"I made this for a labor day party yesterday and it turned out really good. You get the kick of the horseradish after. We also added it to the jalape?o corn bread I made. I doubled the recipe so I can also try it on other things as well like toolbarco suggested."

"Talk about a versatile recipe! The corn on the cob version was absolutely delicious but I agree with others that using the "sauce" in a variety of other recipes is awesome. pasta, chicken, beef, vegetables--the sauce would pair well with any of these. I look forward to playing with this one!!"

"I made the full recipe for the buttery horseradish topping, even tho I was making only two ears of corn, not on the grill , but in the oven. I wrapped both ears in the same foil packet, baked in a 375? oven for 15 minutes, turning twice, and loved the results. I used the remaining topping for another totally different dish, chicken and pasta, and was amazed at how good that was, too. Hats off to Trish for a wonderful recipe."

"Only difference for me is to melt the butter and shake salt and pepper over the buttered corn."
