Slow Cooker Creamed Corn with Bacon
I love when my food is well-balanced. Salty and sweet is one of my favorite flavor combinations. This creamed corn recipe has sugar, bacon, and scallions for a pop of freshness. The most important ingredient is easily the cream cheese. It adds a tangy flavor and creaminess that you don’t get from canned cream corn!
When I first made this, I was a little bit skeptical. I wanted to try something new that wasn’t just buttered corn on the cob. Since we are a house of corn lovers, I figured I would put my spin on a the classic creamed corn recipe. Even my picky eaters love it.
Ingredients You’ll Need
Minimal ingredients are needed for this crockpot cream corn. You likely have most of these things in your kitchen already.
- Frozen Corn: This will go in the Crock Pot straight from the freezer – no need to defrost!
- Milk: I find that any type of milk works great in this recipe.
- Butter: I use unsalted but if you love salt, you can use salted butter.
- Cream Cheese: This should be cut into cubes so it melts easier and faster in the slow cooker.
- Bacon: Frying up fresh bacon and crumbling it is the way to go if you can.
- Scallions: These are sliced and used as a garnish with the bacon.
