Labor Day: Quick and Easy Corn on the Cob


For Labor Day, we had a great feast of foods! It was beyond delicious and filling! Nevertheless, it was for a bundle of people, so making recipes as easy and quick is essential. Also,  making sure they are allergy friendly is a must, too!

For the corn, it was really simple and easy. Nothing beats the flavor and taste of grilled corn! Also, the way I prepare corn makes it easy to prepare before hand and easy clean up.

For starters, when shucking a corn, a tip I use for removing the hairs faster is wiping the corn down with a dish towel. It is a quick way to shake most of those fine hairs free – leaving only a quick check to assure they are gone.

Next,  I tear sheets of aluminum foil and put the shucked corn in it. I put a dab of butter, or in my case, Earth Balance Soy-Free Butter with  a sprinkle of salt and pepper. I foiled the corn and put it aside till cooking time!


Grilled Corn on the Cob

Serves: 1

Prep Time:  5 minutes    Cook Time: 10 minutes   Total Time: 15 minutes


  • A head of corn
  • 1 Tbsp of  Earth Balance Soy-Free Butter (or butter)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • A sheet of aluminum foil.


  1. Shuck the corn. Wipe down the corn to help remove lingering hairs. Inspect for any remaining hairs.
  2. Put the corn in the sheet of aluminum foil
  3. Dab with the butter. I like to put a chunk on each side of the corner.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Foil up the corn to seal it up.
  6. Once the grill is ready and the coals are about medium heat, which is when you can hold your hand over the coals only for 5 to 7 seconds, time to put the corn on the grill. Keep the foil on.
  7. Have the corn on the grill, covered, for 5 minutes.  Flip the corn. Close the lid of the grill and cook for an additional 5 minutes. The corn is ready to eat  – juicy and buttery delicious!
  8. Take the corn off the grill, remove the foil, and the corn is ready to eat as is! Some like to add additional butter, salt, pepper, or hot sauce – but I enjoy just as is! After all, it has been marinated in butter, salt, and pepper in the foil already.


All the Best,

The Brecheisen Batch
