The Easiest Way to cook Corn on the Cob... Ever

anniemade // Super easy way to cook corn on the cob in the oven Okay, so I wouldn't have believed this recipe would be anything great if I had not actually tried it myself last week. This is probably the simplest recipe to make food outside your standard PB&J and the perfect way to make corn on the cob, no matter how many ears you're making.

If you don't believe me on the ease and yummyness of this- just scope out the reviews of the source of the original recipe linked below.

OVEN-ROASTED CORN ON THE COB (via Tyler Florence/Food Network)

Ingredients

  • Fresh ears of corn (we did 4) still in husks
  • 2 tbsp of butter, melted
  • dash of salt and dash of pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Place corn with husks in tact directly on the middle rack inside the oven.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes or until corn is soft.
  4. After baking, the husk should come off cleanly, strings and all, and can be cut off easily with sharp kitchen scissors.
  5. Mix your butter, salt, and pepper in a ramekin and brush on your fresh corn with a pastry brush.

 

If you want to, you can get creative with the toppings (garlic powder, cayenne pepper, lime, parmesan.. just to name a few). One thing's for sure- this totally beats the mess of boiling it or heating up the grill and the corn is tender and delicious. Happy easy baking!
