I love corn. Especially fresh corn on the cob. It just screams summer!!
Normally we grill it…because boiling it just doesn’t do it justice.
But now our grill is torn up.
So, I have learned the next best thing to grilled corn is baked corn.
It’s so easy…and makes your house smell like grilled corn.
All you have to do is grab a few ears of fresh corn.
Lay them directly on your oven rack.
Seriously. You don’t shuck them or anything.
Hey now! Don’t look at my dirty oven! We are talking corn here.
And don’t go gettin any ideas about sharing how dirty my oven is like you would the results of paternity tests, or some good gossip. It can’t help it…it is always in use. It even groans at times it is so over-worked. But I love my oven anyway, even if it just can’t seem to keep itself clean and presentable.
Bake on 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
I simply peel back the husks and the silk will fall right off. I then use the folded back husk as a handle.
Butter, Salt and Pepper
3 ears fresh corn
Salt and Pepper
Place ears of corn on oven rack. Bake on 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Add butter, salt and pepper to taste. If you want to kick it up a notch…sprinkle with some cajun seasoning. Or some Parmesan cheese. Or seasoning salt. All of these will give you a variation and the options become limitless in the different spices you could use!
