Friends! Happy 4th of July! WE are celebrating America’s birthday with our favorite grilled corn recipe that has FINALLY found its way to zee bloggy!

…it involves feta cheese… Surprised?! Not if you’ve been coming around here for a little while!  Oh.my.word. THE FLAVOR of this corn and buttah! Counting down the minutes until grill-time this afternoon.

But first, 4th of July Parade here we come! Looking forward to the crowds and the elbowing, all while trying to snatch a few candies for the kids…it’s brutal out there.

About that corn, though…

The best news, in my opinion, is that when corn is grilled, it’s THAT much better AND sweeter. I also love the smoky flavor that the grill adds to corn, but most importantly, I love love love the preparation method:

  • Turn ON the grill.
  • Place the *CORN IN HUSKS* on the grill.
  • Close the grill
  • 18-ish minutes later, BOOM! ⤵

⤴⤴⤴ Ain’t they gorgeous?

Grilled corn with a generous slathering of butter is indeed amazing, but adding some feta and herbs to that butter? Like, WHOA!

What you’re looking at is some crumbled feta, butter, fresh chives, and red pepper flakes.

All of this mixed together creates a creamy, salty, textured, buttery mixture (a.k.a. compound butter) that takes very little effort, but results in a winning combination for the perfectly grilled corn on the cob.

Lastly, please fire up that grill, throw that corn on it and get on this as soon as you possibly can. While the corn is on the grill, you’ll have plenty of time to make the delicious feta cheese and chives butter, which should take you no longer than 3.27 minutes to put together.

Happy 4th and be safe!! 

ENJOY!
