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!

This corn was really great. Even DH, who is not overly fond of corn on the cob, thought it was very good. I had extra butter and he even added more butter to it after he took it out of the foil. DS#1 was here for supper also, and he really liked it also. We all gave it a 5 star!!!

Love corn this way!! I actually broke the cob in half and put 8 pieces in a foil packet instead of wrapping individually. Herbs I used from my garden were - rosemary, marjoram, savory, parsley & lemon thyme. Added the butter, salt, & pepper (corn was very sweet - didn't need sugar), wrapped and cooked on the grill.

The fresh corn season is upon us and I wanted to grill some as it was too hot to cook inside. I only had 5 cobs, so I cut the butter portion down and used dried herbs. I thought there was way too much butter so next time I would cut that in half and I only had dried herbs (used about 1/4 tsp of the herbs and about 1/2 tsp salt). We really enjoyed this dish, so I will be looking for this recipe more and more this summer! Thanks for the posting and kudos on the find!!!

The fresh herb mixture made this corn taste amazing. I cut each ear in half for easier handling. I wound up having to bake them since it was pouring out and I couldn't use the grill. 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes and they were done! I featured this recipe in my blog - http://danasfoodblog.com/?p=546.

We made this recipe with 6 ears of corn, 3 included the sugar and 3 didn't. All 6 ears came out delicious. I think we'll omit the sugar the next time we make this recipe, since the corn was sweet enough without it. Thank you for this recipe!

So so good. I left out the rosemary as I had none but the rest as written. Will make corn this way all the time.

This was really good! I made this for a bbq get together with friends and everyone enjoyed it and wanted the recipe. I cut the cobs into thirds before wrapping so they would be good serving size. The only other change was to add some smoked paprika to the butter seasoning mix. So good, thanks for the great recipe.
