Basic Grilled Corn Recipe

We have some family that lives in Iowa, so over the years we’ve slowly but surely fallen in love with fresh corn.  It’s such a tasty veggie for any meal – and all our kids eat it!  But me being who I am, can’t just boil them in water on the stove.  That’s boring.  So, off to the grill with them.

The first step is to soak the corn in water, husks and all.  This will keep the husks from burning.  Then you can put the corn on the grill inside the husks if you want, or rip the husks off and grill the corn directly. I prepared these a couple different ways, so for just a basic grilled corn, I’m showing you direct on the grill.

Before you grill them, drizzle some olive oil and a dash of salt & pepper.  That’s all you need.  Grill them for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Grilled corn is a favorite around our household in the summer. We baste the ears in olive oil and a smidge of butter, but then add sea salt and various spices for some extra flavor. Lastly, we wrap them in tin foil and throw them on the grill for about 10-15 mins…and once you have them this way, you’ll never want boiled corn again!
