“On the streets of Santa Maria, California, street vendors (think an ice cream man with a 'trash can' full of hot corn on the cob instead of ice cream) roam the sidewalks selling corn on the cob for a dollar an ear! They slide a wooden skewer in one end for you to hold the corn. We crave it often and it's become a regular on our Saturday grill nights! Give it a try. You'll be surprised!” - by rOckabLe
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil and gently place ears of corn into the boiling water. Reduce heat to low and simmer until corn is very tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
- Remove an ear of corn with tongs and spread about 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise all over the kernels. Squeeze about 1 tablespoon of margarine over the ear of corn in a zig-zag line, turning the ear as you squeeze. Generously sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the ear and dust with chili powder. Repeat with remaining ears of corn.

Cut off the bottom of the cob and using a kitchen towel squeeze the small end. The corn slides out without a single piece of silk. The butter / mayonnaise along with the cheese form a perfect crust."
"I have been eating and serving this corn for years. The way it is done here is basically the same except the corn is roasted on the grill and dipped in butter first. This corn is soo good.

We also make this with frozen or canned corn when fresh corn is not available. Just adjust the amounts of ingredients to taste. Don't forget to drain the corn completely first. Happy Eating!"
