We loved the grilled corn disks with honey butter that we made recently. Sweet corn is in season here in Indiana, and that’s always a good thing. Nothing beats fresh sweet corn. But, I after eating those yummy little bites dipped in sweet honey and butter, I figured, well, I need something with a bit more kick. So I made grilled corn disks with southwestern butter. Equally as good as the sweet version, but with a little kick. The heat is the perfect contrast to the corn’s natural sweetness.
Leftover butter (if you have any) goes on anything, but it’s specially good on corn bread or biscuits. Also try slathering your grilled corn with some Sriracha mayonnaise. It’s different, but boy is it every good.
