Growing up my mom always pushed us to eat more vegetables. Peas, Carrots, Tomatoes, Wax Beans, etc. While I was fine with peas, I wanted nothing to do with the other veggies. Except for Cream Corn. I love cream corn. Especially when served with mash potatoes. So I just had to perfect this Slow Cooked Cream Corn recipe.
If you are like me, and like cream corn, you probably take the easy way out and get your cream corn from a can. Well here is a super easy recipe for you to try and all you need are a few simple ingredients and a slow cooker.
💭 Recipe Tip
While you can pretty much use any brand of cream cheese, I highly recommend you use Philadelphia brand cream cheese. You will taste the difference.
Try to resist as much as possible the temptation to open the lid while it's cooking as the slow cooker loses heat. By just opening the lid to stir the contents can make the internal temperature drop by 10°F to 15°F.
This cream corn is so good you will never go back to a can. For another great veggie side dish, check out my Honey Garlic Roasted Carrots or my Baked Asparagus with Parmesan recipe. Delish!
