ROASTED CORN WITH GARLIC HERB BUTTER

Summer will officially begin this weekend. That means pool parties with lots of the kids friends and lots of pool side grilling. Now I love a good grilled hamburger just as much as the next guy, but I love to get creative on the grill. Although my husband is the official Grill Master of our house, I am not too far behind him. He can cook a perfect steak, but my creations are usually the ones that wow the crowd. One of my go to side dishes has always been roasted corn. You can not beat a perfectly caramelized ear of corn. That is unless you bathe that it in my garlic herb butter. I am hungry just thinking about it.

This recipe is great because it is so simple. I love to keep it simple. Using fresh ingredients and just allowing them to be the star of the show. Right now in GA the corn is ripe and ready to go. The farmers market are filled with freshly picked, sweet smelling yellow corn. So, there is no better ingredient to be the star of my PreFather’s Day pool party. (Our dad is so cool one day is not enough to celebrate him)
