This slow cooker method of cooking corn on the cob is the perfect solution to a big gathering with little extra oven or grill space. I used a little bacon to flavor these corn cobs, but feel free to simply brush with a little butter and sprinkle with your favorite seasonings.
I used purchased precooked uncured bacon in this recipe, making it extra-simple to put together.
- 6 to 8 ears of corn
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 6 to 8 slices bacon, cooked but not crisp
- For each corn on the cob: Lay a square of aluminum foil out on the counter.
- Place one corn on the cob in the center of the foil, brush lightly with butter, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and place torn pieces of bacon on top.
- Roll foil up and seal; twist ends.
- Place in the slow cooker (large enough to hold the wrapped corn) and repeat with remaining corn.
- Cover and cook on LOW for about 4 1/2 hours, or on HIGH for about 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
Serves 6 to 8.
