Grilled Corn with Basil and Gorgonzola Blue Cheese

A definite crowd pleaser.

Grilled corn looks so pretty as a side dish and it tastes even better.

I especially like the hint of smoky flavor that the corn takes on from the grill.

And of course there’s the added bonus of not having a pot to clean which is always appreciated in my kitchen.

In this recipe, barbecued corn is drenched in butter, crumbled gorgonzola cheese and topped with thin slices of fresh basil.

Gorgonzola cheese is actually a blue cheese that tends to be more on the crumbly side and a bit more salty.

The saltiness from the cheese tastes wonderful on this grilled corn.
