Grilled Corn on the Cob

grilled corn on the cob recipe

Yum

Call me a creature of habit {or just a little bit stubborn}, yet I’ve always just boiled corn on the cob. It’s how I’ve always cooked corn on the con, and never considered that it could be cooked differently. After all, it always tasted good so why change it?

Does this sound familiar?

While at the farmers market a couple weekends ago, I bought some fresh corn on the cob. While waiting in line, a couple next to me were talking about grilling the corn they just paid for. As I walked away I started thinking about why I hadn’t tried grilling corn before. 

When I got home, I called a couple friends and brought up this ever-pressing issue. Turns out I wasn’t alone – none of them have tried grilling corn on the cob either. Perhaps many of us are stuck in our {culinary} ways somewhat. Well, I vowed to change that!

I headed to the Kraft Canada website {my favourite go-to} and took a look at their corn on the cob recipes. Not only sis they have instructions on how to grill corn on the cob {wrapped in foil or grilled in the husks} but they also had easy recipes to jazz it up a little. 

Guess what?

I grilled corn on the cob for the very first time AND it was flavoured, just enough to make you sit back and think, ‘WOW’.

That wasn’t the last time I grilled corn on the cob. I did it again a few days later. Hubby was away at work both times, yet he’s impressed not only that I grilled and didn’t burn the house down {grill-master, I am not} but also that I tried this new way of cooking. 

I can’t wait to make grilled corn on the cob many times over the summer months, perhaps for a Canada Day BBQ!

Colour me excited, I overcame my culinary stubbornness and found a new recipe that I love! 

Have you ever grilled corn on the cob?

    My family and I do this all the time when we go camping. Super easy. No need to wait hours for the water to boil on the little camp stoves.

      Yes, I need to try this out camping, I don’t have a very big pot out there to boil them. Plus, it just tastes better to me!

      Oh, I am no grill master. I have been trying for years! Now, I can BBQ hot dogs and corn, and everything else is a gamble. lol

    Parmesan cheese! Brilliiant! I’m definitely up for testing that out next time the BBQ is going. Thanks for sharing :)

    I love corn on the cob, especially when it’s grilled. I love that charred, smoky flavor that comes with grilling them.

    Yum! I’ve seen a few chicken recipes with Parmesan cheese as a batter and was intrigued. I think this would go perfect with that recipe. I love cheese in case it isn’t obvious 😉 Can’t wait to find some parmesan now!
