Let me just start off by saying that this is THE BEST corn on the cob you will EVER eat! I'm not exaggerating in the slightest. I made this recipe last night because we just got a new grill, and what's a better way to test out a new grill than with cheeseburgers and corn on the cob?? I saw this featured on the Food Network a few weeks ago on Paula Deen's show (Paula's Home Cooking), so I decided to try it out. The flavor was absolutely incredible. I've never had such a flavorful corn in my entire life! The mayonnaise completely disappears when cooked, leaving you with the juiciest corn you could ever imagine biting into. The Parmesan cheese and chili powder give the corn a slightly spicy and salty burst of flavor. The only fault to this recipe is that some of the Parmesan and chili powder will come off with the foil when you unwrap it, but if you just scrape it off with a knife and spread it back on the corn, it's a super easy fix. My family decided that we will never eat corn another way again! Thank you, Paula Deen!
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 5 ears corn, husks and silk removed
- 1 cup shredded Parmesan Cheese
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon salt

Brush a thin layer of mayonnaise on corn. Sprinkle the corn with cheese, chili powder, salt and pepper. Wrap each corn with foil and place on the grill. Turn occasionally and cook for about 10 minutes (until kernels begin to brown). Serve warm.
