Slow Cooker Cheesy Creamed Corn Recipe


Happy 6th of July!

that's got to be a holiday somewhere, I'm thinking...
or we should make one up.

so you can eat corn with cheese.
or is it cheese with corn?

It probably doesn't really matter.

If you're on a diet, look the other way. This is some heavy corn, and it's stick-to-your-ribs comfort food. I ate too much, but I'm so happy I did, because I enjoyed every last bit--- including the two lonely niblets left stuck that I picked off before loading the plate into the washer.

The Ingredients.
serves 8

2 (16-ounce) packages frozen corn (no need to thaw)
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 tablespoons water
4 slices American cheese, crumbled

The Directions.

Use a 4 to 6 quart slow cooker. Empty the corn packages into your slow cooker. Unwrap the cream cheese and put the blocks on top. Add sugar and water, and fold the American cheese slices a few times, then crumble it in on top.
Cover and cook on low until everything is all melty---about six hours on low in my 4-quart. If you're using a big cooker, it'll cook a bit faster---check after 4 hours on low.

Stir well before serving.

That's it?
yup!!

The Verdict.

I fed this to my 2 big kids, the neighbor's kids, and my grandma. It's a winner, and I plan on making it again for a backyard barbecue party next week.

you should make this.

and then go to the gym. :-)

for a lighter and less-cheesy version, you can make this one that I did back during my challenge.

ps: I finished The Help last night, and loved it. You've still got plenty of time to read before our July 15 book club party. It's a fast read!

With 2 packages of cream cheese, this HAS to be good! I LOVE creamed corn but the family doesn't. So I'll have to come over next time you make it! :-)

Does it have to be American cheese? Not one of my favorites.

This could easily be lightened up quite a bit by substituting Neufchâtel "cream" cheese, or just out-and-out fat-free cream cheese. Sounds yummy!

This is also completely awesome with the addition of chopped green chilies.....mmmmmm

This looks delish. Do you think it will taste just as good if I use fat free cream cheese? Thanks!

This sounds so amazing! Wonder how it would work with fresh uncooked corn. And I wonder how many ears I would have to use. I have totally over-bought fresh corn and would hate for it to go to waste.

Debbie...we can do this dish together. My fam is not too enthusiastic about creamed corn either.

I made this for dinner last night. So worth the calories! I sprinkled some shredded cheese on top, I could eat the whole thing by myself.

I made this for a cookout/birthday party and it was DEVOURED! I use 1 block regular and 1 block of Neufchâtel "cream" cheese (with 1/3 less fat). I also used 2% sliced American cheese. It was sooo good. I now have to make it for every occasion and get-to-gether.

Hi Stephanie! This is really good simple but yummy recipe! I love cream cheese! I'm planning to make this after I visit the grocery tomorrow. Thanks!

Add shredded white cheddar instead of American cheese. Oh.My.Goodness.
