Grilled Corn on the Cob Three Ways

Grilled Corn on the Cob Three Ways

“Corn on the cob is a summertime staple that is best served grilled. Using foil is a no-fail way to grill the corn resulting in the easiest and tastiest summer side dish. Just slather the corn with a little seasoned butter, wrap the ear in foil, and toss it on the grill. The slathered corn first steams inside the foil. After it soaks up the butter, the corn roasts bringing out its natural sweetness. Grilled corn is so delicious, try one of these three seasonings when hosting a barbecue this summer. This will be one vegetable your kids will definitely eat.” - Kitchen Crew
