A Recipe for the Fourth: Corn on the Cob

To me, nothing says fourth of July like good ‘ol corn on the cob… I would assume that I’m not the only one who feels this way considering when I went to the grocery store to pick some up, they were out of it!  Can you believe that? I couldn’t either. Anyways, I then jotted over to Whole Foods and there, they were selling packaged corn for way too much money (my husband likes to call Whole Foods “Whole Wallet” for obvious reasons) and surprisingly, they were also selling 3 individual ears of corns for $1 – duh, no-brainer… that’s what I was getting.
Some people like to add oil and paprika to their cobs, some people like to eat it plain, but from what I’ve been told, the way I make it is the best.  Do you want to know my secret ingredient?  Fine, I’ll tell you because I like you: it’s zero calorie butter spray! Specifically, the kind by “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter”… it’s mmm mmmm good.  Now that it’s been established that butter spray is my secret ingredient, I will also tell you that I add garlic powder to the corn and bake them in the oven.  Of course you can grill them, but for me, baking works perfectly.  Let me tell you, this is the most flavorful, delicious corn on the cob that you’ll ever taste in your life!  It’s like a sweet, buttery and garlic-y explosion in your mouth. You can thank me later!

  • Corn on the cob (you can decide how many you want to prepare)
  • Butter Spray
  • Garlic Powder

Directions: (feel free to refer to pictures above)

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  1. Shuck your ears of corn, removing the husks completely.
  2. Put each individual corn on the cob on top of it’s own square sheet of tin foil.
  3. Spray the spray butter directly onto each cob – cover it completely.
  4. Sprinkle your garlic powder directly onto each buttered cob – cover it completely.
  5. Wrap up your cobs in their tin foil.
  6. Put in the oven for 30 minutes – flipping once half-way through!
Trust me, you will be impressed, your company will be impressed, nobody will ever know that you used spray butter and you’ll never make corn on the cob any other way again!


And for those of you who are still unsure of what to make for your 4th parties later in the day, what are waiting for?? Take a look at all the awesome red, white and blue Pinterest ideas that I’ve already gathered for you! 

With that, have a fun, safe and firework-filled

Independence Day celebration!
