Microwave Corn on the Cob

Total Time
2 mins

Simple and quick. Different from the other recipes in that the corn is wrapped in wax paper. Adjustable to any reasonable amount of corn. Would be ideal for someone cooking for one or two. From Kraft Food + Family. The butter is listed as an optional ingredient since you really don't need it, but I enjoy melting a huge blob of it on my corn after it's done :-)

  1. Shuck fresh corn. Wrap each ear in wax paper.
  2. Microwave for 2 minutes per ear of corn. (For 4 ears, 8 minutes.) Remove from microwave, open carefully, and enjoy. I like to top mine with salt and butter, the magazine suggested a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and lime juice.
  3. To keep them warm awhile, leave wrapped and cover with a kitchen towel :-).
