Grilled corn is one of the best summer foods. It’s delicious even at its simplest, topped with a pat of butter and seasoned with salt. But change things up, and you’ll have a revelatory experience at your next cookout. Here are six delicious ways to top every ear you eat all summer long.
Pesto & Parmesan Corn
Wrap each ear in two to three strips, then grill until charred. (If you’re worried about a grease fire from the fatty bacon, wrap it in foil first.)
Feta & Caesar Corn
Caesar dressing tastes delish on most vegetables, corn included. Grill corn, then drizzle with caesar and top with crumbled feta.
Buffalo Wing Corn
Frank’s Red Hot + butter = HEAVEN. Grill corn, then smother with Frank’s (honestly, the more, the better) and top with butter.
BBQ Sauce & Potato Chip Corn
Old Bay & Mayo
Old Bay deserves a place in all summer foods. Stir together mayo with Old Bay, then spread on grilled corn.
