Grilled Corn with Parmesan and Cayenne

Nothing says summertime like corn on the cob, and when grilled and rolled in cheese, it's sweet, messy nirvana. We have a new fan favorite in the sides department.


  • Coarse salt

  • Pepper

  • 4 ears corn

  • 1/4 cup mayo

  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 teaspoon parsely, finely chopped

  • Lime wedges, for serving


  1. Heat grill to high. Place cheese on a plate or in a shallow bowl; set aside.

  2. Season with salt and pepper. Grill, turning every 2 to 3 minutes, until tender and slightly charred, 10 to 12 minutes; let cool 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Brush corn with mayonnaise, and roll in cheese to coat. Sprinkle with chili powder; serve with lime wedges.
