SIMPLE Garlic Butter Grilled Corn


Move over winter, summer’s on it’s way!  The cold weather is on its way out, so you know what that means right?  It’s time to fire up the grill again!

If you’re looking for a summer favorite, then this garlic butter grilled corn recipe should be at the top of the list!


  • As the grill is heating up, simply combine the spices listed below with some softened butter.  Use a silicone pastry brush to spread the flavored butter onto the corn.
  • Corn does NOT need to pre boiled, however, if it’s early on in the season and the corn isn’t fully ripe, the corn can soften a bit by  blanching it in salted water for about 4 minutes before grilling.


  • Place the corn over HIGH heat.  Close the cover and cook undisturbed for 15-20 minutes turning every 5 minutes.  You’ll know they’re done when the corn has nice charred grill marks everywhere.
  • For the final touch, brush some of the remaining garlic butter on top and serve. The creamy garlic butter compliments the sweetness of the corn to perfection, so we won’t blame you for going overboard with it!

This garlic butter grilled corn recipe is a meal in itself, so it’s perfect for vegetarians.  But for meat lovers out there, this side dish goes well with brisket, burgers, sausages, steaks, and BBQ chicken.
