When taking on a big holiday feast, you’ve got to do a little planning ahead.

It’s important to figure out your cookware, oven space, and timing before hand 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 so there are a few dishes I can start really early in the day, and don’t need to use up my stovetop or oven space.

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

It’s also important to mash 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.

This couldn’t be any easier. Simply sautee onions with butter for a few minutes, to soften them. Then add the corn (frozen or fresh) to a crockpot, followed by the onions and butter, milk, a little cornmeal, a little sugar, and some spices.

Smoked paprika is another secret ingredient that adds a tons of flavor, without overpowering the corniness.

    I do not have a slow cooker but will try this in a regular pot.

    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! :)
