Grilled corn on the cob can be a tasty addition to a meal. If you don’t have a grill or weather prevents you from grilling corn outside, you can grill it inside using a conventional oven. This method is often referred to as oven roasting, but the result will taste very similar to grilled corn.

Things You'll Need

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Prepare the corn by removing the outer layers of husk, leaving at least one layer of husk on the corn. Remove the stem portion of the ear.

Tear squares of aluminum foil large enough to fit around the corn and leave 2 to 4 inches of foil over the ends.

Wrap each piece of corn with a piece of aluminum foil.

Place the corn on the bottom rack of the oven.

Cook for 15 minutes, turn the corn and cook for an additional 15 minutes.

Remove the corn from the oven carefully, as it will be extremely hot. Keep the ears covered with foil until ready to serve.


  • For more tender corn, place the wrapped ears in water for up to an hour before grilling.
