Oven Roasted Corn on the Cob




I hate fireworks. I have never have liked them and I don't understand the fascination. Part of the reason goes back to when I was little and my mother's family thought that buying m-80's and setting them off would be fun. It wasn't and it pretty much cemented my hate of loud noises. In college I tried going to one of the huge fireworks displays at night and people were paying more attention to each other than the fireworks (if you get my drift, there more clothes on the ground than on the people). Thankfully my kids and husband aren't big fans of fireworks either so it has been almost 9 years since I have seen fireworks on the 4th. I do like sparklers, but with only males in my family they have no appeal to anyone in my house except me. So my family will be celebrating the 4th without fireworks, which is just fine in my book.

The 4th of July always makes me think of cookouts, and cookouts make me think of corn on the cob. While I would love to fire up the grill everyday, sometimes the charcoal grill is just too much effort (and my husband will not allow a gas grill anyone near our house). It's during these times that I grill my corn in the oven. It's easy and literally only takes 30 minutes. The recipe is as follows.

Oven Roasted Corn on the Cob

Ingredients
  • 4 Ears of Corn
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Keeping husks on corn place directly on the middle oven rack.
  3. Roast corn for 30 minutes.
  4. Pull out and season with salt and butter.
  5. Alternatively you may also rub the ears of corn with butter and pull the husks back up before placing them in the oven.
That's it. They turn out great roasted in the oven without the soggy taste that often happens when corn on the cob is boiled. I have a huge corn on the cob obsession and when it gets cheap in the middle of the summer we eat corn almost everyday. 

Have a happy 4th of July tomorrow everyone!

  1. I don't mind fireworks. Like you, I don't like the noise, but I like looking at them, so we usually sit in the furthest spot possible :)

    1. We can see the big display in our city from our front living room. My kids got bored about two minutes in and went back to watching tv :)

  4. I didn't know you could roast corn in the oven, but it does make perfectly good sense.

    We like the fireworks, but yesterday on a whim we took kind of a long drive to a neighboring city that was letting them off (our town did them on the 3rd). We sat in the gated area with hundreds of other people and were loving it, but I remember thinking right at the beginning, 'wow these are pretty close, if one malfunctioned we'd be toast.' Then my son started to cry (he doesn't cry often) and he had ash in his eye (I know because our blanket was covered w/it, but I didn't notice until just then). I took him to the nearest open place and flushed his eye. At home I looked it up and it's pretty common. Who knew? Usually we don't sit close to get a good view, and we won't be doing it again either. Thankfully all's well today w/the eye. :)

    1. Ouch! I hope that your son is feeling better. I wouldn't want to go back either after that experience. I hope today was less eventful for you :)
