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 crock pots around the holidays.  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 Creamed Corn (Crock Pot) Recipe 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? 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 in a Slow Cooker

  1. Place the butter and chopped onions in a skillet. Set over medium heat, and sauté until the onions are soft and translucent, about five minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. Cover the slow cooker, turn on high, and cook for 8-10 hours, stirring the corn every couple hours.
  4. About 1 hour before ready to serve, use a potato masher to smash part of the corn, to enhance the creamy texture. Don’t over mash! Then stir, cover, and resume cooking for the remaining hour until you’re ready to serve.

Voila! The easiest 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.

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.

Can I Make This Creamed Corn Recipe Vegan?

Yes! Creamed corn is naturally a vegetarian side dish, but you can make this a vegan recipe as well by subbing in your favorite plant-based butter, cream cheese, and milk.

If you are going to use a nut milk, I recommend one with the most mild flavor, like almond or cashew milk.

And side note: Yes, creamed corn is a gluten-free dish, too!

Will Creamed Corn Freeze Well?

Because of the dairy, I would not recommend freezing creamed corn.

You can keep cooled leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge.

  3. Yup, was just looking for a creamed corn recipe and this was a winner for my Friendsgiving!

  4. This was really amazing! Glad that you can make it in the slow cooker!

  5. This was a childhood favorite of mine! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

  6. Could you make this in the oven? If so how. What changes if any are necessary when you double the recipe?

  7. Was wondering if it makes a difference if I use salted butter instead of unsalted butter… Will it alter the taste too much?

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

    Thanks

  9. 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

  10. Oh my god, this is truly the best creamed corn recipe ever! Better than any restaurant and even better than my grandmas makes. Please don’t tell!

  11. I have made TONS of creamed corn recipes over the years, being a good southern girl. This one takes the cake! So fresh and creamy. Thank you for sharing!

  12. 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! :)

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