4 people



  • 4 ears of fresh corn, husked and silk removed
  • 1/4 cup Basil Olive Oil
  • 8 large fresh basil leaves
  • 2 teaspoons salt


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Prepare 4 squares of foil big enough to wrap around an ear of corn. Place each ear on a piece of foil and drizzle with some olive oil.
  • Sprinkle the corn with salt and roll the ear of corn around so it is covered on all sides with the oil and salt.
  • Layer each ear of corn with 2 large basil leaves, mostly covering the length of the corn. Drizzle more olive oil and wrap corn up in foil.
  • Place all the foil-wrapped ears of corn on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes.
  • Variation: Saute a clove of garlic, chopped, in some olive oil and add on top of the basil, before wrapping in foil.
