Grilled Corn with Herb Butter #SundaySupper

Today, we are breaking out the grill in celebration of warm weather and spending Sunday afternoons outside with our family! The menu today is grilled corn with herb butter and some simple grilled salmon! Since the grill was hot, we added some chicken to use for easy meals throughout the week. If you ask me though, the star of the show is the corn. It’s probably because of the butter. Butter and I are friends. BFF’s actually. Butter makes everything better! Amiright?

Grilled Corn with Herb Butter is the perfect side dish for all your Summer Barbecue meals. It’s easy to do, super tasty, and cleanup is a breeze! Grilled Corn is especially delicious when you add butter, herbs and spices to the corn before grilling it. The herbs and spices liven up the flavors and add an interesting spin on basic roasted corn.

We start with regular ears of corn, husked and both ends trimmed. We’re going to slather it in herb butter, add some salt and generous amounts of pepper, wrap it in foil and toss it on the grill for 15-20 minutes.

Grilled Corn with Herb Butter for #SundaySupper A delicious and easy way to make corn on the grill! Using aluminum foil means clean up is a breeze! Adjust seasonings to create your own special blend of herbed butter.

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 garlic clove, minced finely
  • 2 Tablespoons mixed fresh herbs, minced (I used thyme, oregano and parsley - but feel free to create your own blend!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon Freshly cracked black pepper
  • 4 ears of corn, husked, ends trimmed

Using a charcoal grill, create a medium-high fire (If you have a gas grill, heat it to high)

In a medium bowl, cream together butter and minced garlic.

Add herb mixture and salt to the butter. Mix until well blended. Set aside.

Place corn cobs in a pot of cold water for approximately 20 minutes. Be sure the ears are completely covered with water. This gives extra moisture and will steam the corn kernels inside the aluminum foil.

After 20 minutes, remove the corn from the water and shake off any excess water.

Tear off squares of aluminum foil and place ears of corn diagonally in the center of each square of aluminum foil.

Liberally coat the corn in herb butter and sprinkle freshly cracked pepper over each cob.

Roll the aluminum foil around each ear of corn and close it up by folding in the ends. (Just like you'd wrap a burrito!)

Place prepared ears of corn on the grill,

Allow the corn cook about 15 to 20 minutes. Be sure to rotate the corn every so often.

Remove the corn from the grill. Be careful! Wear oven mitts as the corn will be very hot!

Once the corn is cooked, remove the aluminum foil and discard.

Serve your grilled corn with more herb butter and enjoy!


*Watch the corn carefully! If you overcook it, it will become mushy and nobody likes mushy corn!
