When I was a kid I remember what a treat it was to have corn on the cob! My brothers and I would be so excited to see the tiny corn holders out, knowing we would be getting that buttery, deliciousness soon! We didn’t have it very often, and now as an adult I know why! I only enjoyed eating it, I never saw the time it took for my mom or grandma to prep the corn, boil the water, wait for the corn to cook, etc. Who knew it was such a hassle?
When I discovered a quick and easy way to make corn on the cob in the microwave (Yes, really!) I couldn’t wait to share it with you! It could not be any easier and it tastes just as delicious as if you’d spent all that extra time! (Now you can use that extra time to do something fun!)
Quick and Easy Corn on the Cob in the Microwave
All you need for this easy trick? Corn! No boiled water, nothing! Grab your corn, husk and all, and put it directly into the microwave. I added mine right to the turntable.
Cook for four minutes on high. If you’re cooking more than one ear of corn, add on another two minutes per ear. (Times may need to be adjusted per your microwave!)
Using a towel or potholder, remove your corn from the microwave. (It will be hot!) Take a knife and cut off the end of the husk, going up a few rows from the end.
Your corn should slip right out from the husk! Seriously, how easy was that?!
And if you’re looking for a way to make this meal even more easy and delicious? I just found new Land O Lakes® Soft Squeeze™ Spread and it’s so easy to use! It’s made with real butter and it tastes delicious. Growing up, we’d always add a stick of butter to the table for corn on the cob, which meant you couldn’t re-dip your corn (without sharing your germs), and the leftover butter was now corn-flavored!
With the Land O Lakes® Soft Squeeze™ Spread there’s less mess and you can add as much or as little as you’d like!
I found it at my local Walmart right with the butter and buttery spreads:
