A blue cheese-butter-chive-hot sauce mixture gives grilled corn phenomenal Buffalo-wing flavor. Make sure to turn the corn often so it's evenly grilled, and not overly blackened in any one spot. When summer is gone and fresh ears of corn are hard to come by, make this recipe with frozen corn kernels that you've thawed. Simply heat the corn in a saute pan and then toss with the butter mixture to serve. If you love all that spicy flavor, but not the blue cheese, swap it for crumbled feta cheese instead.
