Slow Cooker Creamy Corn


     MiMi decided she was making BBQ beef for family dinner this week.  She already had an ice cream sundae bar planned for dessert, so I offered to make a vegetable.  I figured Jax and I would go early to play, so I wanted to make something in the slow cooker.  That way we could head over whenever we wanted to and the side would be ready when it was time to eat.



    We all love corn, so I knew a creamy corn dish would be perfect.  I did some hunting on Pinterest  and found some great options, but as I multiplied them out the proportions got a little crazy.  Most of them would have wanted me to use a pound of cream cheese and a half pound of butter for 2 pounds of corn.  Don't get me wrong, I am sure it would have been delicious but it seemed a bit ridiculous!  So, I scaled back quite a bit and we ended up with something where you could still taste the corn but had a decadent creamy base to go with it.  My brother Collin told me how good it was at least three times during dinner! We all loved it and there was almost nothing left at the end of dinner!

Slow Cooker Creamy Corn

Ingredients:

2 lbs. frozen corn
8 ounces Neufchatel cheese (or regular cream cheese)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1 T sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground pepper

  1. Dump all ingredients into your slow cooker (I used my 4 quart insert, I have this slow cooker with interchangeable crocks)
  2. Cook on high for one hour.  Stir and cook for one hour longer.

  1. Hi Carlee, look at all the creamy deliciousness! My family loves canned creamed corn....and I love corn too, just not canned! I know they would absolutely love this!
    P.S. tell Jax, my husband doesn't like to share his applesauce either. In fact, when I made the cake, he was a little grumpy I used his applesauce!! ;) Have a beautiful day!

    1. I have a hard time with the canned stuff too. After having fresh and frozen it is hard to accept the canned, but I have a brother that likes it too. Those boys and their applesauce! I would gladly trade applesauce for a cake any day. Especially one that looks as delicious as that one!

  3. Carlee, that sounds soooo good. I'm with you -- so many similar recipes call for ridiculous amounts of other ingredients for the amount of corn.

    1. I thought it would be nice to actually be able to taste the corn! This turned out to be a really good ratio of corn to creamy. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. Mmmm! That looks good! One of my husband's favorite dishes is corn. I'm from the south and one of the things that my mom always had on the table was fried corn. It's really like cream style corn but you make it in an iron skillet.

    1. My husband really like corn too! My little guy is a big fan also. It is one of the few vegetables I know they will both eat. I'll have to try some fried corn, I love cooking in my cast iron skillets!

  7. Thanks for the slow cooker corn recipe. I love the slow cooker especially during our hot August nights and everyone in the family eats corn. Come share this post at Snickerdoodle Sunday. The party is in full swing. Here is the link. http://www.sewtravelinspired.com/ Our party goers would love it. While you're there share a comment on a natural wonder near you.

    1. It is a winner. I love being able to throw everything in the slow cooker and hang out with everyone rather than having to cook while friends and family are having fun! I will certainly stop over!

  12. Would this work as well doubled in a 6 quart crock pot? I don't have an oven right now, and we have covered dish every Sunday afternoon. I would love something I could dump into the crock first thing in the morning and it's done for lunch.

    1. I don't see why that wouldn't work. I would probably add a little time to the cook time, but I wouldn't think it would take much of a change at all! You'll have to let me know how it goes!
