Oven Roasted Ranch Style Corn on the Cob. Add a little flavor to your vegetables. Goes great with grilled foods and BBQs.
Can corn on the cob be cooked in the oven?
You can boil it, grill it and bake/roast it in the oven. All three ways work. If you boil it, you can add the spices after it’s done. If you bake/roast or grill them, you can season it while it’s cooking. Then, those flavors just permeate the corn.
Even though this takes a while to cook, but that’s to be expected with corn on the cob. It only takes 5 minutes to prep. This Ranch Style Corn on the Cob would be a perfect side dish to any meal that may take you awhile to make. While you’re cooking your main dish, this could be going in the oven.
How do you know when corn on the cob is cooked?
You can look for a couple of things. First, when the yellow is more intense that when it was frozen or fresh. Secondly, the kernels are plumper and more tender.
What to add to corn to make it taste better?
Typically, it only requires butter, salt and pepper to taste good. If you feel like changing it up, add something like I did. Or, you could add some of your favorite spices like garlic, cayenne pepper, onion powder or salt, or even Parmesan cheese would be great.
How do you prepare corn on the cob?
Unless your corn on the cob has a husk, there is nothing to do but start cooking it. If you are boiling it, just drop it in the water. If you are cooking it in the oven or on a grill, add your butter and/or spices before cooking.
