Deep South Eats: Miss Bettie's Zesty Grilled Corn

I would literally make this corn every single weekend if it were possible/reasonable. It takes super sweet corn and gives it zesty-ness. My dear husband calls it his "special sauce" for corn but I seem to recall I am always the one making the sauce...hmm.


  • 1/3 cup of butter (remember we don't use the M word around here - cough, cough, margarine)
  • 2 Tablespoons of mustard (plain ol yeller kind)
  • 2 teaspoons of prepared horseradish (this isn't horseradish sauce - you can usually find prepared horseradish with the condiments or the refrigerated section of your grocer)
  • 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon of lemon pepper
  • 6-8 ears of fresh corn
  • Preheat grill for medium heat
  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the mustard, horseradish, Worcestershire, and lemon pepper. Heat until well combined.
  • Place each ear of corn in a 13x12 piece of heavy duty aluminum foil (please, please don't actually measure just a good guess).
  • Drizzle sauce evenly over all the corn and wrap foil loosely leaving space for expansion of steam and seal.
  • Grill over medium heat for 15-20 minutes. Carefully unwrap foil and give it a quick sear on the grill grates.
  • Serve immediately.
