Revolutionary Oven-Roasted Corn on the Cob

Share It!

Dang, that’s a lot of hyperbole in the title, ain’t it?  OR IS IT?!  Hint: It’s. Not.

When I tell you that this recipe is revolutionary, you can understand it to mean that it has revolutionized the way I think of cooking corn; I will never, never ever never, boil my corn on the cob again.  I will certainly grill my corn (and so will you, once you try it), but I’m leaving the boiling to whomever would like to pick it up at the curb. From here on out, it’s oven-roasted or grilled for me and mine.

Cue fireworks!

Revolutionary Oven-Roasted Corn on the Cob

Can you hear the fake explosions?  No?  Make this and I promise, you will.


Basically you do the same thing as if you’re preparing to grill the corn:

Peel back husks and take off the silk.

Pull the husks back up to protect corn while cooking:

At this point, no need to tie each husk with twine or soak win a water bath like you do when you grill the corn.  Simply lay them on a cookie sheet and place in a 350° oven.  The mood lighting in the oven is very romantic.

Roast for 30-35 minutes.  When they’re done, they look like this, pre-husked (I swear that front one winked at me):

Take out of oven, husk, salt and butter, place in a bowl, then watch yo hands, momma!  Your family is gonna eat these up!

WORTH NOTING: These oven-roasted babies were the easiest cobs I’ve ever husked in all my husking days.  The husks almost slid off.  EASY!

I don’t know if it was the method or the fresh corn, but Garry and I agreed: these were superior to boiling.  We made yummy noises the entire time we were eating (well, I did).

Rev-OH-lu-tion…wait for it…ary!

Cookout coming up?  Family BBQ?   Add corn to the list and oven-roast those badboys.  You won’t be sorry.

Happy revolution, y’all!

    Adam put “corn on the cob” on the menu for this week. I’ll have to share this recipe with him…he’ll eat it up! (Hee, hee.)

  2. We’ve boiled and grilled, but never roasted in the oven. We’ll be trying this soon!

  3. I always think roasted corn is better than boiled. Going to try this!

  4. I LOVE corn on the cob. Will have to try this! I normally grill mine with fresh rosemary, but my boyfriend said he didn’t like the rosemary taste so I am going to try your way instead. (Love the way you write, by the way!)

  5. I have been eating so much corn and guacamole lately….I cannot get enough of it. I will definitely have to try this…PS: I still haven’t made it to Costco, since I ma heading out of town…Next week it will be a BIG trip. 😉 Happy Monday!

    • Summer = eating ALL THE CORN AND GUACAMOLE! We have been in need of a good Costco trip, although the last time I was there they had a giant sheet cake that stated it contained 2.5 pounds of custard filling. I fear I’m gonna buy that cake.

  6. Where was this yesterday!! Oh well. Plenty of summer left to try it out!

  7. If I know Sweetie, this’ll be a weekly side for sure!! Thanks for the post. BB2u

  8. I’ve tried this method once and totally failed. Love your step-by step pictures, and I can’t wait to try it again!! Still have to wait a bit for corn to be reeeeaaally good around here though.

    • I’ve got to make a run to the market soon, so I’ll pick up morn corn. I want to make it again to see if it was a fluke, but I can’t imagine that it was because it was so good. Here’s hoping the corn comes in soon for y’all!

  9. Never thought of this! Cannot wait to try it!

  10. Mmmmm! We live in an apt in the city and don’t have the outdoor room for a grill and I have so sorely missed grilled corn on the cob. I’m going to try this!

  11. Thanks for the great recipe and for linking up at Wonderful Wed. Blog Hop. Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

  12. Wow, I have never once considered roasting corn! And now I feel so stupid. I will definitely be trying this out very soon.
