An easy way to butter your corn on the cob is to use a slice of buttered bread.

An easier way is to open one stick of butter and use it for just the corn. Put the handles on the ear and turn it on the butter surface. Re-wrap the stick and return to refrigerator to wait for next time.

An easy way to butter corn on the cob, Butter an end piece of bread that many of us throw away anyway. Hold it in one hand and hold corn on the cob in the other hand and roll into the buttered bread. It is such a great way to butter the corn!

Use a brick of butter on a saucer. Slide the cob back and forth as you turn it. (07/21/2006)
What a great idea to use bread! Why didn't I think of that. :o) (07/22/2006)
My mother in law taught me this little trick over 20 years ago. I didn't think this idea was still around, thanks all for the reminder (07/22/2006)
My hubby has been using the old bread trick for years! I still go to the trouble of buttering with a knife but it really isn't that easy or efficient. I think another good idea would be to melt some butter, have in some sort of container and then use a basting brush to brush on the corn. (07/23/2006)
