Ya’ll! It’s time to start talking all things entertaining for football season. Who’s ready for football gatherings, football party food and plenty of fun hours grill gating? Me, me, me, me! It’s no secret my little family enjoys football season and with a bit of focus on college football. Our extended family has their favorite teams we don’t know much about, our little family of 4 has our favorite teams we cheer for like crazy including alumni support and the parents adore our rivals. There are jokes about what team is best and of course I hear the guys toss out stats in a friendly disagreement but there’s never a discussion over the food because the food during football season rocks. Football season after all is about food and grilling, right? This year I wanted to take a classic food item, and my kids favorite vegetable, and take a new approach. Grab the savory grilled corn for football season recipe below including a Pinterest friendly image for bookmarking and other football gathering essentials.
My family enjoys being outdoors, even in the Florida humidity, so grill gating is a family affair. We chat, we watch the kids play, we make sure the pre-football game chat on TV is turned up for all to hear and we soak up the environment. Our neighbors don’t mind and even pop by to say hey if they’re not hosting gatherings.
Kingsford® Charcoal, RITZ®, Glad® Press’n Seal and Dr Pepper® are essential in throwing the perfect fall tailgate gathering, but when paired with the other products, it’s a recipe for TOUCHDOWN! From grilling to snacking while cooking to making sure you have one of everyone’s favorite sip on hand to wrapping up leftover, these products have you covered. After you grab my must have recipe head here to learn more about creating a victory when grilling this football season.
Before we dive into this simple mouth watering grilled corn recipe I wanted to share a fun take away item to create for your guests that only takes minutes to create. Football gift bags for leftovers!
While leftovers are sorta the best thing ever because you don’t have to cook at all the next day while relaxing, take home bags are a sweet gesture for your football watching guests. If you think about it, they came over to watch hours of a game with you and they probably brought a dish or snack so return the love by letting them take home a meal in simple left over football party bags.
To create these bags you’ll need to pick up black bags, chalk and ribbon or paper accessories such as bows during your Walmart shopping visit. Use the chalk to create a fun gift bag by writing your favorite team names, drawing football laces or by writing guests names on them. Attach an embellishment if you like and have it near the food for them to remember to grab a few items before heading home. This football party take away only takes minutes and because watching college football isn’t just for the guys don’t be afraid to snag fancy straws and use one of your favorite tablecloths for your spread.
Now let’s get to this amazing corn! There’s an image to remind you of your must have football party items and a Pinterest friendly image below too.
Savory Grilled Corn
- Corn on the cob (for this recipe I used 4 pieces of corn)
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1 tbsp dill weed
- 2 tbsp garlic salt
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- Combine sugar, paprika, dill weed, garlic salt and butter together. Melt for just a seconds or until the mixture can be blended together with ease.
- Place corn in foil and pour the mixture over the corn. Coat all sides.
- Wrap up the corn and set on the grill to cook for about 20 minutes.
- Remove corn from the wrapping. You’ll notice the mixture has stuck to the corn in certain areas, this is ok.
- Pour any remaining mixture over the corn and set it back on the grill unwrapped just for a few minutes to allow everything to soak in and seal. You’ll notice some sections darken further as it should while being grilled.
- Remove the corn and enjoy!
