Picture of oven roasted corn on the cob

No soaking, boiling, husking... just 35 minutes in the oven and you have perfect corn on the cob! The corn steams in its own husk, leaving your stove top available for other dishes and eliminating any need to clean additional pans!

I've been doing it this way for a few years and it comes out great every single time.

Step 1: What you'll need:

Picture of What you'll need:
  • fresh corn with the husk intact
  • an oven set to 350 F
I've done up to eight ears of corn with no problems... but for larger amounts you may need to cook them a little longer.

If you take the extra step to remove the silk first, you can also coat the corn in some butter (or margarine) and add a little bit of seasoning....

This is basically how I cook it on the grill. I start the corn a few minutes before the rest of the food and they all come off the grill together.

Great idea !!

Nice job. Although I always pull back the husks and take the silk off and then pull the husks back down......I don't like burning my fingers trying to take the silks off when I am starving and my mouth is ready to bite down..... lol.

Haha, understandable. :)

I haven't had too much of an issue with the silks when cooking this way... all the steaming seems to make them much easier to get off!
I meant to tell you a while back that I have tried this and it does work and guess what? It works in the microwave as well. I LOVE IT. The silks are not a bit of trouble.

Yayayayay! Good to know about the microwave too. I might try that if I get super lazy. :)
