My absolute favorite way to cook and eat corn on the cob is to grill it. I used to boil the corn cob until I discovered the best way to prepare them is on the grill or roast earns in the oven.
BUT even after a while, the grill can get a little dull. Naturally, this leads me to spice things up a bit, literally and figuratively.
To help you celebrate this flavor of Summer and Fall I have a few interesting butter recipes you can pair with corn on the cob. You can either roast the earns in the oven or grill them with these recipes it is entirely up to you! I have a few.
Why? Because I love giving you some flexibility with the foods I suggest here. I will post them individually, so make sure you are signed up for my email notifications.
So here we go, dig in, and ENJOY!
