Sweet Heat Bacon Wrapped Grilled Corn

This spicy side dish features two of my favorites foods: crispy bacon and grilled corn on the cob. Throw in some jalapenos and Sweet Heat Marinade and now you are playing with the big boys! Can you handle the heat?!
It's that time again- the yearly Saucy Mama Recipe Contest!
This year there were three categories: bacon, burgers, and seafood and you could enter up to three recipes. The winning recipe, chosen by the Saucy Mama panel of judges, will compete on Team Saucy Mama at the World Food Championships this year in Orange Beach, AL.  
Naturally, I was game to enter new recipes this year. I knew I would lean towards the bacon category but I was open to all.
 It just depended on what I felt like cooking at the moment...and the Saucy Mama sauces I chose.
Here are the six sauces I chose to work with this year:
  1. Sweet Heat Marinade
  2. Lime Chipotle Marinade
  3. Orange Habanero Wing Sauce 
  4. Poblano Ranch Dressing
  5. Zesty Cocktail Sauce
  6. Champagne Honey Mustard
My favorite Saucy Mama sauce is their Sweet Heat Marinade so of course I knew I wanted to add it to one of my bacon themed recipes. I chose this Bacon Wrapped Grilled Corn because it is a fun summertime side dish with a spicy twist: jalapenos and Sweet Heat Marinade!

I am giving away a 3 pack of Saucy Mama sauces to one lucky reader. 
Enter below!

Ingredients:

Makes 4
  • 1 1/2 lbs bacon
  • 1/4 cup Saucy Mama Sweet Heat Marinade
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, thinly sliced
  • 4 ears corn, shucked

Directions: 

  1. Lay a  sheet of parchment paper on the counter and lay 6 slices of bacon in a row, slightly overlapping one another. 
  2. Cover with another sheet of parchment paper and using a rolling pin flatten the bacon and press it together.
  3. Remove the paper and brush on a tbsp of Sweet Heat Marinade on top of bacon.
  4. Next add a few sprinkling of sliced jalapeño peppers. 
  5. Now lay one ear of corn at the bottom of the bacon and roll the corn up in the bacon.
  6. Repeat with the remaining three ears of corn until all are wrapped in bacon. 
  7. I like to cook on a grill pan or on the grill for about 30 minutes. You can also bake in the oven  at 350 degrees for the same amount of time. 
  8. It is done with the bacon is crisp and the corn is tender.
