Imagine a side dish that perfectly combines the sweetness of corn with the rich creaminess of a delectable sauce. Say hello to Crock Pot Creamed Corn – a dish that will leave you craving more with every bite.
Forget what you know about ordinary creamed corn because this recipe takes it to a whole new level. It has become a Thanksgiving staple for me and now, I’m sharing it with you so you can elevate your holiday menu too.
A Slow-Cooker Delight
One of the best things about this recipe is that it is made in the Crock-Pot. No need to watch over it on the stovetop or worry about oven space. Simply combine the ingredients in just two minutes and let it cook away.
How To Make Crockpot Cream Corn
After four hours of slow cooking, a gentle stir is all it takes to serve this dreamy dish. Trust me, it’s hard to resist sampling it before it’s ready – I’ve been guilty of “sampling” it multiple times. The first bite at the table is always followed by exclamations of delight and requests for more.
Rudy’s Cream Corn – A BBQ Sensation
This creamed corn recipe was inspired by Rudy’s BBQ, a renowned barbecue chain. Although I’ve been a longtime fan of Rudy’s, I never got around to trying their creamed corn. Luckily, my friend Amber created this copycat recipe, and I’m grateful to have stumbled upon it. I can’t imagine creamed corn getting any better than this.
Slow Cooker Magic
If you’re familiar with my blog, you already know my love for slow cooker recipes. They make life so much easier, whether it’s waking up to a warm bowl of Slow Cooker Oatmeal or enjoying a flavorful CrockPot Roast Beef dinner. I’ve relied on my slow cooker for countless occasions, especially during busy holiday meals when oven and stovetop space is limited.
I have multiple slow cookers and each serves a specific purpose. For transporting food, I highly recommend a crockpot with a locking lid. It has accompanied me to potlucks, barbecues, and game nights. However, be cautious as these slow cookers run quite hot compared to others on the market.
For everyday use, an 8-quart Crockpot is perfect for cooking large roasts and generous portions of chili. And when I need to cook smaller recipes, a 3-quart version is just right. Thanksgiving has become a breeze since I started using medium-sized round slow cookers to hold all of my side dishes.
Creamed Corn Ingredients
To recreate Rudy’s Creamed Corn, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- Frozen corn
- Cream cheese
- Heavy cream
- Sugar, salt, and pepper
