Easy Air Fryer Side Dish

  • Count on the air fryer to deliver restaurant-quality results with minimal prep and cleanup! Fresh or frozen, corn on the cob comes out perfect every time.
  • Frozen ears of corn are usually cut in half which makes them easier to fit in an air fryer basket.
  • It’s possible to air fry corn on the cob in its husk. This works best if the husk can be wrapped around the entire ear so it cooks evenly. Pull the husk back, remove the ‘silk’, season, and cook as directed in the recipe below.
  • Serve these ears of corn with some Air Fryer Frozen Turkey Burgers, or flavorful Air Fryer Southwest Chicken.

Ingredients & Variations

CORN Fresh or frozen, choose ears that are fresh, firm, and don’t have any bruises or missing kernels.

SEASONINGS Air fryer corn on the cob tastes best when it’s mildly seasoned to get the sweet flavor of the corn. When available, melted leftover bacon grease is a tasty substitute for the oil too.

PRO TIP Sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on the corn before cooking it as it will melt into the kernels and up-level the flavor. Any combination of seasonings goes great on air fryer corn; taco or ranch seasonings are fun to try.
