Oven Roasted Corn & Garlic Infused Butter

Oven Roasted Corn
Oven Roasted Corn

I have been given this recipe a few times, but I was skeptical. I finally relented and gave  it a try and oh my, have I missed out on a great thing for far too long! 

The corn comes out delicious, moist and bursting with roasted flavor.

The garlic infused butter is just down-right delicious.  It has the most mellow, rich flavor that is not strong but compliments the corn perfectly. And be sure to sure to get to the bottom of the bowl for the wonderful bits of garlic.

Oven Roasted Corn on the Cob


6 fresh corn ears IN the husk    

1/4 cup real butter  

1/2 tsp. fresh garlic, minced  salt to taste  


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Set corn directly ON the oven rack.Oven Roasted Corn 1

Bake for 25-30 minutes (less if small ears) For a very special treat, while the corn is cooking, melt the butter in the microwave or in a small pan on the stove. Add in the garlic and allow it to sit while corn is cooking, at least 15 minutes. When the corn is done, remove from the oven and carefully peel back the corn husks. Just like magic the corn silk falls away easily.Oven Roasted Corn 2Using a pastry brush, brush the garlic butter on the ears of corn and sprinkle with salt. Serve. *If cooking more than 6 ears, I would recommend moving the middle shelf up 1 and the bottom rack up to the middle to accommodate a dozen or so ears of corn.

  1. Carrie,

    I love this recipe! A lot of people do not know that when you cook corn with the husk still on it comes off so much easier.

    Thanks for sharing,
