Day 1: Cheese on the Cob!

Since I had all of the ingredients (or thought I did!) I decided to start with Cheese on the Cob by Paula Deen. My rendition of this recipe was delicious!

I came to my spice cupboard and do you think I had chili powder? Nope. Just every other spice imaginable! I was not interested in heading to the grocery store so I substituted with a sprinkling of paprika, cumin, and a swirl of
Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce (love that stuff!) I also neglected to read the recipe right and regardless of having both grated and shredded Parmesan, I used the grated. If you look at the recipe you'll see it says shredded. Whatever, it was amazing! I'm so glad I BBQ'd two cobs with this recipe!

Here is the original recipe:


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 5 ears corn, husks and silk removed
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan
  • Chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Prepare grill.

Brush a thin layer of mayonnaise on corn. Sprinkle the corn with cheese, chili powder, salt and pepper. Wrap each corn with foil and place on the grill. Turn occasionally and cook for about 10 minutes (until kernels begin to brown). Serve warm.

You can always make the same substitutions (ahem...mistakes!) that I made too and I promise it will be delicious! Enjoy!

I am really not sure how I feel about like painting mayo onto my corn. I despise mayo. Can you tell it is mayo?

Abby, you really can't tell it's mayo. It just appears and tastes buttery! :) You could always just use butter instead.
