The Best Dang Corn You've EVER Had

Last week, to celebrate the completion of my new outdoor living room, I decided to tackle my grill. I'm not gonna lie, it scares me a little. I think it has something to do with turning it on and watching a big ball of fire shoot toward me. But I digress...

The one thing I can just KILL on the grill is corn on the cob. You see, for work, I'm a member of the Rotary Club where every August, we sell corn at the weekly concert series. The first year, I scoffed, the second year, I joined in, the third year, I MASTERED the art of perfect corn on the cob...and the secret ingredient might just freak you out!!!

All you need for perfect grilled corn is butter, some spices, and MILK!!!

Start by marinating your corn in a vat of milk. I know, it's truly one of the creepiest things I've ever heard, too, but just TRUST ME...it makes the corn perfect!

Then, throw a slice of butter in some foil...

And then add your corn, making sure to twist the ends so it's all covered up...

Throw the corn on the grill for about 20-25 minutes, then serve with spices such as garlic salt (YUMMMMMMY!), paprika, parmesan cheese or whatever floats your boat.

You'll love this corn on the cob and your guess will think you're a GENIUS! Right Beks, Allison, Amy, Lisa, and Genevieve? I can't hear you!!!

For other delightful recipes, please check out Tasty Tuesday at Jen's site, Balancing Beauty and Bedlam! It's a favorite of mine, for sure!!!!

I'm also sharing this at Works for Me Wednesday, because it's the PERFECT summer snack!

I never would have guessed milk. What does it do for the corn?

Wow! We are going to have to try that!

Wonder if it would be as good in the oven? We don't bbq (grill) very often here.

I love fresh corn. I'll have to try the milk!

You should try soaking them the corn in the husk in milk and then toss them on the grill. It is great way to save on the foil.
