  • 3 ears corn (yellow or white corn) husks and silk removed
  • 2 tablespoons butter (salted) softened
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled Gorgonzola cheese to add to the serving plates
  • 2 tablespoons chopped basil or cut into thin strips, for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon crumbled Gorgonzola cheese for garnish


  • Corn dishes


  • Grilling the Corn - Preheat the barbecue grill on medium heat. 
  • To the preheated grill, add the ears of corn and close the lid on the barbecue.
  • Every few minutes, open the lid and turn the corn so that it doesn’t sit in one place too long and burn. 
  • Continue turning the ears of corn every few minutes until the corn turns a dark color in various places on each ear of corn (about 15 minutes).
  • While the corn is cooking on the BBQ, prepare the serving dishes.
  • For the Serving Dishes - Underneath where the corn will sit on a corn-on-the-cob dish, serving dish, or on a medium size plate...add softened butter.
  • Then add crumbled Gorgonzola cheese on top of the butter.  Add pepper on top of the cheese.
  • As soon as the corn is done, while it’s still hot from the grill, lay each ear of corn on top of the butter, cheese, and pepper mixture. 
  • Then push down and roll the ears of corn into the butter mixture so that the corn is coated on all sides. 
  • For the Garnish - Top each ear of corn with more crumbled cheese.
  • Garnish with chopped or thinly sliced fresh basil.
  • Serve warm.
