Crock Pot Creamed Corn:

Sweet Corn is a favorite side dish around here. Creamed corn is always a huge hit and my family gobbles it up. It is just so creamy and tastes amazing.

I recently started making it in the crock pot and everyone really enjoyed it. It was not hard at all and I think you will be pleased how effortless this side dish is.

Plus, it tastes better than what you buy in the store. It is richer and just really amazing. It is a must try! This classic side dish is slow cooked in a rich and creamy sauce and they perfect for your holiday dinner table.

What is Creamed Corn?

Creamed corn is corn kernels that are mixed with a cream cheese sauce. There are different ways that you can make creamed corn, but I like that this recipe is easy to make with simple ingredients.

Creamed Corn can be on the sweeter side, but this recipes combines the ingredients so that it is the right amount of sweetness and creaminess.

Why make Creamed Corn in the Slow Cooker?

You can still make creamed corn on the stove top, but we like to make it in the slow cooker. We all know that I try to make food that is as easy as possible, and making this recipe in the crock pot is no different.

Cooking this cream style corn in the crock pot allows for it to simmer longer and soak up all of that buttery goodness.

Probably my favorite reason to cook in the slow cooker as I can keep it on warm and leave it in the crock pot if I am serving it for a holiday dinner. This is probably the easiest slow cooker recipe that you will ever make.

Is Cream Style Corn the same as creamed corn?

You might hear this type of corn called cream style corn or creamed corn. They are both the same things. Sometimes the difference in name can be regional or just what you grew up calling it. Either way, it is the same thing.

I know when I think of creamed corn, I think of the canned version. This slow cooker homemade version is so much better. This side dish is a must at all the holiday events that my family goes to.

  • Next, cut the butter and cream cheese into thin slices. Put this on top of everything else in the crock pot.
  • Finally, cover and cook on high for 2 to 3 hours. Cooking time will vary. You want the butter and cheese melted. I will open the lid once and stir everything together to prevent a crust forming.
  • The last step is to uncover and the stir everything together. You want to make sure that you are stirring thoroughly. At first it might look at little but keep stirring as the ingredients completely combine.
  • I like to taste the creamed corn before serving. This way I can add in additional salt and pepper if needed.
  • It is also good to let your corn rest for a few minutes before serving. Then once you are ready to serve, give it a good stir to make sure everything is fully melted and combined. If it seems to think, you can also add in a little milk to get the consistency that you are wanting.
  • Now you are ready to serve. You can either place in a serving dish or leave in the slow cooker on warm if you are doing buffet style for your guest.

Yum! Enjoy.

Tips:

  • We made this recipe is a 4 quart crock pot. However this can easily be made in a 6 quart crock pot too.
  • You can substitute fresh corn for canned corn. Often in the summer when corn on the cob is on sale, we use that and just take the corn off the cob to use.
  • Frozen corn- You can also substitute a bag of frozen corn if you prefer to use that.
  • This recipe easily doubles. It is a great dish for a potluck or holiday.
  • Garnish with green onions if you want to add a pop of color.
  • We also like to have some diced bacon on the side.
  • It is best to use regular cream cheese and not reduced fat cream cheese.
  • Want to make it a little more decadent, add in some heavy cream. You can replace the ½ cup of milk with heavy whipping cream and water. My guest love it as it taste amazing.
  • Do you want some extra spice, stir in some jalapeño slices.

How do you make creamed corn thicker?

If the creamed corn is not thick enough, you can add equal parts cold water and cornstarch. Just mix in a small bowl before adding to the crockpot. Combine with the ingredients and let simmer a few more minutes.

If the corn starch and water doesn’t do the trick, you can always add in a little more cream cheese to thicken up the sauce.

Can you make creamed corn on the stove top?

Yes, you can! If you would like to make your cream corn on the stove top you can. The creamed corn still comes out so creamy and easy to make. You want to make sure that you are stirring occasionally to prevent it from sticking or burning.

We often cook cream corn on the stove for a quick side dish when I have been gone all day. Either way, it will still be your family’s favorite side dish.

You can also freeze your creamed corn. As long as you freeze it in freezer safe container than it will last up to about 6 months.
