Corn…Ribs?

Yep! You heard right. This trend became super popular on Tik Tok, and now I absolutely love making corn this way. I don’t know about you, but eating corn on the cob always seemed to get more stuck in my teeth than in my belly. However, cutting it down into “ribs” makes it taste like it’s on the cob, but without half of it left in your teeth! You can pretty much season it with any kind of seasoning and it will still turn out delicious and tender and ready to get in your belly.

How to make Roasted Corn Ribs

Preheat oven to 400°F. Next, you need to prep the corn. I have found that cutting all the way through a corn cob is super difficult and a little dangerous, so I snap them in half first! It’s really easy to just bend and snap a corn cob in half. Then you can go ahead and slice through those lengthwise. I like them a little thinner so I normally slice them down into fourths. To do that, lay it flat on your cutting board and slice through the corn. Don’t try and do this with it standing upright.

After your corn is ready, simply toss everything into a ziplock bag and shake it up. This is the easiest way to get them coated, in my opinion. You can also just use a large bowl. Once the corn is evenly coated with the spices, lay them in an even layer on your baking sheet. Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until as browned as you like. If you want the ribs to curl more, you will need to leave them in longer. Just keep an eye on them!

Tips for making Roasted Corn Ribs

Snapping the corn cobs in half before you slice them makes it so much easier and way less dangerous!

When slicing down the cob, make sure you have a flat side that is sturdy. If the cob is all wiggly it could potentially slip out from under your knife.

For a completely mess free experience, use a ziplock bag to shake up your corn and seasonings. Then make sure and put down some parchment paper for your corn!

You can use pretty much any combo of seasonings you’d like and it will turn out delicious. As long as the seasoning blend tastes good, you’re good! Try using ranch or Mexican seasoning.
