Prep Time

15 minutes

Cooking Time

15 minutes


Serves: 4 to 6

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 punnet SPAR Freshline sweetcorn bites (12 pieces)
  • 250 g packet SPAR streaky bacon (12 rashers)
  • whole-grain mustard
  • SPAR olive oil
  • Cheesy seasoning eg cheese Aromat

Recipe Method

1. Rinse the corn under running tap water, then place them in a microwave-proof dish and cover with cling-film. Microwave on 100% Power for 3 ½ minutes.
2. Wrap and stretch a rasher of bacon from a short end of each corn, down the length, and back around to the same side you began at. Spike a skewer through lengthwise, to secure the bacon at both short-ends.
3. Brush over with olive oil and liberally sprinkle over the cheese-seasoning powder. Cover and refrigerate until required,.
4. Braai over moderate coals for 10-15 minutes, turning often, until the corn has light braai marks across it and the bacon is crisp.

Hints & Tips

Boil half a bag of SPAR Freshline baby potatoes, and use two together on each skewer, instead of the sweetcorn.
