Cooking on the grill has to be one of my very favorite ways to cook! I love that it doesn’t heat up our house. I love that it is (in most cases) less of a mess to clean up. And I really love the extra level of flavor that it adds to any dish that is cooked up out on the BBQ!
Whenever I go to a street festival it is always the grilled corn on the cob booths that lure me in. First it starts when I smell that aromatic grilled scent followed by the beautiful yellow and golden brown with speckles of seasoning all over. Y-u-m! How can you resist?
Is your mouth watering yet? Mine is! I think it is necessary for me to make this again for dinner tonight…
One of my favorite memories growing up is going to a huge farmers market in the summer with my grandma and picking out bunches of fresh fruits and veggies. We of coarse, always brought home bags full of corn on the cob!
Side tip: my grandma would buy as much corn on the cob as she could when it was at a really great price. She would then cook it, cut the cornels off the husk, put them into freezer safe bags, and freeze. When you are ready for corn again, just take out one of the bags, reheat in some hot water, and it tastes just as fresh as the day you bought it!
Corn on the cob on it’s own, is something special but when you take it out and create grilled corn on the cob… you just can not go wrong! Unless, you burn it. That would be really wrong. But don’t worry! I will walk you through it to make sure your corn doesn’t get dried out or burnt.
The Best Way to Make Grilled Corn on the Cob
6 ears of corn
¼ cup parmesan cheese
¼ cup mayonnaise
3 garlic cloves, finely minced
¼ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
Pinch of paprika
¼ cup parmesan cheese for garnish
The first thing you are going to do is remove the husks and hair from the corn.
In a small bowl, mix together ¼ cup parmesan cheese, mayo, garlic, onion powder, salt, pepper, and paprika.
Generously brush mixture over the corn. Wrap them tightly up in foil and now you are ready to bring them out to the grill.
Place the wrapped corn over medium heat out on your BBQ. Let cook for about 10-15 minutes making sure to turn the corn every 4-5 minutes.
Remove from the grill (don’t forget to turn it off. I have wasted a lot of propane not doing this…) and let sit for about 5 minutes before serving.
What will you be serving your grilled corn with? I could make an entire meal just out of this corn! Let me know what your sides will be in the comments bellow. Let’s chat!
