Oven Roasted Corn on the Cob

cornonthecob-4 Today’s post is pretty simple… with bbq season coming up, we’ll all be wanting lots of corn on the cob. Personally, my favorite way to cook it is to coat it in butter and good chili spices and throw it on the bbq, but a good quick way in the house is to rub it in olive oil, sprinkle some salt and chili powder on it, and bake it. Another good option is to use a lime cilantro butter, with a stick of softened butter mixed with a half of a zested and juiced lime, a quarter cup diced cilantro, a teaspoon of salt and half a teaspoon of cayenne. First remove the husks and silk from the corn.


Give the corn on the cob a good coating of olive oil, then sprinkle on your favorite seasonings. Salt and pepper, a bbq rub, onion and garlic powder, or in this case, a homemade tomato salt with sun dried tomatoes and sea salt. cornonthecob-2

Wrap the ears in foil. You can do them individually or in pairs like we did to save foil.


Bake at 400 °F for 20 minutes or until soft. You’re done!
