This rich, creamy corn with a hint of sweetness might just the ultimate side dish. Not only is this creamed corn scrumptious, but it’s also easy to make since the slow cooker does all the work! Free up your stovetop and oven during the holidays by making Creamed Corn in the crockpot!
Cream corn has been a favorite side dish at our family gatherings for years. When my boys were little, they would “wolf” down a bowl of this yummy corn and beg for more. Now, here’s the real story…my sister makes the BEST creamed corn ever. I’ve tried to duplicate her recipe but somehow, it just never comes out the same. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, the pressure was on and my dudes would be scanning the table for a big bowl of creamed corn. So, I had to come up with a recipe of my own. I investigated several different recipes but found them either too sweet or too soupy. Finally, after a few tries, I perfected the dish with just the right amount of sugar, seasoning, and liquid.
The big bonus for this recipe is that it’s made in the crockpot. This makes me happy for a number of reasons. One, you just full up the slow cooker with the corn and other ingredients then let it do its thing! Two, it frees up my stove and oven so that I have plenty of room to cook. Three, it’s an easy cleanup.
I really, really like this much loved, decadent dish. Now, mind you, I won’t be fixing this every week of the year, due to how much time I’ll have to spend in the gym working it off, but…for special occasions and for special people, I will happily put it on the menu.
- 1 bag (16 oz) frozen yellow corn
- 1 bag (16 oz) frozen white corn
- ½ cup (1 stick) butter, cubed
- 8 oz cream cheese, cubed
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- ½ cup milk or half & half
- ½ cup water
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- Place corn in crock pot. Add milk, water, salt and pepper. Mix together
- Add butter and cream cheese cubes to top of corn. Cover with lid and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours. When done, stir well to incorporate all ingredients. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Can I use can corn
Yep, you sure can!
Enjoy the recipe, Debbie.
When do add the sugar? It’s not in the directions unless that is adjusting the seasoning? Thanks
Great question! You add your sugar at the same time as your salt and pepper. The “taste and adjust seasonings” is for after it’s done cooking, you can add extra salt, pepper, or sugar depending on preference. I hope you enjoy, let me know how it turns out!
I also love creamed corn. Can this recipe be made on a stove-top. Thanks and many blessing.

Oh, how I love creamed corn. It is absolutely one of my favorite foods. This looks like a great recipe!!
Can this corn recipe be cooked at night and reheated the next day??
Hey Tina. Yep, you sure can make it the night before. Works great. Hope you like the recipe.
Can this dish be frozen – I have some leftovers.
Sure. I think it will be fine.
Donya, I am preparing for a family reunion and like your recipe for creamed corn using crock pot. I will be feeding 20 adults. Will one recipe be enough? With 2 bags of frozen corn, it looks like it will feed a crowd, I’ll appreciate your reply. Thanks for a great recipe blog!
Hey Laura! Wow, I’m honored to have one of my dishes at your reunion. I think you should double the recipe since you are having 20 folks. Thankfully, it’s a recipe that doubles beautifully so you should be good to go. Please let me know how the party goes and how they liked the recipe.
Made this for Thanksgiving, everyone loved it, and one daughter commented that although it was the newcomer to our dinner menu, it was the front runner! Mom (me!) was truly thankful to have found this easy, delicious and “low maintenance” new-to-us recipe. Now it’s Christmas Day, and I’m about to stir up the next batch. Since this is a rich dish, I asked (athlete) daughters “Is it too soon to have this again for Christmas?” The answer was “can’t be soon enough!! Thanks and Merry Christmas!!
This is great, Karen! I love your story, thank you for sharing. I’m sending you love and prayers for a great new year. Keep cooking, Mama!
When ever I make one of your recipes I get rave reviews and this one did not disappoint. I took this for the Staff Winter luncheon at my child’s school. Several people asked for the recipe and the crock pot was cleaned out. Thank you!
Oh my goodness! You have made my day, Shannon. I am so glad this recipe made you “look good” at the luncheon. Thank you so much for sharing your success and my recipe!
Have a wonderful Christmas with your precious family.
