Butter corn on the cob

Buttery deliciousness. I choose Corn for my day 2 – Vegetables  in the July 4th recipe series.



I love love love CORN and this is the easiest and tastiest way to make corn on the cob on the grill or in the oven. Easy clean up and only 3 ingredients. I am tired and of course lazy so you know I like to simple it up and here you have it .. no clean up and no mess .. wow .. I am the best.. yes I know it .. keep telling me tho .. I like it !!!

All you need. You can use unsalted or salted butter (I prefer the salted for this recipe).

Sheets of foil, make sure its big enough to go all the way around your corn cob.

Slice your butter . They don’t have to be perfect slices, be imperfect like me ;) its the best way.

Lay corn in the middle and surround with about 3 slices of butter.

Sprinkle on salt. You can add a little pepper if you prefer.


Bake or grill. I did these in the oven this time but they are great on the grill.

Done.. dig in!!

Corn is my absolute favorite and making the cob this way is easiest and most delicious in my opinion. You can spice it up and add a little paprika or fresh black pepper. I love it just this way, salt and butter only, simple and tasty. Enjoy!!! See more links from the series below. Thank you!

    I’ve never baked corn either, good to know another way to make it, this would be great for camping too!

    I LOVE this idea! Sounds so simple and delicious, and virtually mess-free! Perfect for busy Moms! This would be much easier than trying to butter and salt all the little ones’ corn-on-the-cob at the table when you just want to eat your own corn!!! :)

    Thanks for sharing! I will definitely give this a try!
