Creamed Corn

This silky Crock Pot Creamed Corn Recipe is a wonderful side dish for holiday meals. It’s comforting, with a grainy-sweet flavor and creamy texture.

Speaking of holiday meals, when taking on a big holiday feast, you’ve got to do a little (a lotta) planning ahead.

It’s important to figure out your cookware, oven space, and timing beforehand so you don’t find yourself in a pinch at the last minute.

I like to make the most of my crockpots around the holidays. Therefore, there are a few dishes I can start really early in the day, that don’t need to use up my stovetop or oven space. This recipe is one of those recipes!

What Makes This Crock Pot Creamed Corn The Best?

My secret ingredients that make this Creamed Corn better than ever are cream cheese and cornmeal. Adding these two ingredients together provides a luxurious, yet rustic, texture and thick consistency.

There’s also a bit of paprika snuck in there that gives this creamed corn some depth in flavor.

Best of all, It is a crock pot/slow cooker recipe SO in other words, it’s easy as pie.

If pie is hard for you then let’s say it’s a piece of cake… Creamy corn cake…. And what is easy is also the best. Right?

How Do I Make Sure My Creamed Corn Is The Right Texture?

It’s important to smash the corn with a potato masher a little about an hour before you are ready to serve the Slow Cooker Creamed Corn to give it the perfect homespun texture.

Your mashing skills will determine the texture you get, but it shouldn’t vary much. Just mash away and stop when you are happy with the consistency.

It’s 8-10 Hours On HIGH!? – I Don’t Want To Burn It.

If you are starting with frozen corn, it will definitely take a full 8 hours on high… As long as you are using a standard slow cooker and not a higher heat multi-cooker.

Most slow cookers’ High settings are between 200-250 degrees F. It’s a worry free recipe, so just set it and forget it.

What If I Don’t Have A Crock Pot Or Slow Cooker?

Don’t worry! I also have stovetop directions in the recipe card below. It is just as delicious and easy.

Make this recipe however you prefer, crock pot or stove top.

    Question!  Does the cornmeal give the cream corn a  rough texture….I’m thinking of the texture that corn bread has.

    Thanks

    Awesome. My family loves creamed corn and what a great dish for me to take to our family Thanksgiving gathering.
    In place of the frozen corn, why couldn’t a person use canned corn that has been well drained

    I have this question too!  I just came on here to find out if anyone can confirm that it’s 8-10 hours on HIGH – i don’t want to burn it.

      Hi Angela!

      If you are starting with frozen corn, it will definitely take a full 8 hours on high… As long as you are using a standard slow cooker and not a higher heat multi-cooker. Most slow cookers’ “high” settings are between 200-250 degrees F.

      Hope this helps! :)
