makes six ears
6 ears of corn
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons butter, softened
2 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
3-4 ounces cotija cheese, crumbled
fresh cilantro for garnish
Preheat your grill on the highest setting. Shuck corn ears and brush
each with olive oil and sprinkle with pepper. Wrap each in a square of
aluminum foil – just so there is one layer cover 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 cotija cheese on 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. Serve with a brush for
the bacon butter, the plate of cotija to roll the corn in, and a bunch
of fresh cilantro for garnish.
