The Best Ever Oven Roasted Corn

SERVES 8  |  ACTIVE TIME 10 Min  |  TOTAL TIME 55 Minutes

8 ears corn, cleaned
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature
kosher salt, to taste
fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Place corn on baking sheet.  Reserve about 1/2 of the butter.  Spread remaining butter on the whole ear of corn.  Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper (I use about 1 teaspoon of each).

Bake for 30-45 minutes, until starting to brown.  Turn corn occasionally. Remove from oven and spread remaining butter over the top of the corn.  Sprinkle with more pepper as desired.

Serve and enjoy!

COOK'S NOTE:  We also love to add a dash of cayenne pepper.  The best way to do that is to place 4 tablespoons butter in a small dish.  Add desired amount of cayenne pepper and mix together. Smear butter on corn and then continue with recipe.
