Creamed Corn Crock Pot Recipe – a rustic southern classic side dish with creamy silky appeal! Super easy and delicious, creamed corn will become a new favorite!
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.
How To Make Creamed Corn
This recipe couldn’t be any easier…
- Place the butter and chopped onions in a skillet. Set over medium heat, and sauté until the onions are soft.
- Pour the onions and butter into the crock of a large slow cooker. Add the corn, cream cheese, sugar, cornmeal, paprika, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, and milk.
- Cover the slow cooker, turn on high, and cook for 8-10 hours, stirring the corn every couple hours.
- About 1 hour before ready to serve, use a potato masher to smash part of the corn, to enhance the creamy texture. Then stir, cover, and resume cooking until ready to serve. Voila! The Best Creamed Corn!
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.
