Grilled Avocado Street Corn: it’s going to be my summer side dish of choice! (and ps - there's a giveaway at the end!) 

I’ve never met someone who loves street corn quite as much as my best friend Matt. The minute we were done shooting these he took all of them, added extra mayo, extra lime and extra salt (he’s my spirit animal) and devoured a few within the blink of an eye. It was basically the crowning moment of my week. I love it when my recipes hit the spot and people go to town. As a chef, there is seriously no better feeling.

This particular street corn is light-years ahead of the rest for many reasons:

1: KRAFT Avocado Oil Mayo gives you that extra avocado bonus and ya’ll know I live for an avocado moment. Plus this new variety of KRAFT Mayo delivers the delicious taste of Mayo and is made with avocado oil that contains 232 mg of Omega-3 ALA in every serving. AVOCADO GUYS!!! This is EVERYTHING. It’s better for you which means we can have more Grilled Avocado Street Corn in our lives!!

2: Bacon. It’s the right thing to do. Crisp up a piece of bacon and either crumble it or chop it into basically bacon dust and then sprinkle it on top.

3: Chives. If you’ve been a long time reader of WGC, you’re aware of my love for chives. They are the best herbs to finish a dish in my humble opinion!! With all the summer BBQ’s ahead, bookmark this recipe and then get ready for everyone to be obsessed.

Pretty awesome right?!? Now here's your change to win that super sexy grill pan you always see on my snaps + insta stories!  All you have to do is make this life-changing summer friendly recipe, post a pic on instagram, tag @whatsgabycookin in the pic + in the caption and you're entered to win! It's perfect to make this corn if you don't have or don't want to fire up an outside grill!

  1. 5 stars
    HOLY SMOKES. This is so good. This recipe taught me the brilliance of slathering on mayo to ears of corn. Who knew that was a thing? It is amazing. We made this all summer long for family gatherings on our patio. I love the tip about keeping the husks on to make it easy to eat. Major game changer! Go ahead and make this right away before any more time passes in your life!

  2. Wow, does this look amazing, or what!!?? I am dying to try this! I've always been a fan of corn, bur rarely do I dress it up beyond butter and salt 🙂

  3. I've only gotten street corn from the vendors with pushcarts tooting their horn before (we actually have one that comes by my neighborhood!). I'd love to try this on my own, maybe take it off the cob for a nice side salad for carne asada. Yum!
