Bacon Braai Mielies

A Braai is a BBQ and a Mielie is corn on the cob. This is a South African recipe sent in by @toughtash from the Robertsons Herbs and Spices Facebook Page.
Essentially it looks to be wrapping a mielie in Bacon and braaiing it.
Ok for those foreigners out there (most of you) - wrap some corn on the cob in Bacon and put it on the BBQ for a little while. Comes out super tasty - but then what wouldn't when it's been wrapped in Bacon!

Here's the full recipe:


12 pieces of mealie
250 g packet streaky bacon (12 rashers)
Whole-grain mustard
Robertsons Crushed Chilli
Robertsons Barbecue Spice
Olive oil

Rinse the corn and place in a microwave-proof dish. Cover with cling-film. Microwave on 100% Power for 3 ½ minutes.
Spread each bacon rasher with wholegrain mustard. Sprinkle with Robertsons Crushed chilli and Barbecue spice.
Wrap and stretch the rasher of bacon from a short end of each corn, down the length, and back around to the same side you began at putting the mustard side inwards.
Spike a skewer through lengthwise, to secure the bacon at both short-ends.
Brush over with olive oil. Cover and refrigerate until required.
Braai over moderate coals for 10-15 minutes, turning often, until the corn has light braai marks across it and the bacon is crisp.
