Crock Pot Creamed Corn

A big holiday dinner wouldn’t be complete without rich flavorful creamed corn! It’s creamy, buttery, and cheesy. Everyone’s favorite holiday side dish!

We have a recipe for Creamed Corn that is made in a skillet, but I love how this crock pot version doesn’t require me to be hands on the entire time! It makes for a super easy side dish and great for busy holiday meals.

There are so many reasons I love creamed corn!

First of all, it’s super simple to make. Who doesn’t love an easy side dish recipe? Skip the canned cream corn and definitely go for homemade. Second, it’s creamy and incredibly indulgent. All of the ingredients mix together wonderfully. The flavors of this recipe are so good.

There is a reason creamed corn is a staple in many Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner meals. It’s easy to whip up, make ahead of time, and everyone loves it. The prep takes just a few minutes (packaged frozen corn for the win!) and this recipe is made in the crock pot which makes it even easier. Set and forget!

Corn kernels and cream mixture in slow cooker

2 steps – how to crock pot creamed corn

Start making your cream by using a medium sized saucepan to heat up the cream cheese, butter, milk, sugar, pepper and garlic salt. Mix everything together until well blended.

Place the frozen corn in the slow cooker and cover with the cream cheese mixture. Cook on high for 1 hour or low for 2-3 hours. Give it a good mix and make sure the corn is cooked through. It’s that easy – just two simple steps.

You can also double or triple this recipe if needed! Just make sure your slow cooker can hold that amount and double or triple the ingredients.

If you like your creamed corn to be thicker than normal, uncover your crockpot, and cook on HIGH for another 15 minutes. As it cools down, the corn will thicken even more. Make sure to serve your creamed corn warm!

How to store

If you have any leftovers (what!?) keep them in an airtight container and STORE them in the fridge. They will last for 4-5 days if stored properly.

    I stumbled upon this recipe In thanksgiving day as i was mindlessly perusing FB or IG and THOUGHT to myself, “maybe i should make this” instead of the plain heated up frozen corn i was planning on. I had all the ingrediEnts kn hand, so Into the crockpot it went. This dish was by far the star if iur thanksgiving meal. It was unpretentious but so amazingly Delicious. This one is definitely going to be on heavy rotation in my house!

    1. I personally have not tried, but you sure could. It may need more time, but I honestly don’t know for sure, since I haven’t tried.

    This creamed corn recipe is so delicious. There’s never any left when I make it. The consistency of this creamed corn is a winner too not too thick and not too runny.

  7. In the ingredients, garlic salt isn’t mentioned but in the instructions it is. Is garlic salt used or was it a typo?

    1. Thanks for catching that. Honestly, either would work! If you like a little more of a garlic flavor, the garlic salt is tasty! If you want to keep it more basic, you can use regular salt.
