Grilled Corn on the Cob

Is there anything better during the summer months than grilled corn on the cob?

If you are looking for easy grilled vegetable recipes you can’t beat this one.

The joy of grilled corn is that you can take it anywhere.

Picnics, tailgating, barbecues are all great events for roasting corn on the barbecue.

You can eat this grilled corn immediately, slathered in butter of course, or you can cut the corn kernels off and use the grilled corn kernels in a marinated vegetable salad with other grilled vegetables.

Either way, get ready for a real summer treat.

If your corn is really sweet, try eating it without the butter. Yes, without the butter. Believe it or not, if you have good corn, it doesn’t even need the butter to taste great.

Ingredients
 
 

  • cobs corn, young roasting corn
  • butter
  • salt and pepper to your taste

  • Serve with lots of butter and salt, plus pepper if you wish.

Oven Baked Variation:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
