Corn on the cob with just butter, salt, and sugar to make it so tasty. This will go with anything. No herbs to take away the flavor of the corn.

This was super easy great tasting corn-on-the-cob! I also loved it because it freed up my stove for other things. plus the major heat of boiling corn was out of the kitchen. Thanks for posting! :D! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag.
