Slow Cooker Creamy Corn

This corn is soooo good. It is creamy and easy and cooks in the slow cooker freeing you up to do other things! It is a perfect side dish for almost any dinner and one the family is sure to love!

     Making fun and creative side dishes makes all of the difference at the dinner table. This slow cooker corn is going to have your family begging for more vegetables. We always make the full big batch even though there are only three of us. None ever goes to waste. Make some for your family to see for yourself!

     Our family is a corn loving family.  We aren't too picky about how we eat it, but we certainly have our favorite ways.

     When Little Dude sees this corn cooking, he gets excited.  With this batch he immediately exclaimed that he was going to have at least two helpings!

    The first time I made it, I had done 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!

      I love how easy it is to make. Just a few simple ingredients and a couple of hours in the slow cooker.

   It doesn't take any room on the stove or in the oven and you are free to work on the rest of dinner or have fun! Plus is goes well with so many things.

    It is perfect with pulled pork, or ham. It's great with grilled meat or would be fun with meatloaf.

      I am always all ears for new ways to make vegetables exciting. We also enjoy corn in scalloped corn and Kickin' Corn Dip.

  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!

    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!
