You might want to print this recipe out, because everyone is going to ask for it! As a matter of fact it is sooo good that my picky 4 year old said to me tonight "Mommy, we should eat dinner before we eat dessert" as she was devouring her creamed corn. Yes that good.

I know I have mentioned a time or 10 how much I love corn, honestly I love it so much that I when I was younger I would eat a bowl of sweet corn for breakfast.  Well, now I am a bit more practical (most days), but I still love corn just about anyway I can get it. Whether it is oven roasted, stovetop, grilled, corn casserole, corn salad or this most fabulous slow cooked creamed corn, I would be happy to eat it every single day.
I have been working on my Best Ever Sides list.  It of course includes corn! So far I have gravy, stuffing, sweet potato casserole, best ever mashed potatoes and garlic rolls (coming this week) and can you believe I didn't have a creamed corn recipe on our website?  Well, we had to remedy that immediately.

My creamed corn is literally about the easiest recipe you'll ever find. You toss 6 ingredients in the slow cooker and voilà a few hours later, you have the most incredible creamed corn you have ever wrapped your lips around.

Cream cheese, milk, cream, butter and sugar come together to create the most amazing cream sauce for the sweet corn. After a few short hours it creates this glorious lightly sweet creamed corn that goes with everything.  This is absolutely NOTHING like the stuff you buy in the can.  This magnificent creation is truly the Best Creamed Corn I have ever eaten in my life!

With side dishes like these, you will have a 5 star Holiday Dinner at home. 

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.  

KITCHEN TOOLS: This recipe was prepared in this 4 quart Crock Pot. I love it for medium size recipes such as this one.

The Best Stuffing Recipe Ever starts with sausage, cranberry and apple. Herbs and spices are added in but the real magic happens as the pan is deglazed with the most glorious combination of liquids and those bits are scraped up creating the most magnificent sauce to bake the stuffing in. Oh my word!

  1. Hi Donna. This looks so good that I am going to fix this for Thanksgiving. One question though. Can this be made using canned corn and if so, does this change the cooking time? THANKS!

    1. You could use rinsed canned corn, but I would NOT recommend it. The texture would not be right. I would splurge and use frozen corn for this recipe. You will love it! Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

  2. I am wondering about the low setting. Is that for an older crock pot, or the newer, hotter crock pots? Thanks

  5. I never have 1% around or heavy cream... I use half and half for many things... can I combine the two and us 1/2 and 1/2?

    1. Half and half will be perfect. Enjoy and let us know how it foes.

  6. Wondering if you could "lighten" this up using Splenda, healthy margarine, 1% milk, fat free half and half etc? Anybody got any idea if this would work OK?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I have never used Splenda on this recipe, but as it is basically making a cream sauce I am confident it would. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

      Delete
    2. FYI- there is no such thing as "healthy"margarine, nor is the fat-free anything good for you. I suggest making it as-is and just eating a taste of it. Always go for "real" food and eat it in moderation.

      Delete
    3. Totally agree Christina. Don't eat those chemicals, they do much more harm than a little butter and cream.

      Delete
    4. I just had the same thought, there is no such thing as "healthy margarine". Your body needs good fats like e.v.coconut oil or butter, the combination with starches is what usually makes us gain weight.

  8. Call it "slow cooker" or "crock pot" and you've got my attention!! Best way ever to cook! Thank you for including the cooker size!!! I find that is always the common question in slow cooker recipes. This sounds remarkable! Pinning it!!

    1. Thanks for the awesome feedback Kim. I have been pulling out the slow cookers a lot more. And am looking at picking up another one this weekend so keep your eye out for more fabulous recipes.

    1. Keep an eye on it for the last hour, but it should be fine. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

  10. I was thinking of making this to take to my mom's for Thanksgiving, but my crockpot is really heavy...it's an old one. Will it be ok if I take it out at 4 hours, then reheat quickly in the microwave when we are ready to eat about an hour later?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That would work perfectly. You could even reheat it on the stove top if you like. Enjoy and let us know how it goes. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  11. Do you have any recommendations on making this in the oven? My crockpots will be occupied with stuffing & green bean casserole, but I really want to make this too :(

    Replies
    1. I would actually recommend the stovetop. The cook time would be much less though, perhaps 30 minutes or less. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

  12. I am going to double the receipe so will the cooking time be the same in a larger crock pot for the double batch ? Thanks you :)

    1. The time should not be off by much. I would keep an eye on it, but you are essentially warming the corn and creating the sauce. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

      Delete
  13. Would you adjust the cooking time at all if you double the recipe? I would think not, but thought I'd get your opinion! thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Would this work out if I use fresh corn? Possibly cut it off the cob then freeze a day before cooking?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think this would work great with fresh corn too. Enjoy and let us know how it goes. It may need a little extra milk, so if it is too thick add a splash until the consistency is to your liking.

  15. Wanting to know about the questions above. What if I double the recipe? Does the cook time change? And what about fresh corn? I just cut it off the cob. Thanks!

  18. How many cups of corn does it take to make 2 pounds?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Three and a third cups of frozen corn per pound ( answers .com ) SO...six and two thirds cups of frozen corn equal two pounds. I am gonna make this for a Christmas side dish, and use extra for corn chowder....in a couple days ...

  19. This is delicious! Nothing like that terrible stuff from a can. Next time I will cut the sugar by 1/3rd for my family's personal taste and I found that with my cooker I need to stir about half way through to ensure that the cream cheese melts completely. So easy and so good.

  20. I make this for every holiday and we love love love it! I took it somewhere new on Easter and had many requests for the recipe. Plus it's easy to make!!

  26. Hey Hi! A little typo in your creamed corn recipe made me wonder who the heck is Viola and why should I add her to the other 6 ingredients a few hours later! Wouldn't she object?

    "You toss 6 ingredients in the slow cooker and viola a few hours later...."

    I think you meant to type voilà!
    Thanks for the recipe and the chuckle! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. can i put less sugar, and use fresh corn? i'm diabetic and would not want to put more sugar to the starch (corn) would it change the taste?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Cooking for one I bought a mini crock and the lack of recipes for it is sad. If recipes for regular quantity serving could also indicate halving the recipe, in addition to doubling it, that would be great. I can halve the ingredients, but no one seems to be able to say how to adjust the cook time/temp.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Can this be made with Frozen Peas?
    I love creamed peas too.

  30. My friend doesn't have a crockpot and was wondering if this can be cooked on stovetop? If so, for how long? Thanks xx
