On the Grill:
  1. Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat (around 450 degrees F).
  2. Pull off six pieces of sheet foil, each about a foot long.
  3. Place one ear of corn on each sheet and evenly coat each ear with 1/2 tablespoon of butter.
  4. Evenly sprinkle seasoning over the whole corn. (Feel free to add more, to taste)
  5. Roll each ear in foil and twist ends together.
  6. Place packets on grill and cook for 10-15 minutes on each side, until kernels are tender.
  7. Remove packets from grill, leave wrapped until ready to serve.
  8. Open carefully (corn and steam inside may be hot), sprinkle each ear with parmesan and serve with additional seasoning, if desired.
Oven Baked Foil Packets:
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare corn in foil pack as outlined above in the "On the Grill" section. Place each packet on rimmed baking sheet, foil seam side up. Bake 30-40 minutes or until kernels are tender. Remove foil packs from oven, leave wrapped until ready to serve. Open carefully, sprinkle each ear with parmesan and serve with additional seasoning, if desired.
Slow Cooker Foil Packets:

Leave corn wrapped in foil until ready to serve. Open carefully, sprinkle each ear with parmesan and serve with additional seasoning, if desired.
"Reinvent" Leftovers:
