Recipe Tips & Tricks
- You can easily double this recipe to feed a crowd. I love to do this on holidays because you end up with a side dish everyone loves, without taking up oven space.
- Creamed corn can also be made on the stove.Just pour the corn into a large pot or skillet, add the other ingredients, cover with a lid, then cook over medium heat until the butter and cream cheese are melted. Stir well and cook for a few more minutes on low heat.
- Canned corn will give the recipe a different flavor so stick with frozen sweet corn if you can.
- Feel free to add ground pepper to taste as necessary. Some also like to stir in some crushed garlic.
You can store this in the fridge for up to 3 days. Just be sure to keep it in an airtight container.
I do not recommend freezing this. The cream cheese texture will change and it won't be as smooth and creamy. But, since it comes together in just a few minutes, I haven't found any reason to freeze it.
You can serve this crock pot creamed corn for virtually any occasion.
If you have fresh corn from the garden, you can absolutely use that! A handful of corn cobs should be just enough.
