The Best Ever Oven Roasted Corn

The Best Ever Oven Roasted Corn is prepped and ready to go in the oven in just 10 minutes.  #makeahead #summer #recipe #corn #oven @SlowRoasted Recipe - http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2014/04/the-best-ever-oven-roasted-corn-recipe.html

The Best Ever Oven Roasted Corn is prepped and ready to go in the oven in just 10 minutes.  This recipe is so simple you will be making it all year long!

Grilling season is upon us at last, here in Arizona!  I am so excited for spring and summer, even though technically I could grill all year long in Arizona, there is just something that is ALL right when I am grilling when everything is lush and green.

I had my in-laws over a few weeks ago and decided to break out the grill and cook up some ribeyes for my mother-in-laws retirement dinner.  Corn and potatoes are the perfect sides for this midwestern family, but I already had my hands full with dessert.  Simple oven roasted corn on the cob was perfectly easy and freed me up to chat and prepare dessert.

Honestly, I may just start roasting it in the oven. It is crazy easy.  Sweet corn made even more fabulous by roasting int he oven.  Perfect corn prepped in just 10 minutes.  Simply preheat oven and place corn on a baking sheet, smeared with butter and generously seasoned with salt and pepper.

I can not imagine a corn sweeter or easier.  I can't wait to make it again.  You are going to love it too!

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

The Best Ever Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts.  This is the only recipe you will ever need.  I have never liked Brussels sprouts.  Until now.  Oh and I ate the entire 2 pound batch of Brussels in one day.  I may need a Brussels intervention.

PRINT RECIPE

The Best Ever Oven Roasted Corn
SERVES 8  |  ACTIVE TIME 10 Min  |  TOTAL TIME 55 Minutes
 
8 ears corn, cleaned
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature
kosher salt, to taste
fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Place corn on baking sheet.  Reserve about 1/2 of the butter.  Spread remaining butter on the whole ear of corn.  Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper (I use about 1 teaspoon of each).

Bake for 30-45 minutes, until starting to brown.  Turn corn occasionally. Remove from oven and spread remaining butter over the top of the corn.  Sprinkle with more pepper as desired.

Serve and enjoy!

COOK'S NOTE:  We also love to add a dash of cayenne pepper.  The best way to do that is to place 4 tablespoons butter in a small dish.  Add desired  amount of cayenne pepper and mix together. Smear butter on corn and then continue with recipe.

  1. Can you believe my husband doesn't like butter on his corn? Strange, I know. Me...I'd devour this!! Do you think I could cook some without butter or maybe rub a little olive oil on his?

    1. Hi Kim! Thanks for stopping by. I love love love butter, so I am with you. But, as long as you have some oil on the corn to keep it from drying out, it will roast perfectly. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

    6. When I lived in Mexico they put mayonnaise on the corn and then sprinkled it with grated cheese. The best corn I've ever eaten.

  2. I've never tried this Donna - but you know I will soon! We love roasted vegetables of all kinds so I'm sure this will be an instant favorite.

  3. I've been roasting corn in the oven for years. I leave it in the husks and don't soak the corn or anything. Just put it on a baking sheet and and bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees and you have the most moist, succulent corn you could imagine.

  4. Your roasted corn looks delishous. I can't wait to try it. I hope my grocery store has some nice fresh Ca. grown corn in when I go. I have corn growing in my back yard garden and can hardly wait till I have some ready to pick. Yum
    Thank you Donna

  6. I am so excited to try this! Grilling season is very short in Wisconsin, and I really don't care for boiling the ears. This sounds tasty and like a great year round way to enjoy corn!

  9. I use my George foreman grill with husk on killer corn

  10. I roast my corn, with olive oil wrapped individually in foil. It is the BEST ever. I also roast Brussels sprouts, onion, garlic on cookie sheet with olive oil, salt , pepper.....delish. Also, cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, asparagus, string beans.....you name it! Been doing this for years.

  11. I use the microwave...husks on run under water and shake well...3 min. 30 seconds, per corn...never tasted anything better,,:)

    1. I also use microwave..wrap each ear in a few paper towels, soak with water, and it is always delicious...

  12. This recipe is delicious. I have made it several times. It is so buttery and yummy, I like it this way better than on the grill! Thanks!

  13. I too roast it in the oven all the time. The only thing that I do that is slightly different is I add a little fresh ( or dried) rosemary to the salt and pepper. This adds a unique and slightly even sweeter result !

  14. Do you "bake" or "broil" the corn, as far as the oven setting? Looking forward to trying this and surprising my wife!

  15. I have microwaved corn on the husk before. I don't like butter on corn. The corn I always had as I grew up is one with lemon juice, cayenne pepper or black pepper and salt on it.

  16. Do you think frozen corn will work too?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I have never tried frozen corn, I would think it would be too drying for frozen, as frozen corn will release some of its liquid content as it thaws. You can cook frozen corn in a skillet with some butter and it tastes wonderful! Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

  17. You can microwave corn in the husk and remove every silk by cooking it then cutting the back end of the ear off first. Hold up by the husk where the silk is. It will be hot. The ear of corn will slip right out where you made the cut. Now trim other end of ear. No silks to remove all in husks. Times vary to cook. 2-4 min. Depending on wattage of oven.

  18. I prefer putting the whole corn in the oven, husks and all, and then after it's cooked pulling the husk down and using it as a handle. I got fresh prepackaged corn with no husk, however, and found this recipe. It's in the oven now. Smells and looks really good.

  19. I've been microwaving whole ears of corn in the husk for a few years. While it is simple and pretty foolproof, I'll bet the oven roasting enhances the sweetness and provides a bit of crunch from the browning process. Next time I see fresh corn this will be on the dinner table. Corn is my husband's favorite veggie, so I'm sure he will have no complaints.

  20. Is there anything better than roasted corn? Gorgeous pics!

  21. Have been wrapping ears of corn and butter in foil and roasting in oven until slightly brown here and there for years. Delicious!!!! Oven should be at about 400. Frozen corn mostly. Frozen is quickest!!!!

  22. This gets me excited for summer! Makes me feel like it's practically here. Of course now I don't have to wait for warm weather for perfectly cooked corn.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I used this recipe and it was a hit. I never seen corn leave so fast from the pan. My grand-daughters loved it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh this was so much easier than individually wrapping the ears! It was wonderful. I did 2 pans worth. On the 2nd pan, I lightly sprinkled chili powder, lime juice and parmesan cheese. *groan* I could live on this.
