How to get the taste of wood smoked grilled corn indoors in just a few minutes

We enjoy a beautiful fall in Missouri and in late November and December we’re so caught up in the holidays and seasonal flavors that I hardly have time to notice, but come January, I’m craving corn. Corn is one of our summer staples because it’s a vegetable that all of our girls love and enjoy. With temperatures below freezing, we refrain from grilling outdoors this time of year, but I still long for grilled corn. Fortunately, grilled corn is just as easy indoors!

Ani woke up Monday morning and asked if we could please stay home so that Adalyn could have corn for dinner. She literally begs for it! Of course I obliged {for a number of reasons} and decided to make it in the afternoon so I could photograph the process to share with you. Then I warmed it in the oven – it’s a convenient way to pre-make corn if you’re entertaining.

Indoor grilled corn is just as good as on the grill. It’s adds a little smoky flavor without a lot of effort. I also think it presents beautifully!
