Slow Cooker Corn Casserole From Scratch


      Corn casserole has long been a favorite side dish in our family.  My in-laws love it too, so it shows up at a lot of celebratory dinners, holidays and even BBQs.  It is one of those simple sides that everyone is happy to eat.  But sometimes you don't want to turn on the oven... or the oven is already full.  So I thought this would be a perfect slow cooker side.  And you know what? I was right!



      I would imagine you could take our classic Corn Casserole in a slow cooker too.  But I never have the little boxes of mix on hand and quite frankly I never have cans of corn on hand either.  Sometimes you have to make due with what you have, so I created a recipe that does just that.  What I do always have on hand is flour, sugar, eggs, oil, frozen corn and milk.  We also always have cornmeal on hand.  I like to dust my pizza pans with it when we make homemade pizza, which is an almost weekly endeavor.  So this recipe is perfect because it is all things we use anyway!  I don't even have to add anything to my grocery list as everything is a pantry staple around here.


     There are a few things that I really love about this.  Of course, there is the fact that it doesn't require the oven which is handy in so many circumstances.  Then there is the fact that what little prep work it does take is done hours ahead of the big meal.  All in all, it is an easy, delicious, family pleasing side dish that is sure to become a favorite.  I love making it in my casserole crock pot. but you could definitely make it in your favorite slow cooker.

    1. Isn't it nice to have some sides that don't take up that valuable oven space?

    1. How have you survived this long without it? Some people call it corn pudding, maybe you know it that way?! Otherwise you need to get acquainted ;-)
