Grilled Cheese Corn on the Cob
• 8 to 12 ears of fresh corn
• 1 cup butter (let it sit out and get soft before mixing)
• 1/2 cup parmesan cheese (grated and not the soft shredded which will burn)
• 1/2 cup mayonnaise
• 1/2 tsp garlic powder
• 1/2 tsp onion salt
Mix the cheese butter up first and let it chill for an hour or two before getting the corn on the cob ready to grill.
Put the softened butter, cheese, mayonnaise, garlic powder, and onion salt in a bowl and whip with a mixer. Then put the mixture in the refrigerator and let it “set” for at least an hour.
Husk and take the silks off the corn on the cob.
Get the cheese butter out and lather each ear well with the mixture.
Place one ear of corn in a good sized piece of heavy duty or grilling tin foil. You need enough to fully wrap the ear of corn.
Grill on low heat for 20 minutes or so turning every so often until done.
If you’re not sure if the corn is done, stick a fork through the tin foil and pierce an ear of corn. If it “gives” easily and feels tender, then it’s done. If not, let it cook a little longer.
The ears can be slide over to the side to stay warm while the meat is grilling. If you’re using a gas grill, then just put the corn on the top rack away from the direct heat.
