Sandra Lee enlightened cooks and foodies with her tricks that she calls "Semi-Homemade." Her cocktail of "30 percent store-bought indredients, combined with 70 percent fresh ingredients" makes an unbeatably practical, homemade meal.

Her recipes will let you whip up real summer flavors without thinking twice about sweating and slaving over each ingredient.

As if butter-drenched corn on the cob weren't irresistible enough, wrap a strip of bacon around it, drizzle it with cheese and watch its popularity soar. Roasted ears of cheese corn are a common street snack in Mexico. A four-cheese and mayonnaise sauce makes it picnic-perfect.


  • 1 packet four-cheese sauce mix (1.5-ounce)
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 ears corn on the cob, shucked and cleaned
  • 4 slices bacon (thick-cut)
  • Cooking Directions

    Directions for outdoor Grilling

    Set up grill for direct cooking over medium heat.

    In a small bowl, sprinkle cheese sauce mix over mayonnaise; stir thoroughly. Brush corn with mixture. Wrap each ear with a bacon slice and wrap in foil.

    Place on hot grill. Cook for 25 to 30 minutes or until corn is tender and bacon is cooked, turning often.

    Remove from grill; serve hot.

    Alternative directions, if cooking indoors:

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees

    Prepare corn, wrapped in foil, as directed.

    Roast corn in oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and serve hot.
