Cheesy Grilled Corn

Cheesy Grilled Corn

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 12 minutes

Yield: 8 servings

Corn on the cob is always a crowd pleaser  — add creamy cheese, and everyone will want seconds. Our kid testers thought these were fantastic.

8 ears fresh corn

1/2 stick butter

6 oz crumbled feta cheese

1. Preheat grill to medium-high. Pull most of husk and silk from corn, leaving a thin layer to prevent burning.

2. Grill corn in center of grill about 12 minutes, turning often. (The husk will shrink, and some kernels will turn brown.) Remove corn to a tray and peel back husks.

3. Cool slightly, then rub each ear with butter. Soon feta over each ear and, with the back of a spoon, press cheese firmly into the corn, filling the space between the kernels. Repeat until all ears are covered.

How kids can help: Count ears of corn; peel husks; crumble cheese.
