A favorite side!
There are so many reasons I love Creamed Corn!
It makes an easy side dish, especially when made in a crockpot! This Slow Cooker Creamed Corn is creamy and incredibly indulgent. All of the ingredients mix together wonderfully, and the flavors are so good!
There is a reason Creamed Corn is a staple on many Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas dinner menus and is especially popular served with a Roast Turkey. It’s easy to whip up ahead of time and saves oven space!
The prep takes just a few minutes (packaged frozen corn for the win!) and is made in the crock pot making it even easier. Set it and forget it!
2 step crockpot creamed corn
Skip the canned corn and enjoy the taste of this Creamed Corn in a Crock Pot!
SAUCE. Use a medium-sized saucepan to heat up the cream cheese, butter, milk, sugar, pepper, and garlic salt. Mix until well blended.
CORN. Place the frozen corn in the slow cooker and cover it with the cream cheese mixture. Cook on HIGH for 1 hour or LOW for 2-3 hours, making sure to mix before serving.
Double or triple as needed. Be sure your slow cooker can hold that amount and double or triple the ingredients.
Thicken it up
For thicker Creamed Corn, uncover the crockpot and cook on HIGH for another 15 minutes. As it cools down, the corn will thicken even more. Make sure to serve Creamed Corn warm!
For additional thickening options:
- To increase the creaminess, take a ¼-½ cup of the dish and blend it until smooth. Add it back into the main mixture and stir.
- Use a cornstarch slurry: for every 2 cups of Creamed Corn, mix 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of cold water in a separate bowl. Once the cornstarch has dissolved in the water, pour it into the Creamed Corn. Stir and let it cook for another 30 minutes.
Add more flavor to Slow Cooker Creamed Corn.
- For a bit of heat, stir in diced jalapeños, peppers, or cayenne pepper. Top with red chili flakes or hot sauce.
- Sprinkle cooked crumbled bacon on top.
- Mix in diced onion or garnish with chopped green onions.
