Italian Street Corn

Is there such a thing as Italian Street Corn?  I'm not sure. . .this recipe is adapted from a recipe for Mexican Street Corn, which calls for cilantro and queso fresca.  I didn't have either of those on hand, so I substituted for basil and parmesan cheese.  Thus making it Italian instead of Mexican.

Right?  Indulge me anyway.

The flavor was perfect!  I loved the kick from the cayenne, it was just enough for me.  Next time I'm going to cook the corn on the grill, and it should be even better.

  • 4 cobs of corn
  • butter
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tbsp dried basil (or 4 Tbsp fresh, minced)
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • salt and pepper
Preheat your oven to 400degs F. Butter the corn, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Bake for about 20-25 minutes.  While the corn is cooking, combine the mayo, cheese, basil, cayenne pepper, and lime juice.  When the corn is done, slice the kernals off with a sharp knife (use a large bowl or dish to keep the kernals contained), and mix the hot corn with the mayo mixture.

On The Cob Version: Slather the hot corn with mayo, then sprinkle with cheese and basil, pressing it into the corn to make it stick.
