Not Creamed Corn

The Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Corn is different from regular creamed corn. If you’re looking for creamed corn, HERE is the recipe. Our Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Corn is made with cream cheese! The cream cheese in this dish makes it so creamy and delicious and I think the slow cooking makes the corn seem more like a corn pudding. I love the no worry method of adding everything to the slow cooker and just stir before serving.

Perfect make ahead dish!

It’s the perfect side dish to make a day or two ahead because the dish can be placed in the fridge and pulled out whenever needed! Make ahead also frees up the oven or stovetop for other meal prep, creating space for other dishes. To make ahead, follow the notes in the recipe instructions.

Can I use Low Fat Cream Cheese in this recipe?

Low fat cream cheese lessens the calorie load and still allows for a creamy and rich side dish! The original recipe called for double the amounts of cream cheese and butter, and also a bit more corn, I adapted this to a smaller serving size, and a bit lighter overall finished dish. The original amounts are in the recipe notes.

A Delicious Side Dish
