I tried this twice now since Greg posted it, cause it sounds great, BUT....I gotta be honest, it aint at all the best corn i ever had. Maybe I just like boiled corn in a little sugar and salt water, but has anyone else tried this and raved about it?


Here is the cheesy corn. I got it from Sandra Lee.

Show: Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee
Episode: BBQ Hoedown

6 ears corn
1 stick butter, softened
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 packet creamy cheese sauce mix (or powdered cheese packet from boxed macaroni and cheese)

Preheat outdoor grill or preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Shuck corn. If desired, leave husks attached to cob to use as holders.

In a small bowl, combine softened butter, chili powder, and cheese sauce mix or powdered cheese packet.

Spread butter on corn and wrap each ear individually in foil.

Place on grill and close lid or place in the oven. Cook 25 to 30 minutes, turning every 5 minutes, or until corn is tender. Remove foil and serve.
Sorry Parrothead, maybe its me, most recipes and new stuff I see here are wonderful. But I dont see the magic here.

I totally missed this one the first time around. Since corn is starting to come in I'll give this a try.

I like to steam corn standing up in a large pot with a basket. We put some Old Bay in the water. Nice flavor.

It's just a good change if you grow up on a farm and eat sweet corn every single night for a month.

My absolute favorite is deep fried in peanut oil.

Well not as many as I thought.

Here's one, but it isn't much. I will find the corn on the cob thread from last week or whenever and add to it.

Tried this over the weekend, I think RichardF will absolutely love this corn recipe...

Grilled the corn, then instead of butter used MAYO, sprinkle with grated parmasean cheese, then squeeze a wedge of lime over the cob. It was fanfarkintastic, we will be doing this again in the near future. My 4 year old ate 2 cobs...
