Garlic-Butter Parmesan Corn

This is the best grilled corn I have ever tasted! The butter, garlic and cheese perk up the flavor and make it hard to resist. A great side dish for your cookout! —Mitzi Sentiff, Annapolis, Maryland

    This tasted pretty good when it was done, but nothing special. It was a lot of work. Would have been just as easy to cook the corn, mix the garlic and salt into the butter, butter the corn and sprinkle with the cheese without dealing with the husks.

    sounds good. my husband can't eat corn off the cob so I usually cut it off for him but will use this seasoning wrapped in foil and grilled. should be good.

    I thought this was more effort than it was worth. Nothing special.

    This is a delicious recipe that I will make again and again. This made our Father's Day Barbecue.
