A Cheesy, Corny Side Dish (AKA Cheesy Corn on the Cob)

I’ve told you before that one of my husband’s favorite side dishes is corn.  I might even go out on a limb and say he could make an entire meal out of corn, but it might need a bit of meat in it somehow.  Maybe this is something I could work on…

Back in 2009 when we first started dating, I was at his mom’s house and we all got off watching Paula Deen cooking something on the Food Network.  By attempting to google and find this recipe for you, I found it on her website; I didn’t find it on FN so who knows which episode it really was on, the main thing is this corn is to die for!

I still  have the note in my iPhone where I wrote down the ingredients and what to do – It is that simple!  Sometimes Simple=Fabulous, this time that motto doesn’t lie!  But at the same time, I can’t lie in the fact when we first watched her and heard her talking about this recipe, we thought she was out of her mind.

The ingredients:
Corn on the cob, shucked
Chili Powder
Salt
Pepper
Mayo
Parmesan Cheese

That is an interesting combo of ingredients, that’s for sure!

So first up after shucking the corn out of the husks, you’ll slather it with mayo.

Sprinkle it with Chili powder.  A nice thin coat.  That was the ear after I put the CP on it.

Some black pepper.  Trying to watch what I was doing through a view finder on a camera I got my black pepper a bit thick but it still tasted GREAT!

Some Salt.

Lots of Parmesan Cheese

And the best tip is to do this all over the aluminum foil you’ll wrap it in, that way when you wrap it in nice and tight those flavors will all be there extra :).  Anyway as you can see you’ll wrap it in aluminum foil.  Place it on a 350 degree grill or else in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.

And viola!  Corn on the cob Paula Deen style!  And it’s fabulous!

Have you ever tried it this way?  What did you think?
