Next time you walk past the “grilled corn tent” at your local arts & crafts festival, remember this recipe and try it at home. Save a few bucks and give your palate a surprise. Check out each flavor!
- 4 ears of corn (or how ever many you need)
- kitchen twine
- Corn Cob #1: low fat mayonnaise, 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese, 5 strips cooked bacon
- Corn Cob #2: low fat mayo, 1/2 cup feta or cotija cheese, chile powder, lime wedges
- Corn Cob #3: 2 vine ripe tomatoes, 2 tbs. finely grated parmesan cheese, 1-2 tsp. of finely chopped basil, 1/4 tsp. salt
- Corn Cob #4: 4 tbs. softened salted butter, 1 tsp. white sesame seeds, finely chopped cilantro, toasted sesame oil
- Corn Cob #5: 4 tbs. softened salted butter, 1 small pressed garlic clove, 1/4 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
First… Grill Your Corn on the Cob!
- Pull (do not remove) corn husks down to end of the stalk and remove the little silks. Bring the husks back up to the top and tie securely with the twine (husks protect the corn during grilling).
- Before grilling, soak the corn in water (with the husks tied) for 10 minutes to keep the husks from burning.
- Grill your corn (medium heat) about 15 minutes or until tender. Now, remove the husks and get ready for some flavor…
Second… Add your Flavor!
- Bacon Cheddar Cob: Spread low fat mayo on the warm corn cob and roll your corn cob in 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese and bacon pieces!
- Mexican Style Street Corn: Spread low fat mayo on the warm corn cob and roll in 1/2 cup feta or cotija cheese. Sprinkle with chile powder and add a lime wedge to squeeze juice on top.
- Pizzaiola Spread: Grate 2 vine ripe tomatoes and press out excess liquid. Stir in 2 tbs. finely grated parmesan cheese, 1-2 tsp. of finely chopped basil and 1/4 tsp. salt. Spread this mixture on the corn cob.
- Toasted Sesame Butter: Mix together 4 tbs. softened salted butter, 1 tsp. white sesame seeds, 1/2 tsp. finely chopped cilantro and 1/4 tsp. toasted sesame oil. Spread this mixture on the corn cob. Sprinkle more sesame seeds on top.
- Garlic-Old Bay Butter: Mix together 4 tbs. softened salted butter, 1 small pressed garlic clove and 1/4 tsp. Old Bay seasoning. Spread this mixture on the corn cob and sprinkle with more Old Bay seasoning.
Any of these flavors would be so good! Gotta try the cheddar and bacon one first!
