Ryan and I stopped at Whole Foods last night and right when we walked in there was a big, beautiful pile of corn. I couldn’t get past it without putting a couple ears in our cart. Nothing beats sweet and juicy corn on the cob, especially when it’s nice and warm outside! Now, don’t get me wrong…I love straight up corn on the cob with good old fashioned butter and salt, but every once in a while I like mixing it up a bit and putting a twist on that traditional corn favor.
This recipe is incredibly simple and is chuck-full of great corn on the cob flavor. You’ll have to try it out the next time you end up with some corn on your plate!
Cheesy Rosemary & Garlic Corn on the Cob
5 tablespoons butter at room temperature
¼ teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely minced
2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
Garnish with sea salt, cracked pepper, and freshly grated parmesan cheese
6-8 ears of cooked corn on the cob
Take a small frying pan and over a low simmer, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add your minced rosemary and garlic and slowly stir until you can smell the rosemary and garlic essence wafting out of the cooking pan. I added a small amount of sea salt and pepper at this point too.
You’ll then want to let your cooked butter cool a bit and then mix it into your other room temperature butter. Slather the delicious butter mixture onto the cooked corn and top it off with sea salt, cracked pepper, and a good sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
This corn turned out so delish! It’s so nice and savory with the flavor combination. I LOVE rosemary, but if you know rosemary isn’t your favorite you can always sub in a different fresh herb and it would be just as fantastic. I made enough butter to generously coat about 6-8 ears of corn. This butter spread would be great on other veggies or rice and pasta dishes. You can’t really go wrong with the flavor combinations here, so don’t let any extra butter go to waste!
We only grabbed a couple ears of corn to cook, but after Ryan and I tried this, I know we will be cooking some more again soon. He was a fan of it as well! It was so nice and simple to pull these flavors together for our corn. Not only do I love great tasting food, but it makes me even happier to know how simple it was to throw together.
