Parmesan Cheese Corn on the Cob - Side Dishes from the Grill

Believe it or not... This was a lunch.  Nothing else, just wonderful fresh sweet corn hot off the grill.

You probably have seen the commercial for the dog snacks where the cartoon dog goes storming around the house mumbling "BACON, BACON, BACON, Gotta have some BACON".  Well, picture me doing the same thing about sweet corn... This time of year I gotta have some sweet corn!

Just last week I did a post on Grilled Corn on the Cob - Simple Recipe for Fresh Corn.  As you can see from this photo, I usually grill my corn in the husk.  Just looks more authentic.  But yesterday i bought a dozen ears that had already been stripped of the hairs and husks.  No problem, just used aluminum foil to wrap the ears.  I have tried grilling corn without husks or foil and have not been happy with the results.  Takes all of the liquid out.  Me, I like Sweet Juicy corn... use something (husks or foil) between the HOT grate and the corn.

As you can see in the photos from this cook session, I got plenty of grill marks and yet had very tender juicy kernels.


OK... Here's what I did...

Parmesan Cheese Corn on the Cob

  • 6 Ears of Fresh Peaches and Cream CORN
  • 1/4 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, FInely Minced and crushed into paste
  • 1 Pinch Coarse Grind Salt
  • Additional 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese for garnish
  • Pinch of Paprika for garnish
Cooking Directions
  1. Remove all husks, hairs from each ear of corn.
  2. Mix 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese, Mayo, Garlic and Salt together. Generously brush this mixture on the corn.
  3. Wrap each ear tightly in Aluminum Foil
  4. Grill over HIGH DIRECT Heat on the grill, turning about 3 minutes per side,
  5. Allow to rest for a couple of minutes before unwrapping.
  6. Just before serving, garnish with additional cheese and Paprika
  7. Serve HOT and Enjoy!
