Whenever I’m in Athens and I see people grilling corn on a street corner, I always want to take a slab of butter to show them how great the corn can be. Add bacon and feta and they might faint!
Makes 6 ears
6 ears of corn, shucked and cleaned
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons butter, softened
2 slices bacon, fried and finely crumbled
3-4 ounces Feta cheese, crumbled
Preheat your grill on the highest setting. Brush each corn ear with olive oil and sprinkle with pepper. Wrap each in a square of aluminum foil – just so there is one layer covering the corn. Grill for about 5 minutes each side – rotating corn 4-5 times during grilling. While grilling corn, combine softened butter with crumbled bacon. Crumble Feta cheese onto a large plate.
Once corn is finished, let sit for about 5 minutes to cool a bit before serving. The corn will still be very hot. Brush the corn with the bacon butter and roll in the Feta.
