Grilled Parmesan Corn on the Cob

How do you make something like corn on the cob bad for you?  Easy, spread a little mayonnaise on it and sprinkle it with parmesan cheese.  Leave it to Paula Deen to create something as scrumptious and indulging as this!  I happened to catch an episode where she made corn on the cob on the grill this way and I knew, without a doubt, I needed to try it.  I immediately told Chris what I saw and he immediately started to drool!  Oh yea, the next day I went to the store with the intent on getting corn and corn alone.  That night...I made the corn this way....and I hate to say it...but I really want corn on the cob prepared no other way!  I have myself convinced that it's better then all the butter I slop all over my corn.  I mean I'm only using half a tablespoon or less of mayo on each cob and I probably use a good two tablespoons of butter (at least) by the time it's all said and yea, much healthier this way. :)  I'm telling you, this corn is out of this world, cheesy good!  You can actually use any seasonings you want on this, but I'll tell you, I've tried it a couple of different ways and using parmesan, salt and pepper, and cayenne is my favorite!  It's just adds that little kick that I like so much!!

Gosh, I could do this on the stovetop grill. We just started getting Colorado sweet corn a few days ago. It's a highly anticipated event in our summer plans.

This sounds really delicious. Corn and parmesan should work wonderfully well together. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

I've seen Paula do this & have wanted to try it too, but due to my mayo aversion I've not done so yet. I'm gonna have to grow up & get over this mayo thing so I can try this corn!!!
