Grilled Corn

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by bratty

this is the best way we like to have corn on the cob. the corn finishes cooking in the butter and seasoning, instead of adding them afterwards. it's also really easy to prepare as a side dish at a bbq, since you can do all the prep. ahead of time, and then just place them on the grill. we use greek seasoning, but i have used a variety of spices, be adventurous!

I had fresh corn that needed to be used. I soaked the corn in water and a cup of suger for an hour thinking I was going to do the regular boil thing. I didn't have greek but used creole seasoning after slathering it in soft butter and diced chives (that I keep in the freezer for whenever I need them). Thank you so much for the inspiration to do something other than boil!
