Tools Used In This Crock Pot Creamed Corn:

Slow Cooker: Love this slow cooker and how programmable it is, it has been a workhorse for me… until…
My New Slow Cooker: This beauty arrived only a few days ago and I’m already going gaga for it. Obviously common sense says you do not need such an expensive option, but the thing I LOVE about it is the cast aluminum insert that I can brown in and put in the oven. Now for roasts I can brown the meat in the insert and not lose a bunch of the flavor by transferring the meat and leaving the browned bits behind. If you’re thinking of a new slow cooker, consider it if your budget is open. (this slow cooker will be appearing more and more in the future on here) ps. totally not a sponsored plug even though I have worked with them before, this beauty was out of pocket!
Kosher Salt: 3 pounds for less than 3 dollars I have had the same box for 2 years and the difference in flavor between table salt and Kosher Salt is night and day. Once you start cooking with it you will hardly use table salt again.
Old Bay Seasoning (optional): The perfect option for a quick New Englad style fix, I also use it on fries and meats.

  • 2 pounds frozen sweet yellow corn (I use either Trader Joes Super Sweet or Whole Foods Organic Frozen Corn)
  • 1/2 cup milk (anything but non-fat)
  • 4 tablespooons butter , salted or unsalted (if you use salted skip the Kosher salt below)
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese (anything but nonfat)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar*
  • Chopped parsley for garnish


  • Add everything but the parsley to your slow cooker leaving the cream cheese on top.
  • Cook on low for 4 hours or on high for 2.
  • Take the lid off and stir, then let cook and additional 15-20 minutes with the lid off.
  • Stir again, the mixture should be thicker than before you took the lid off.
  • Garnish with the chopped parsley and serve.
  • Check for flavor, you can additionally add salt or pepper if needed, but remember creamed corn isn't necessarily meant to be particularly salty like a corn on the cob could be.


Recipe adapted from Gimme Some Oven <---serious blogging idol right there.
* If you use a normal frozen corn (ie. not a super sweet) you can add this sugar. Using the Trader Joe's Super Sweet one or another labeled as "sweet" I would not add the additional sugar.

  1. Best recipe ever! My boyfriend and I really enjoyed. Thank you! We have plenty for dinner tomorrow too! I definitely want to make this again soon.

  2. This was my first time making creamed corn. I tried it many many years ago from a can, and I hated what had been done to my beloved whole kernel corn. I made this recipe for Thanksgiving potluck at my job and it was a hit. A few co-workers even asked for the recipe for their own Thanksgiving dinners. I used 2% lactose free milk. I was afraid that the cream cheese would come back to haunt me, but it didn’t. I think I’ll spice it up for Christmas since my family likes to barbecue for Christmas.

  3. The recipe sounds delicious. I was wondering if I could make a big batch in the summer when fresh corn is plentiful and can it for the winter months

  4. Creamed corn is so good! I always make it on the stove top but I can’t wait to make it in the slow cooker now!

  5. I love that you can make this in the slow cooker! I haven’t had creamed corn in forever, I need to have some soon!

  6. Oooh I love the alternate flavorings you added to mix this dish up! I also love this recipe is for a crockpot.

  7. We used to visit our family in Pennsylvania and purchase fresh corn off the side of the road in the summertime. While I won’t find farmers selling their corn on the side of the road in Texas, I’ve still gotta try this. How could I not? Creamed corn is one of my all-time favorite dishes year-round, but I’ve never made it at home.
