Sweet 'n' Spicy Roasted Corn

Sweet 'n' Spicy Roasted Corn

"In Bryan, Texas, Erin Littlefield saves herself the trouble of husking those ears of sweet corn she brings to family picnics and get-togethers with this scrumptious grilling technique. My husband came up with the sweet and spicy glaze, she confides. It tastes really good, looks beautiful with the flecks of red pepper and requires much less butter than folks generally use."

I was hoping the butter seasoning would be more of a glaze than it was. The idea seemed great, but what I got was too garlicky and too greasy for my liking.

Everyone goes crazy for this corn! Like others, I just grill the corn without the husks. I also usually cut it off the cob and stir it into the sauce. Once I added way too much brown sugar and e...

This was pretty good. Not sure why it calls for the husks to be attached. Hard to get the grill marks with them on so next time i will grill them without the husks. I too think the ingredients s...

I used a combination of canned corn and roasted corn removed from the cob and this turned out really good. Nice change from the ordinary - Thanks for the recipe!

AWESOME! I'm such a corn lover and this just made it even more tasty. Another at the table said: "yummy yum yum"

This is a great way to spice up ordinary corn on the cob! Pun intended : ) Very quick & easy. I didn't have brown sugar on hand but the corn still tastes amazing without it.

Much prefer just regular butter
