Herbed Corn on the Cob Grilled in Foil

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

Corn already seasoned so this is very easy to take for a picnic.No need to bring butter or salt. Just keep corn on ice till ready to cook because the sugar will turn to starch if it sits around. More reason to buy fresh as possible. Can be doubled or cut in half. Feel free to change the herbs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place one corn on each foil.
  2. Mix remaining ingredient together and rub into each cob.
  3. Wrap foil up around the corn and grill 15 minutes turning often.

Fantastic flavor balance! I discovered this recipe after the corn was already in the oven, so we put the herbed butter on the corn after it came out of the oven. We used dried herbs, and cut the amount of butter in half. I plan to use this recipe every time I make corn on the cob, and I'll use the herbed butter on other foods as well (it's savory and sinful on Triscuits).

Very very good! My new favorite way to eat corn on the cob. Have made it twice, once I baked them because the weather did not cooperate with my plans to grill, and once I grilled them. I just grabbed a bunch of dried spices from my cupboard and added them to butter until it looked like a good amount. I think I used basil, oregano, parsley, rosemary, thyme, marjoram, savory, salt, pepper and garlic. YUM!!!

What incredible flavor! I love the herb mixture with the corn! What a fantastic way to make corn on the cob without heating up your kitchen or soaking it all day! This is destined to become an all time family favorite! Thanks Rita!
