Grilled Corn on the Cob

One of God’s foods that we can’t decide if it is a grain or a vegetable. I really don’t care, I just know I love it! Corn! I love corn on the cob, corn off the cob, corn nuggets (which I have found a recipe I’m soon gonna try), cornbread, corn muffins, corn casserole. You get the idea! I love corn!

I have always boiled my corn on the cob, because that is the way my mother did it.  Now that I have discovered grilling it, I probably won’t boil it again. My mom would be ok with that, because she loved to try new recipes as well!

Whatcha Need

  • Corn still in the husks
  • Butter, softened
  • Italian Seasoning (you could also try chili powder,  seasoned salt, or whatever flavor you are in the mood for.)

Putting It All Together

IMG_9336 Pull back the husks, but do not remove them.

IMG_9340 Remove the silk.

IMG_9342 Pull the husks back over the corn and place in a container large enough to hold them and to be covered with water.

IMG_9344 You may need to put something on top of the corn to keep them under the water. Ironically, I used a large bottle of water.

Let them soak for about 30 minutes. This keeps the husks from burning while on the grill.

After the corn has soaked, lift them out of the water and let the extra water drain off. Sorry, no picture of this.

IMG_9340 Pull the husks back again.

IMG_9351 In a cup, place softened butter and Italian Seasoning. How much you use is up to you.

IMG_9353Mix it together.

IMG_9355Using a spoon, or knife, spread the seasoned butter over the corn.

IMG_9361 Pull the husks back up one more time and tie with string (I used dental floss) to keep the husks in place while they cook.

Place on grill at med-low heat and grill for 25-30 minutes turning every 10 or so minutes. We also made Grilled Bacon Wrapped Chicken with Ham and Cheese . Yummy!!!

Honestly, if your corn isn’t in the husks, you can also wrap the corn in foil to grill it. If it isn’t a good day for grilling, you cn also cook it in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Enjoy!!!
