Smoky Parmesan Corn on the CobThis corn could save the world; it’s that good. No seriously, I wouldn’t lie to you. After a Social Summer Dinner at The Endless Meal Supper Club last week the editor of The Daily Secret tweeted, “I have been talking, all day to anybody who will listen, about how good your parmesan corn was last night!:)”

I’ve baked the corn in foil packets in the oven and they were sweet and amazing. I’ve roasted them on high in the oven out of their foil packets and they were extra smokey and delicious. I’ve cooked them over a campfire and …. you get where this is going. They’re amazing every way you make them.

If you are throwing a dinner party cook the corn in foil packets in the oven. They’ll stay warm for at least a half hour after you take them out so you have some leeway while getting everything else organized.

Hey Jaz,

You’ll find this recipe really easy to make and it will definitely be a hit. Do wrap them in foil before putting them on the grill.

They can be made (buttered and wrapped) a day before. Keep them in your fridge until you’re ready to grill them.

Enjoy!

Just wanted to let you know I tried this tonight on some fresh corn.. grilled it up; used your recipe, but used chipotle seasoning, instead of paprika.. and added cilantro and a touch of lime juice.. otherwise no change.. partially un-husked the corn, grilled on medium for 12 min (rotated 3 times) and when the cob had been inhaled.. the drippings of chipotle/parmesan/cilantro and garlic were soaked up with a lovely cut of grilled sirloin.. Oh> My< GOODNESS! Fresh flavor! Thank you!!!

This looks so great. Even better bc we don’t have a grill. Do you take the husk off bc ur wrapping them in aluminum or do I leave the husk on?

Hi Christina,

Do take the husk off before wrapping them in the foil :)
