    Mashed Potato Bacon Bomb

    2 cups leftover and chilled Mashed Potatoes
    Bacon..one slice per Bomb
    1 Egg
    1/2 cup Dry Bread Crumbs
    Cheddar Cheese cut into 1″ chunks (one chunk per Bomb)
    Salt and Pepper to taste
    Skewers or toothpicks
    Oil for frying~ I used Canola
    Sour Cream and toppings for dipping

    In a large bowl combine the Mashed Potatoes, Egg, and S&P until well blended.
    Grab a small scoop of the Mashed Potatoes and gently form it around a Cheddar Chunk…

    Place the Bread Crumbs into a shallow bowl, and roll that baby evenly in the Bread Crumbs….

    Now wrap the Bomb with one slice of Bacon and secure it with a toothpick or skewer…

    Place them one or two at a time into about 2″ of hot oil (350 degrees is best)
    Fry them until they’re evenly golden on all sides…

    Let them drain on some paper towels

    nd let them cool…if you can…

    Bacon-Wrapped Corn

    30min to prepare, Serves 4-6


    • 2 1/2 pounds bacon
    • 4 ears corn, shucked
    • 1 jalapeños, thinly sliced
    • 1 bunch basil, stems removed and roughly chopped
    • Sauce:
    • 1 package crema
    • 1 lime, zested and juiced
    • sea salt, to taste


    1. In a small bowl, whisk lime juice and zest into crema, and season to taste with sea salt.
    2. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
    3. For the corn: preheat oven to 350º F.
    4. Lay out 6-7 slices of bacon on a large piece of plastic wrap, overlapping them slightly, until you’ve made a rectangle that is as long as an ear of corn.
    5. Cover bacon with another layer of plastic wrap, and lightly pound it with a heavy object (meat mallet, rolling pin or skillet, etc.) until flattened and pressed together. Remove plastic wrap and set aside.
    6. Sprinkle bacon with chopped basil and jalapeño, then lay 1 ear corn horizontally along the edge of bacon closest to you and roll it, wrapping the bacon along with it, away from yourself.
    7. Transfer corn (seam side down) to a baking rack.
    8. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
    9. Once you’ve wrapped all your corn in bacon, place baking rack in oven (with an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet on the lower shelf to catch the drippings) and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until bacon is crispy and corn is cooked through.
    10. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes before serving, garnished with lime crema.

    I do those a lot. But I boil corn until half cooked and fry bacon until warm and just barely starting to curl and not shrinking yet. Then cook on low heat on gas grill or indirect heat over coal grill until bacon is done to liking. Cooks very fast that way so as soon as the steaks come off and the people line up to dish up hot corn is hot and ready.
