If you are anything like me, you love grilled corn. Growing up in the midwest has given me the luxury of living near hundreds of farm fields filled with this knee-high love every summer.

There’s nothing better than the Minnesota State Fair’s roasted corn stand. A little dip of butter and some salt. Ohh baby. Speaking of the state fair, growing up that was one of my summer jobs! I’d help run the Wisconsin State Fair’s apparel booth. Fun stuff.

For this recipe, I wanted to get a little bit more creative than the classic butter + salt combo. Insert —> EVOO + parmesan cheese + basil. YUM.
