Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 ears corn, husks and silks removed (or use as many as you like that will fit into the pan)
  • 1 quart milk (can use half milk and water)
  • butter, softened
  • salt and pepper


  1. Place the corn into a 13 x 9-inch dish or use a dish large enough to hold the corn and milk.
  2. Pour the milk over the corn.
  3. Allow to sit for minimum 1 hour or even longer turning the cobs in the milk frequently (if you are leaving the corn in the milk longer you will need to refrigerate).
  4. Drain the cobs well on paper towels or clean tea towels (do not rinse the cobs in water).
  5. Brush each cob generously with soft butter, the season with salt and pepper.
  6. Wrap each cob tightly in a piece of foil.
  7. Grill or about 30 minutes on medium-high turning occasionally.

Wonderful way to make corn-on-the cob when you don't want to heat up the kitchen by boiling water. You couldn't find an easier method either. The milk makes the corn nice and tender. I used seasoning salt in place of the S&P. Delicious Carol.

I really enjoyed the corn this way, although I must admit I didn't follow directions very well. I was in a hurry, so soaked the corn in milk about an hour, then boiled in water for 10 minutes, then in the milk for about 4 minutes. Then I took it and threw it on the grill for about 8 minutes. It got a nice char and was really flavorful! Thanks! Made for your Grilling game at Kittencal's Kitchen.
