This CHEESY CORN SIDE DISH goes perfectly with grilled main courses, especially chicken or steak. If you’re looking for a new way of serving barbecued corn, give this unique recipe a try.

I find the flavours in this especially refreshing because it blends the sweetness of barbecued corn, the tang of fresh lime juice and the richness of both butter and Feta cheese.

The recipe is simple and straightforward, so I’ll only offer these two important tips:

1) Head to our YouTube Channel and check out my CORNY KITCHEN TIP. This video will show you an amazing way to take corn off the cob.

2) The true flavours of this dish are best achieved when you use peaches and cream corn, and a firm Feta cheese that isn’t too salty. Seek them out and you shall taste!

A CHEESY CORN SIDE DISH that’s both easy to prepare and tastes good – who could ask for anything more?

    For the cheesy corn dish can I use frozen corn

    • Nik Manojlovich says:

      Hi Brenda… thanks for writing in. For sure you can substitute with frozen corn – just blanch it first and also, make sure it’s strained, you don’t want the corn too wet… it’ll make the side dish runny. Let us know how it works out!!!!

Ingredients & Amounts

  • 6 ears of corn, shucked
  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons of freshly chopped parsley
  • juice of one lime
  • ½ cup Feta cheese, grated
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Preheat barbecue to 450°F. Shuck the ears of corn, rub with a damp cloth to remove any hairs, and then lightly brush with vegetable oil. Transfer corn to hot grill and allow to cook for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally.
  2. While corn is grilling, prepare the remaining ingredients: fine-chop the parsley, juice the lime and grate the Feta cheese.
  3. Once the corn is cooked, remove it from the grill and carefully slice kernels off the cob, reserving them in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add butter, lime juice, chopped parsley and cheese. Stir until butter melts, then add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
Listen on MUSIC

Listening to great music is an important part of every Weekend at the Cottage. I thought some relaxed jazz would be perfect when everyone gathers around the table to enjoy. Visit iTunes to enjoy Light As a Feather – Chick Corea, an early album by this talented jazz pianist.
