Brown Sugar Butter Roasted Corn on the Cob

Brown Sugar Butter Roasted Corn on the Cob


4 servings


  • 4 pieces corn on the cob, shucked
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


Place each corn on a 12x18-inch piece of aluminum foil on a parchment-lined sheet pan or plate, if grilling.

Preheat oven to 450°F, if oven roasting. Heat grill to medium-high, if grilling.

Brush each piece of corn with 1 tablespoon melted butter

In a small bowl, blend sugar with seasonings. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the mixture over each piece of corn.

Loosely enclose corn in a foil “pouch’. Roast or grill 20 minutes.

Carefully open foil pouches and roast “open”, if desired, up to 5 minutes to caramelize corn.

Serve immediately, with syrup in the foil poured over the top.
