We commonly grill, year round actually, but even more in the summer. Any meal I can make entirely outdoors is a winner in my book. If I can cook outside and not heat my whole house up, then I am definitely in.

Cilantro Lime Bacon Wrapped Corn is zesty and sweet with a little bit of salty from the compound butter and bacon wrapping.

The bacon doesn’t get super crispy because it is being steamed in aluminum and butter. If you like a crispier bacon, unwrap your aluminum foil and char a few minutes over direct flame.

You might want to make extra cilantro lime butter and set it aside for after you finish it off since you will lose some of the seasoning from this step.

This grilled corn is great for throwing together for a get together or even for a family meal. It’ll only take you 15 minutes to prep, and once they are on the grill they just need to be turned every 5 minutes or so.

Not many things are better than grilled corn on the cob. You’ll love all the flavors you taste in each mouthful.

Wood cutting board – wood won’t dull your knives like plastic and if treated properly, has natural antimicrobial properties.

Good knife – Global is my favorite! They are worth the price, I promise. I am kind of obsessed with them and store them tucked away so no one else can use them. Including hubby. Hands off my good stuff!
