"I can't remember where I first read this recipe.. I know it was from another recipe site. I am not trying to steal it I just want to pass it on because it is so darn good. I love butter on corn BUT if you want it just a bit lighter this is for you! Instead of hot sauve I love to use Cajun, Tex-Mex or other peppy spice mix in the mayo."

Well zippity do dah! This corn has a little zip that we love. The lil guy ate his plain with parm cheese but me and my hubby indulged and had 2 ears each! I just adjusted the recipe and I used regular mayo instead of the light and Frank's Red Hot for the hot sauce.
