Whether it’s a backyard BBQ or Sunday dinner, roasting corn in the oven is ideal for making large batches at one time and there’s no need to boil a large pot of water.

  • Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Oven Roasted Corn: Corn with husks and silk removed, butter, garlic salt, black pepper, onion power and chopped fresh Italian parsley.
  • Kitchen gadgets you’ll need: A large rimmed sheet pan or jelly roll pan, measuring spoons, a small bowl to mix the butter and seasonings, a pastry brush preferably a silicone brush to slather the butter onto the corn.
  • Heavy duty foil allows for easy clean-up after roasting the corn. Should you choose to roast it directly on the pan spray it liberally with cooking spray.
  • You can use light butter or full fat butter for this recipe.
  • You may opt to sprinkle the tops of the corn with grated Parmesan cheese for a twist.
  • I recommend removing the corn from the cob for storing leftovers. You can use simply reheat it and serve it as a side dish, or use it as a topping for tacos, salads and more. You can also use it as an ingredient in casseroles or any recipe that calls for whole kernel corn.

  1. I am waiting for all the best local sweet corn – can’t wait to try your method, have pinned it for safe keeping! Thank you so much for sharing my sweet corn relish recipe, too!

  2. I heard that if you slather butter and the spices on a piece of bread then wrap the cob with bread in hand it’s easy to get all the corn covered.

    1. If you want to spice this up go for it! You can sprinkle it with grated Parmesan cheese, add chili or Cajun spices and more, the sky is truly the limit. Spice is purely subjective and this version will please the larger majority of people in my opinion.
