Sprinkle a little powdered ranch on them along with the butter before wrapping them up for a tasty surprise! :)

Much better than water-logged cobs boiled in water. Do remember to place a baking sheet underneath to catch any butter that may seep through the foil. Thanks for sharing a great technique! :)

Originally rated on 4/5/09 - This recipe made it into my book#266453. I may never boil corn on the cob again. This is a great technique. I loved that the butter was able to melt on the cob inside the foil. No mess! The corn stayed nice and crisp (I was afraid it wouldn't) and flavorful. I did 2 ears of corn for 20 minutes and salted them after unwrapping. Just fabulous, pure and simple! Note: use a cookie sheet to catch butter IF any butter should happen to escape the aluminum foil. ~Made for Spring PAC~

I'd recommend keeping them in the oven for at least 35-40 minutes. Open the foil wrap after 20 mins so they catch a little "tan") I buttered them in olive oil and garlic salt. Worked out GREAT. Will not waste bottled water to boil corn ever again.

It was a simple quick recipe that was delicious! I used extra virgin olive oil, garlic powder, & Italian dressing...with sea salt and cracked pepper. Yummy!

After the butter, I added garlic powder to some of the ears and curry powder to others. They all tuned out great! Yum!!!

It was delicious, I'd never cooked corn on the cob before but I really love ordering it in restaurants so I was missing out! Thanks for this! It was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be and from the other reviews it sounds like I needn't try any other method.
