Cheese on the Cob


Corn on the Cob is a classic usually topped with some good ‘ol butter. When corn is in season you just can’t beat the taste and freshness. When corn is not in season or I am using frozen corn I like to season it up and bring in new flavors. The use of chili powder brings in a spicy kick, mixed together with freshly ground black pepper and parmesan cheese it takes on a whole new flavor combination. Try it out and let me know what you think!

Cheese on the Cob

2 to 3 ears corn, husks and silk removed

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan


Chili Powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Prepare grill or grill pan.

Brush a thin layer of mayonnaise on corn, or whatever you want to use in order to make the cheese and spices stick. Sprinkle corn with cheese, chili powder, salt and pepper. Wrap each corn with foil, sprayed with cooking spray, and place on grill, or in my case a grill pan. Turn occasionally and cook for about 10 minutes or until kernels begin to brown. Serve warm.
