Fabulous Freelancer Foodie Recipe: Cheesy Grilled Corn

While the standard corn on the cob makes for a great side dish, this tasty cheesy grilled corn recipe could be a meal in itself!

Note: this recipe is adapted from one by America’s Test Kitchen, as it was found in the July 10, 2019 issue of The Salem News.


  • 6 ears of corn, with the husks and silk removed, but the stalks left intact.
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • ½ cup of mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup of crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon of lime juice
  • Lime wedges
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. Adjust an oven rack so that it’s 5 inches from the oven’s broiler element, and heat the broiler.
  2. Use aluminum foil to line a rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Thoroughly brush the corn with the olive oil, then transfer the corn to the baking sheet.
  4. Broil the corn on one side for about 10 minutes until it’s well-browned.
  5. Turn the corn over and broil an additional 10 minutes until that other side is also well-browned.
  6. Whisk the mayonnaise, lime juice, feta, garlic, cilantro, chili powder, and 1 teaspoon of salt together in a bowl until they’ve been completely combined.
  7. Remove the broiled corn from the oven, and evenly brush the mayonnaise mixture on all sides of the corn.
  8. Put the corn back into the oven to continue broiling with regular rotation for about 2 minutes until the coating is browned.
  9. When the broiling is complete, season the corn with salt and pepper.
  10. Serve the corn with lime wedges and any remaining mayonnaise mixture for additional flavor according to preference.
