This Crock Pot Creamed Corn Recipe is sooooo easy to make and tastes amazing! I mean seriously amazing. I may have a new favorite treat for year-round.
Crock Pot Creamed Corn Recipe
This recipe not only saves you space in the oven on Thanksgiving but it uses items that are probably already in your freezer!
We have talked in the past about how much we love stocking our freezer with fruits and veggies. The University of California, Davis in partnership with the Frozen Food Foundation conducted a study that revealed that frozen fruit and vegetables are most often nutritionally equal to and some cases better than their fresh counterparts!
One more reason to keep a fully stocked freezer with all of your favorite fruits and veggies. By freezing your favorite fruits and veggies you are pushing natures pause button which helps each of us save money and enjoy our favorite fruits and veggies year-round.
We don't have to worry about the cost of fresh out of season produce, you don't have to worry about opening the crisper drawer and finding your fruits and veggies spoiled before you had the chance to eat them.
I have found that having a stocked freezer saves us so much time and stress. I don't feel like we have to run out and grab something for dinner or worry about what I am going to prepare. I have all of our favorites stocked in the freezer and can buy them when they are the best price.
This Crock Pot Creamed Corn Recipe was a super simple recipe to prepare thanks to our stocked freezer. I grabbed frozen corn, butter, and cream cheese and the recipe was pretty much-taken care of.
This recipe is perfect for a quick and easy side dish that your family will love!
Crock Pot Creamed Corn
- Frozen corn
- Cream cheese
- Salt and pepper
You can easily double or triple this recipe depending on how big of a feast you are serving.
You can use frozen or canned corn for this recipe. I tend to use whatever we have in the house.
One thing I love about this creamed corn crockpot recipe is you can easily add in more corn if you find out more people are coming over than planned. The cream cheese coating may be a little thinner than originally planned but it still tastes amazing.
There have been years I have dumped in another 2 cans of corn because we found out more people were going to be at my husband's families Thanksgiving than we thought would be there.
If you are serving a large crowd you can easily double or triple this recipe. I have made it with upwards of 6-8 cans of corn in the past for huge family gatherings. Just make sure to stir it completely so all of the corn gets coated.
If you are doing a large batch you can add the cream cheese/butter/sugar in layers. Use the regular recipe twice or three times depending on how big of group your are feeding.
I store the slow cooker creamed corn leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. It heats up great in the microwave the next few days.
