Grilled Corn with Basil Garlic Oil

Pin It
Corn on the cob was never something I would jump at the chance to get in the past. Not when it was fresh at the farmer's market, not when it was on sale, and certainly not when I was looking for something new to try.

Corn OFF the cob is so crunchy, sweet and delicious, but I just hated eating it off of the cob for one simple reason: it got stuck in my teeth and would not come out. I know you know how uncomfortable that is. It's the worst. Feeling strands stuck in your teeth hours later. GAH!

Then I realized something: that's what floss is for.

So when Chris bought some fresh corn on the cob to grill with our dinner the other night, I was excited to try out a new recipe. The corn was grilled to perfection and the flavor was amazing. It doesn't dry out on the grill like it often can if being cooked in the microwave. He made a basil and garlic infused oil to spread on prior to grilling, and then we immediately spread butter over the whole thing when it was done. Pure deliciousness I tell you. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe

  • 4 ears corn
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 2 tbsp. butter

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Mix olive oil, garlic and basil in a small bowl. Set aside.

Husk the corn and remove as much of the silky thread as possible. Place each ear of corn on a piece of aluminum foil. Brush the corn with the olive oil mixture. Tightly wrap the aluminum foil around each ear of corn.

Place the corn on the grill and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from grill and set aside to cool a little.

Open each foil packet and immediately spread each ear of corn with a pad of butter. Enjoy!
