Garlic Corn on the Cob
Delicious and fresh summer treat. A favorite for everyone.
Delicious and fresh summer treat. A favorite for everyone.
I've been making this for years (not from this recipe) and I must say, it's a must have for my family! A few suggestions, garlic powder does not do it justice! I use the sweet corn and shuck it, then I put it on the foil (individually) and spray it down really well with spray butter (that way it is evenly distributed.) Then I take roasted minced garlic and spread it out all over the corn (not too much, about a 1/2 tsp or so, I guess) and then I add some salt and pepper, wrap it up tight and grill it. It's AWESOME! Everyone loves it!Read More
Not my favorite. I guess I'm pretty plain when it comes to corn on the cob. Good corn on the cob should only need a little butter and nothing else. If you want corn on the cob but live somewhere where it's hard to get good ears, this may help make up for bland corn.Read More

My family and friends can't get enough of this great stuff! The one thing you should change to make it better is minced garlic instead of the powder. I actually do salt & pepper to taste along with the garlic and butter. Sometimes to save on calories I even use the spray butter. It's absolutely delicious!
I took one stick of butter (at room temperature) and added some minced garlic to it. Then spooned a heaping tablespoon of butter on each piece of corn, smearing it so it covers the ear of corn completely. Wrapped each piece of corn in foil, and placed on the grill for approximately 30-40 minutes. (carcoal grill). No need for additional butter was needed. Delicious.
I THOUGHT THIS WAS GOOD BUT I CHANGED IT A BIT..I DID THE CORN IN THE MICROWAVE(WRAP IN A DAMP PAPER TOWEL AND MICRO 3 TO 4 MINUTES) AND TO SAVE CALORIES AND FAT I USED BUTTER BUDS INSTEAD OF REAL BUTTER...I MIXED THE BUTTER BUDS AND GARLIC POWDER IN A BOWL AND ROLLED THE CORN IN IT...QUICK AND EASY..YOU HAVE TO LOVE THAT.
I'm only giving this 4 stars because I think it tastes SO much better by using fresh garlic than the powder. For 12 ears of corn I used about 4 garlic cloves. Delicous! Last night I tried it the way the recipe calls for garlic powder and it was definitely not as good. I also found that the garlic powder seemed to "dry out" the corn much faster.
Nothing signals the start of summer like grilled corn on the cob at a BBQ! I did mine a little differently though - I left the corn in the husks vs. using foil. I peeled the husks back a bit to remove a little of the silk, put it back then left them soak in cold water for 30 minutes. I put the corn in husks on the grill for 30 minutes rotating it around the coals. The corn cooks by steaming inside the husks. I made my own garlic butter for these and all that was left to do was sprinkle with a bit of salt.
I put the corn right on the grill for the grill marks and a little caramelizing... gotta embrace the sugar in the corn!! (I parboiled the corn the day before - helped with timing it up with the meat!)
I par-boiled my corn in sugar water and then grilled it. I too used fresh garlic and then made a garlic butter sauce for brushing after they were off the heat. Very good and thanks Christine!
GREAT! Like others, I only give this recipe 4 stars because it truly is better with fresh garlic. The garlic taste might seem odd at first coupled with corn but I promise that by your first ear, you'll be craving more! Love that the author included oven instructions!
Very good. It was enjoyed by all. THX
Very good. I didn't measure the garlic powder and added some parmesan cheese to a couple of cobs. The only thing I'll do different next time is let them go longer in the oven (45-60) minutes.
We just came into the heart of our corn season, so I thought i'd give this a try. After reading the (most helpful) part of the reviews, I decided to follow Jillians advice which produced the most delicious sweetcorn imaginable. Thank you Jillian. Nothing beats fresh picked sweet corn, properly soaked in water, and then roasted on the grill in it's own husk. If it's soaked long enough, the inside kernels of corn get steamed not burned. I also love the fact that you can use the (pulled back) husk as a handle, for eating.
This turned out very well. I liked the way that this turned out. I didn't absolutely wow me, but it was good enough to use again. You will probably have to use salt after the cooking process. Thank you for the post.
Delicious. That is all I can say. I found it great with garlic powder, and also delicious with fresh garlic. I ended up wrapping mine in foil and then baking it in the oven at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes, but it came out so delicious, that I will be making it that way over and over again!
My DS liked corn on better this way than just boiling it, however, my DD likes it better boiled. I liked for something different since I had the grill on anyways. Next time I'll add a bit more butter, salt, and garlic.
The garlic didn't really do it for us. But the technique was great!
Not my favorite. I guess I'm pretty plain when it comes to corn on the cob. Good corn on the cob should only need a little butter and nothing else. If you want corn on the cob but live somewhere where it's hard to get good ears, this may help make up for bland corn.
Very good - however, I did a bit of a variation. Instead of garlic powder which has a lot of sodium, I used crushed garlic. I also love a kick to my corn so I added some chili powder sprinkled over. I think a spray butter would also work but I love real butter myself.
We've made a variation of this recipe by added parsley and Italian seasoning to the garlic powder. Yum
This is a great way to cook corn on the cob. I placed a shishkabob skewer in the end of each ear, makes it easy to turn and a great way to hold it while eating. Everyone thought this was fantastic at my 4th of July party.
Delish... However I used olive oil instead of butter and cook it about 20 min if you like your corn on the firmer side.
This was really delicious! I, too, used fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. And I baked the corn in the oven while making a pork tenderloin. It came out perfect!!! I'll never make corn on the cob any other way again. Thanks sooo much for the recipe!
I've used this recipe before but instead of plain butter, I use krauterbutter with a little salt and pepper. Krauterbutter is German and easy to make - add finely chopped chives, dill, parsely, garlic and a few drops of lemon juice to softened butter, then refrigerate until it hardens again. The herbs add a great taste to the butter and corn.
As with other readers, I've made my corn this way for years However I use garlic salt rather than powder. This adds a lot more flavor and doesn't have the strange texture or aftertaste (note: I buy the garlic salt that has parsley in it). I prefer to grill my corn straight on the grill. I melt my butter, mix in the garlic salt, then spread on the corn while it is on the grill. The corn takes 20-30 minutes to cook.
Delicious! Even as I was taking the first bite, I was still very unsure about garlic on corn, but it was good. I've made it a few times, a couple times with garlic powder, and a couple times with actual garlic. It's definitely better with fresh garlic. I bake them instead of grilling them and still good.
With this recipe all I changed was using Honey butter spread, and the garlic with lemon pepper seasoning. on the grill wrapped in foil for about 25-30 min
Could barely taste the garlic. Just OK for me.
Only 4 stars because fresh garlic was SO MUCH BETTER! I'd say don't even bother with the powdered stuff. Also, my corn needed a bit more time in the oven (almost the full amount), though I was only making 5 ears. No matter, it was fantastic and simple! Yum yum, thanks! *-V.
Family loves it! Cuts out the mess of having to butter and season when hot and the butter cooks down into the corn. I will be cooking it like this from now on.
An easy side dish but I don't think garlic powder is the way to go. I'll use fresh next time.
Pretty good, but my 3 year old (who loves cotc) wouldn't eat it. So, I probably won't be making it again.
This was delicious! I used the garlic powder, but only sprinkled a small amount on each cob. Will definitely try again and use fresh.
This is a great way to grill corn on the cob. I was very impressed.
Awesome basic recipe for the oven...I added salt, pepper, garlie powder, butter, and couldn't say no to just one!
not spectacular - I don't think I will bother with all the foil wrapping etc. next time - if you are lucky enough to have good corn, it is most delicious just quickly boiled and everyone can butter their own. This was Just not our thing, I guess.
So easy, so good. We grilled this, and it was delicious.
Tried this and it was great! Love grilled corn!!!
Already been making it this way forever! SO GOOD! I prefer to use fresh chopped garlic and add black pepper, though.
This is a great, basic recipe. Have done many different variations of this by varying the spices. One of our favorite additions to bbq!
I was really looking forward to this side dish for dinner, but was underwhelmed. It tasted like corn on the cob with a hint of garlic-essence. By roasting the corn on the grill it also ruined some of the juiciness I love. Not a great enough recipe to be saved, tried again, or even thought about.
Excellent recipe! Substituted the garlic powder for fresh minced garlic and it turned out great!
This was great. I did add some freshly ground black pepper to the recipe. Thanks for the great recipe!
it was ok but i just really wasn't into the garlic on the corn. I tried both regular garlic and garlic powder. I liked that I could use it in the oven and it cooked perfectly. Just the right amount of crunch but next time ill probably just use regular salt and butter instead of the garlic.
I also have been doing this for years but have added salt & pepper with fresh garlic. You can add garlic powder if you are in a hurry but, you will taste the difference. To really wow your guests with this,add one or two leaves of Thyme before wrapping the corn. Wow!
easy and delishious! makes great leftovers too :)
Awesome. My 5 year old loves this. The only bad thing is, that it is hard to find corn on the cob in the winter.
Super good & easy. Next time I'll try with fresh minced garlic.
I just got back from the store with more ears of corn so I could make this again! I love this! I do agree that the addition of salt or seasoning salt is needed. Otherwise I love this recipe! Thanks.
The (fresh) garlic smelled AMAZING coming off the grill but we couldn't really taste it. Either way I would make this again.
Great recipe for quick corn on the cob.
Delicious! We loved this on the grill, it was very good, very easy to put together too :)
The best way to do corn for sure! I've made it twice now and it's great using garlic powder or freshly minced garlic.
We ended up adding some salt at the table, so next time I may use garlic salt or garlic powder plus seasoned salt, etc. I was pleased that this recipe does give you a great basic, no-fail way to grill corn.
This was a definite twist on corn on the cob! My family loved it and fought over the leftovers the next night. What a great way to hold the flavor in, the kids thought it was awesome they didn't have to butter the corn. :)
yum yum yum. Simple and delicious!
This was very good! The first time I've ever gotten corn on the cob to cook properly on the grill. I will be making this again. Thanks!
I dissolved the garlic powder in melted butter and added a little onion powder...pour over corn and roast. as one other post suggested parboil corn first to save some time...this is delicious.
OMG...made this with softened butter and fresh minced garlic. Just slathered some on each ear, wrapped tightly in the foil, and grilled for about 40 min. It was amazing! Soooooooo good! A keeper for sure.
This recipe was so easy to follow. It cooks the corn just perfect. I will cook again!
Really good corn! Followed the "recipe" except I used spread fresh minced garlic around the corn instead of the powder. Tasted like candy!
Great and easy recipe...I used 1.5 tbs of butter per ear and real crushed garlic instead of powder
I love corn on the cobb grilled.
Perfect and easy!
I'm not a fan of eating corn but made these for a family get together & it was a hit!! I used small frozen corn on the cob, followed directions as stated & it still came out good!! Thanks for a simple & tasteful way to eat corn on the cob.
This was very good. I used garlic salt and added some garlic pepper, when done, I removed them from the foil and rolled around on the grill for about a minute to get that 'grilled' look. Thanks for posting!
Easy recipe! I added more salt and garlic to ours. Make sure you seal tight or you will have a mess. Pretty good recipe. Will make again
Very very good! Super easy and requires little cleanup! I used garlic salt instead of garlic powder and it turned out very good! Will definitely make again!
This is a good way to cook corn on the BBQ. I recommend double wrapping the corn in foil so it doesnt burn though.
I love corn on Cob Even in microwave and yummy in tummy
Amazing with minced garlic instead of powdered!
This was pretty good. I followed the recipe exactly and have to agree with others, the garlic powder doesn't do it justice. If made with fresh garlic, I think this could easily be bumped up to 5 stars.
Really tasty and very simple. Even with our gas grill on low, it didn't take half an hour, so make sure you watch it.
delicious..I added a bit of cayenne pepper to the butter and garlic....gave it a little kick....I use this same method for frozen corn on the cob as well....once the corn is done boiling, drain, and roll in melted butter mixture once or twice....yummm...
I don't have a grill so I cooked this in the oven with a little fresh garlic and some garlic powder (didn't have enough fresh), salt, and pepper. Very tasty but I needed to cook the corn a littl longer, maybe because the corn was frozen first. Of course clean up is a breeze.
We enjoyed this. I sprayed with Pam butter spray, used garlic powder and a little minced garlic and covered in salt and pepper. I also chose the baking method. Very tender and a great flavor! ~UPDATE~ I used Pam butter spray again but this time just used garlic powder and seasoning salt. Wrapped in foil and grilled on the barbie - super!
Wonderful and super easy. I added fresh pepper to the garlic and salt to pep it up a bit. Very tasty!
The flavor was really good, and it was easy to make. I baked it in the oven for 25 minutes, but it wasn't quite done. I think next time I'll try 35-40 minutes instead.
The method is great, but doesn't have to be garlic. Try sweet smoked paprika, or thyme, or other things as well. Also, more than 20 minutes for good corn is too much.
This recipe was good, but I don't see how the garlic powder makes a difference - I couldn't taste it (although I did not follow the measurements, I did sprinkle alot of garlic powder). Will try with real garlic next time... it did turn out delicious nevertheless.
The best corn I ever had...my family loved it too!
it was good, but still prefer my corn steamed
Yummy! I took the advice of some of the other reviews I have read, and used about 5 cloves of fresh minced garlic mixed with the softened butter instead of garlic powder.
These were definitely good, but I think fresh garlic and more seasonings would make them better. We cooked ours for 45 minutes, turning once, and they were perfect. Much better than boiling... will make again, but adding to the recipe. Thanks!
I use this oven method of making corn on the cob every time I make it! I do change up the seasonings a little, I use salt, a little sprinkle of black pepper, and sometimes garlic or onion powder. When putting on the butter, I don't measure how much I'm using, but I use the spoon to spread it from end to end. This corn comes out a little firm, so I'll sometimes leave it 5 minutes more to get the kernels softer. (This may be related to my oven's temperature being off.) I also turn the corn every 10 minutes.
It was good. I didn't precook the corn, just put in the oven for 30 minutes. Because of a busy schedule I ended up dressing the corn a day in advance, wrapping it in foil and letting it sit in the fridge overnight and in my car for a few hours. Lacking a point of comparison, I'm not SURE, but I think the corn got nicely infused with garlic overnight.
I will never boil corn ever again!!! :) AWESOME!
Pretty good, although corn is great by itself. On a separate note, not related to my rating, I burned these pretty bad on the grill!
very easy and simple to make. I only made mine with butter. Perfect!
YUM- LOVE THIS, BUT I LIKE USING GARLIC SALT INSTEAD- SOMETIMES I ADD PEPPER...
Why don't you people make your own recipe instead of butchering this one...
Very good! I also used minced garlic instead of garlic powder and added 1 tsp of parsley flakes to the melted butter/garlic mixture. My recipe made 6 mini-ears.
Its an easy to way to cook corn on the cob on the grill, but not 5 star worthy.
My favorite way to eat corn. I used fresh minced garlic and either bake or grill the ears of corn. It's perfect for a corn-only dinner or as a side with meat. I love the fact that you can prepare just the number of ears of corn that you would like. Easy and delicious.
Wow!!! Greatest corn recipe ever. I will never buy frozen again. I actually added a few pieces of minced garlic instead of the powder and had to cook a little bit longer and they came out absolutly perfect, and were a huge party hit! Thanks for this amazing recipe!
I love this recipe. I now find myself only making corn on the cob this way. I add a couple extra cloves of garlic and try to limit the butter but it is great! Thank you.
This recipe is very easy and very good. I made it for my son's 4th grade class and the parents and kids just loved it. We have made it part of our regular menu. Thanks.
What a great, simple way to make corn on the cob! I loved not having to add butter before eating and the garlic gave it a little extra flavor. Will make again!
I thought this was fine, but I think I prefer grilling the corn directly on the grate rather than wrapping in foil. I found that a lot of the butter and garlic flavor was left behind in the foil wrapper. I think I could have achieved better results by grilling the cobs plain, and then just using a garlic butter after cooking.
