My preferred method of cooking corn on the cob is, by far, on the grill. However, there are times when it is not possible or very inconvenient to do so. So, I want to share with you my back-up method of cooking corn. It is perfect for cooking a large quantity of corn (think parties!) and it could not be easier! I really prefer this over the boiling method.
This oven baked corn yields amazing results and requires just a few simple steps. Essentially all you have to do is preheat the oven, wrap up each piece of corn in foil, and let it bake. That’s IT! I told you it was easy! I am simplistic when it comes to corn in that I do not add butter, but if you would like you can add the butter before you wrap it up and bake.
Oven Baked Corn on the Cob
- Fresh corn on the cob (husk/silks removed)
- (optional) Salt and/or butter
1) Preheat the oven to 350F. If using butter, lightly add a small amount of butter/salt to each ear of corn. Wrap each one in foil and place on a baking tray.
2) Bake for 30-35 minutes, turning halfway through. Remove from oven and enjoy!
