Melt butter in a small bowl in the microwave.

Allow butter to cool and harden.

Additional Toppings for Grilled Corn

Want to add a little extra something? These toppings are great additions to grilled corn on the cob. 

  • Fresh arugula. This smoky flavored lettuces chopped and sprinkled over the top after grilling tastes delish!
  • Paprika. A light sprinkle adds both color and flavor.
  • Old Bay. One of my favorite seasonings. Makes me feel like I’m on the east coast every time I sprinkle it!
