Inside or Outside: Seasoned Grilled Corn on the Cob
What are ya‘ll doing for the Fourth? I bet you can name at least five people you know having or contributing to a cookout. Could you be one of the five? What’s on the menu? I have concluded, without doing any kind of legitimate study, that if men are planning a cookout most oftentimes there will only be meat on the menu. While most men work the grill, what’s oftentimes kept quiet is that most women are doing all of the prep work in the kitchen – plus making sides and desserts. Before a charcoal is lit there has been lots of planning over the phone and via text on who should bring what. Right down to the ice and cups. I’ve got corn and I wanted to try something a little different this year. When we usually have corn at a cookout we always boil it and slap butter and salt on it later. Problem is if you don’t catch the corn right out of the hot steamy water you could have a difficult time getting butter to stick. And I find this to be a problem. So I like this grilled corn recipe. I tried it out on my trusty George Foreman. No one at my table, that I could see, had to add any salt or butter. So I am boldly taking it to the cookout. Hopefully this won’t get me put off the sides and desserts committee!
Note: This can be done on a George Foreman type grill or the regular outdoor grill without husks it just depends on the corn cookout flavor you’re looking for.
4 -6 stalks of corn on the cob (break in half optional) 1 stick melted butter 1 large chopped garlic clove 1/4 - 1/2 tsp Tony’s seasoning 1 tsp dried or fresh chives Shredded Parmesan cheese (fresh shred is the best!!)
Melt butter. Add garlic clove and seasonings.
If ‘grilling’ on the Foreman: Boil for 10 minutes and then place on grill for a minute or two to finish off with the charred flavor.
If grilling on charcoal or gas grill: Place the corn directly over a very hot fire and grill. Turn occasionally, until charred and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Baste with seasoned butter.
