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
- 1/2 cup mayo
- 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 2 Tbsp dried basil (or 4 Tbsp fresh, minced)

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.
