MiMi's Favorite Grilled Corn On The Cob


4 ears of corn on the cob
Cooking Spray
Salt 
Pepper

Pull back the husks on each ear of corn, leaving them attached at the base of the ear.

Remove all of the "silks" on each ear of corn.

Spray each ear of corn with cooking spray and then season with desired amount of salt and pepper.

Pull the husks back up to close each ear of corn and then tie each ear tightly with a piece of cooking twine.


Place on hot grill for approximately 20-30 minutes (or until desired doneness) -- turning often.


While the corn is grilling, gather the remaining ingredients that you will need for toppings for your corn.

Sour Cream
Mayonnaise
Parmesan Cheese
Chili Powder
1 Lime

Mix together equal amounts of sour cream and mayonnaise. 

Slice lime into 8 slices. 

Place all toppings - mayo/sour cream mixture, Parmesan Cheese, Chili Powder and lime slices in small containers for serving.

Remove corn from grill when cooked to desired doneness.

Pull back husks to expose corn. 

Coat each ear with mayo/sour cream mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese and Chili Powder. Squeeze lime juice all over corn.

This combination of toppings is just to die for!  You taste a combination of salty, spicy and sweet in EVERY bite!

I guarantee you'll go back for seconds on this one!

These look great. We always boil corn, but I've got to try this this summer. Can't wait until corn is in season around here.

Just stopping by as we are grilling our ears of corn as I type! I'm checking out the recipe again for the sour cream/mayo part and will let you know how they turn out at a high altitude...that sometimes messes up recipes for me, but I think we can pull this one off! It looks fantastic! I'll check back later tonight and let you know how they turned out! Thanks again! Love, Denise :-)

Hi Mimi,

This recipe caught my hubby's attention as he was reading over my shoulder. Looks like we'll be trying it.

Remember I had to see if I could find canned salmon in England? I told you that I did and today I finally made your salmon patties. Yummmooo!! Thanks so much for sharing great recipes.

Blessings to you!

I had to comment on this post....we love grilled corn in the husk, straight from the garden every summer....nothing beats it! But I had to say, you must be a Southern gal when I spotted your "Duke's" mayonaise!! :)
