THE MOST AMAZING OVEN ROASTED CORN

Preheat oven to 400!  
Very generously season your corn on the cobs with kosher salt and pepper.  Add a pat of butter to the tops and roast on a small jellyroll pan (lined with nonstick foil) for 35-45 minutes, or until starting to brown!  While it's cooking,  turn the corn occasionally.  Simple and completely amazing!!!

I do this on a grill...only I rub with olive oil and salt/pepper. My grill is not currently working!! I will have to try this because I was panicked a bit about how I was going to have my roasted seasoned corn w/out my grill!!!

Try sprinkling a little cumin and chili powder. When it's done, add crumbled feta. YUMMY!

We also do this on the bbq. We add onion and garlic powder as well.

I do this on the bbq & I use a little butter, some lime zest, the seasoning used for carne asada sprinkled and pepper. Once finished, I add the lime juice from the zested lime, melted butter & a little parmesan cheese. Delicious!!

Try spreading your corn with mayonnaise (I'm in the South, so Duke's is standard in my house) and sprinkle with hot pepper flakes. It sounds strange, but it's unbelievably delicious!

We're used to doing it on the grill, but I like the idea of being able to do it in the oven.

You can do this on the grill with the husks on just soak the whole corn cob in salt water for as hour before hand and put on the grill and when ready to eat just take off the husk mate due to rotate on the grill frequently our husk will burn.

We grill it and use garlic salt.

I love it grilled but don't like starting up the grill just for corn. This would be a great recipe to use for grilled corn that I cut off the cob and mix with avocado, cucumber, jicama, cilantro, and lime juice.

Sounds delish, Samantha!

We grill in the husk... pull down husk, wrap in bacon, pull husk back up. This oven idea would be great with butter and dry ranch seasoning.

To Blue Skies, the bacon idea sounds interesting. Do you first soak the corn with the husk in water and for how long? Then peel back the husk and wrap the bacon? Do you use one strip of bacon per cob? Also, are you adding any butter or is the grease from the bacon enough for the flavor? Also, doing it with the bacon could you do it in the oven or just on the grill?

I love grilled corn. But for everyday quick corn, the microwave is amazing. Stumbled on a youtube video. 6 minutes per ear (I have used this formula for 2-6 ears and it worked) on high. Leave corn in the husk. Do not remove.

When done, cut at the base right above the little pokey part. Serrated knife works best. Then grasp at other end with a hot matt and shake out the corn. Takes 2-4 shakes and it just pops right out. No strings left on it even.

Delicious flavor.

Do I need to soak the corn in water for an hour or so before I put it in the oven? Or can I just buy the frozen corn on the cob and use that.

DANIELLE said...

I have only made this with fresh corn and did not need to soak.

Love doing this! I put fresh dill sprigs on top and spray a little olive oil on top as well.
