I attended my first Eggfest yeasterday and had a very good time!! I would really like the recipe for the Mayo spread used on the corn on the cob by the 57th restaurant group. They consistently had the longest line for a reason.....That was some good stuff!!!! Thanks

    Can't help you with the recipe but after cooking with and w/o husks, with spreads of all kinds. With butter and with oil. We have went back to basic of clean off husk and s&p only on the grill direct for corn on the cob. Very easy and very good (imo)....

    Look up recipes for Mexican grilled corn on the cob. Lime juice, chipolte and mayo generally are the key ingredients. Very mild white cheese is often put on top.

    From Food Network

    • 8 ears corn
    • 4 fresh limes, quartered
    • Garlic butter, recipe follows
    • 1/2 cup grated cotija cheese
    • 2 tablespoons chopped chives, for garnish


    Preheat grill to medium. Peel back the husks of the corn without removing them. Remove the silks and recover the corn with the husk. Soak in large bowl of cold water for 30 minutes. Remove corn from water and shake off excess. Place the corn on the grill, close the cover and grill for 15 to 20 minutes.

    Unwrap corn and brush with the garlic butter. Sprinkle with the cotija cheese and squeeze with lime. Sprinkle with chopped chives, to garnish.

    Garlic Butter:

    • 2 sticks unsalted butter, slightly softened
    • 8 cloves garlic, peeled and coarsely chopped
    • 1/4 habanero pepper, seeded
    • 1/4 bunch fresh chives
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Combine butter, garlic, habanero, and chives in a food processor and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside until ready to use.

  • We were there too. The mayo was mayo, lime, cilantro and jalapeños. Don't know the measurements. HTH!

  • Grilled first then rolled in mayo sauce and then Parmesan cheese. Sorry forgot that part.
