Deviled Corn (Easy Microwave Fix)

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by twissis

This is recipe #2 from *Microwave Cooking* by Lorna Rhodes & I cannot wait to try this great idea for corn-on-the-cob. It could hardly be easier to fix & this is 1 of those recipes that bridges the generation gap to become a favorite for adults & kids. I may even try adding some garlic to the mix. Yum!

Top Review by Charlotte J

I had 4 small ears so made half of this recipe. Even with that, it makes a lot of butter mixture. So for the record, 3 ounces of butter is equal to 6 tablespoons. I wrapped my corn in plastic wrap and microwaved them for 6 minutes. You could not taste that much of the butter on them. So I added extra butter mixture just before I ate mine. You could really taste the sweet flavor from the ketchup. I'm not use to a sweet taste to my corn unless it is creamed style. Made for *Recipe Swap No19 August 2008* game, from the Aussie Forum
