Recipe for State Fair Grilled Corn

The buttery grilled taste of state fair corn is something that people look forward to all year. But, what if you could recreate that fair taste for a fraction of the cost, at home, anytime you wanted?

Corn was on sale for .25 an ear, so I picked some up to figure out this recipe. I knew I wanted to grill them, but was trying to figure out a way to grill them without making a big mess or the kernels getting burned.

Since I had some heavy duty aluminum foil on hand, I pulled it down and measured out separate sheets for each ear of corn. I also recently picked up some Land O’ Lakes European butter via my work as a BzzAgent. Since this butter is very rich and creamy, I thought it was the perfect complement to this recipe.

  4. Cut one tablespoon of butter into four long slices and place across top of ear of corn.
  5. Salt and pepper corn.
