18 Corn On The Cob Recipes: {Yum!}

Well I'm thinking garden here... I know its early but some of you live in different parts of the US.. So here are some great recipes for corn on the cob. I really like corn.. We can't grow it here at the farm because the coons like it better.. When the coons come in they get on top of the corn knock it down take the corn and off they go.. All that time spent for nothing..
Descriptions below are quotes from the original recipe pages
You Can Jazz Up Corn Easily With A Simple Mix Of Herbs & Butter

  5. Herbed Corn on the Cob: Lemon thyme, available at farmers markets and specialty produce markets, lends this corn a delicate lemony-herbal flavor, but feel free to use regular fresh thyme instead. Steaming the corn is a gentle method that allows you to cook it in butter; you can pull back the husks and use them as a handle while eating. Recipe found at Epicurious.
  6. Herb Grilled Corn-on-the-cob: Butter, green onions, fresh oregano, fresh coriander, parmesan cheese–how could this not be great! Found at Lifestyle Food.

  8. Corn on the Cob With Molasses Butter: A sweet take on an old favorite. Recipe found at Quick & Simple.
  9. Grilled Corn on the Cob With a Trio of Flavored Butters: Sweet summer corn, a whole-grain source of potassium, is delicious on its own. Even better: Spread it with one of the flavorful butter blends for a luxuriously indulgent touch. Recipe from Self Magazine.
  10. Baked Corn on the Cob with Herbs: Enjoy an all-American classic all buttered up and herbed! Recipe found at Betty Crocker.
  11. Corn on the Cob with Parmesan Cheese: Recipe from Food Network.
  12. Grilled Corn on the Cob with Caesar Butter: Grilled corn on the cob is pretty simple to make and is always good with butter, but what is good about this recipe is the Caesar butter. It adds a savory tang to the corn, making it very delicious. Recipe found at Made By Melissa.
  13. Maple Chipolte Grilled Corn on the Cob: The maple syrup will give it a lovely, deep flavor that your kids (and you) will quite willing eat. However, I’m quite pleased with the combination of the sweet and spicy in this dish and I think you’ll like it, too. Do something different and give it a try! Recipe found at Angies Pangies.
  14. Corn on the Cob with Cheesy Butter: For a nifty, hands-on way to coat corn, pack the butter mixture into a plastic-lined ramekin and chill; then let guests roll their own corn in the butter. Recipe from Martha Stewart.
  15. Curried Corn On The Cob With Goat Cheese: If goat cheese is not to your liking, try queso fresco or any other crumbly cheese such as feta. Parmesan is also good, and even though it won’t spread well, you can sprinkle the mixture on. Recipe found at Taste Of Home.
  16. Killer Mexican Barbecued Corn On The Cob: I tried this fantastic Mexican corn at a basement Mexican restaurant in New York. We ate loads of amazing Mexican food but it was these snacky corn on the cobs which really stuck in my mind. Barbecuing the corn gives it the most wonderful sweet and smoky flavour, and with the heat from the chilli and the saltiness of the cheese, you’re onto a real winner. Make these for your mates at a barbecue and they’ll never forget it! Recipe from Jamie Oliver.
  17. Grilled Corn on the Cob With Chipotle Mayonnaise: The spicy dip that I serve with grilled corn (as well as with steamed or boiled corn) is sort of like a Mexican a├»oli, pungent with garlic, smoky and spicy with chipotle chiles. You can also serve it as a dip with vegetables or chips, or use it as a flavorful spread for sandwiches and panini. The recipe makes more than you’ll need for six ears of corn — if you’re having a crowd for a barbecue, you’ll have enough. Recipe from The New York Times.
  18. Grilling/BBQ : Firecracker Corn on the Cob: A mixture of softened butter and TABASCO brand Pepper Sauce is brushed over ears of corn before grilling. Recipe from TABASCO.
