Steak and French Fry Salad with Blue Cheese Butter + Poached Eggs
So I have been grilling a lot of corn this summer.
I figured it would be nice for me to show you guys exactly how I do it. I think it is a pretty awesome method.
Plus, I am giving you a few of my very favorite butters to slather on to all the that perfectly charred corn.
First, you’re gonna want to preheat your grill to high heat.
Then completely remove the husk from the corn.
Now rub the corn with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Next take a small sheet of tin foil and wrap each sheet around the corn so there is only one layer of foil covering the corn.
Throw the foil covered corn directly on the grill. Grill the corn for twenty to twenty-five minutes, rotating the corn three or four times. After twenty minutes or so, remove the layer of foil and grill the corn for five to ten minutes longer or until the corn is lightly charred all over.
Remove from the grill.
Oh, and while the corn is grilling I like to stir together whatever butter I am making to go along with the corn. I think my favorite is the chipotle lime with cotija cheese.
Or maybe the blue cheese. Can’t decide.
Let the corn cool for five minutes and then slather with butter.
Stand the corn up right like the photo below.
Then using a sharp knife cut into the corn and slice the kernels.
Now you can stir the corn into……
Salsa, pasta, more, pasta, stuffed into sweet potatoes, guacamole, corn fritters, slaw, salad, more salsa and I even put it on top of pizza.
I told you I liked corn.

Mmm looks absolutely lovely! I have 5 ears of corn in the fridge just waiting to be grilled. Now I feel confident that I can create something as delicious as what you’ve created =) Pinning!
YA! Hope your corn turns out awesome! Thanks Lisa!
Mmmm I love grilled corn! And that butter, yum!
By wrapping it definitely seals a lot of it’s own juices. Great tip!
I have been wondering about grilling corn- seen it done in husk and out. I’ll have to give this a try! Thanks! Visiting from Marvelous Mondays.
Thank you, Nicole!
Love at first sight 🙂
I know! Thank you, Nessa!
I am loving all of the butter options that you listed here! They all sound awesome!!
Thank you, Hannah!
I loveeee this! What a great recipe and pictures
Wrapping the corn in one layer of aluminum foil sounds like a great tip! Never thought about it.
Thank you, Daniela!
Looks so good and summery! Will definitely be trying your method (and the blue cheese butter!)
Thanks Joy! The blue cheese butter is so good!
Even though it seems a little like common sense, I never really figured out a way to grill corn until this summer. I love trying new methods so I can perfect the art of grilling corn. I’ve tried everything except for wrapping the corn in foil. I’ll be trying that next. I also used crumbled bacon and butter for my grilled corn. It was really good, but I couldn’t help but think how bad butter and bacon is.
Bacon on cron is the bomb! Love that! Thanks Kristi!
This year I’ve been completely hooked on grilling my corn! Can’t wait to try some if your incredible butters, thanks for divulging your delicious secrets!! 🙂
Thank you so much!
