/2 cup cream cheese, softened

1 tablespoon smoked paprika

1/2 cup finely diced seeded jalapeño

6 strips thin-cut bacon

Method

1) Prep. Smear the corn with cream cheese. This allows the jalapeños to adhere better. Dust each of the ears of corn with paprika directly onto the cream cheese.

2) Sprinkle the diced jalapenos on a cutting board or flat surface, and then roll the corn through the jalapenos, picking up as many bits of pepper as you can.

3) Start with a strip of bacon at the stalk end and wrap it around the corn. If you give the bacon a bit of a stretch, it often makes a smoother layer and adheres more tightly. Overlap the strips of bacon and wrap until the entire ear of corn is covered. Take care to wrap the bacon tightly so the cream cheese is less likely to leak out.

4) Fire up. Preheat the griddle to a target temperature of about 300°F.

5) Cook. Place bacon-wrapped corn directly on the griddle and cover. Rotate the corn a quarter turn every 2 to 3 minutes. The goal is to both render the bacon and allow the corn to completely cook through.

6) Serve. The corn should be done in 15 to 18 minutes, but the slower you render the bacon, the more flavorful the corn becomes.
