This delicious slow cooker creamed corn is the perfect comfort food. You can eat it just on its own or as a side to another dish.
There isn’t a massive amount of ingredients required for this dish, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be delicious. If you’re a fan of corn and cream cheese, then this dish is made for you.
One great thing that I love about this recipe is how easy it is to get right. All you need to do is dump the ingredients into a slow cooker and wait until it’s ready for eating.
Creamed corn is the kind of side dish that you will find at a thanksgiving meal or just a regular family roast. It’s cheesy, delicious, and certainly worth making.
What to Serve with Creamed Corn
This dish is perfect just on its own, but there is also a lot of meals that go great with a side of creamed corn.
The corned beef is also a meal that pairs excellently with this delicious dish. Like the examples above, you can make the corned beef in a slow cooker or crock-pot.
It’s up to you what you have with this dish, but I found this fulfilling enough to just eat it on its own.
Altering the recipe
There aren’t many ingredients that you will need for this delicious dish. You can always alter the recipe if you feel like it needs a bit of adjusting.
You’re able to use fresh corn kernels if you have some around, but I opted for the tinned variety. Make sure you drain the tinned corn kernels before adding them to the slow cooker.
Some crispy bits of bacon is an excellent addition to this recipe. I recommend adding roughly half a cup for the best bacon experience.
Another ingredient that I sometimes love to add is some chopped jalapenos. It adds not only a bit of heat but also some more flavor.
If you come up with an even better variation, then feel free to leave a comment below.
How long does Creamed Corn Last
Creamed corn will last in the fridge for a few days, so make sure you don’t throw out any leftovers. It’s excellent for use in other recipes or just to eat on its own.
You can also freeze this dish, but I recommend avoid doing so if possible. I find heavy dairy meals don’t tend to reheat the best. However, feel free to give it a go.

- If you love things cheesy, then you can always add a bit more cheese to the dish. Something like a strong cheddar will work well.
- The dairy in this dish should not split as it might in other dishes. Dairy tends to split when cooked for an extended amount of time, and it’s an important slow cooker tip to keep in mind when adding dairy to your slow cooker food.
