Crock-Pot Creamed Corn
I LOVE creamed corn, and let’s be frank…anything with cream cheese is a good thing!
This recipe for creamed corn made in the slow cooker could not be easier to make. It makes the perfect side dish for any dinner and is especially nice I think for taking to a potluck.
This recipe has just 5 ingredients – corn, cream cheese, butter, and a little bit of sugar and salt.
Yes, I know it is not the healthiest recipe out there…but it is creamed corn and it is a side dish not the main deal…
If you want to lighten it up you can use reduced fat cream cheese or neufchatel cheese, omit the butter or use your favorite butter substitute. The sugar and salt are what brings this dish that sweet corn flavor and there really isn’t much in there. But play around with it and season it at the end to your liking!
If corn is in season then by all means please use fresh corn cut off the cob (I love this handy dandy corn cutter tool) but if fresh corn is not available by all means, use some frozen corn. You don’t even need to thaw it or cook it. Just toss it in the slowcooker straight from the bag.
Additionally you can turn this recipe into a lovely Tex-Mex version of creamed corn by adding some diced red bell pepper and using a little bit of cumin. Oh my… heaven!
