  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 12 medium ears sweet corn, husks removed


  1. In a small bowl, mix the first 8 ingredients until blended; spread over corn. Wrap each with a piece of heavy-duty foil (about 14 in. square), sealing tightly.
  2. Grill corn, covered, over medium heat until tender, turning occasionally, 15-20 minutes. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.
