Grilled corn on the cob is a popular item on the menus of backyard BBQs and picnics across the country. Try this version with an herb butter that makes the corn seasoned and succulent. It’s a perfect summer treat.


1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed garlic
4 ears corn, husked


In a small bowl, mash together butter, cheese, basil, salt, pepper, and garlic. Brush about 1 tablespoon of seasoned butter over each ear of corn. Grill directly over medium heat, turning occasionally, until browned in spots and tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm with remaining butter.
