I never grew up eating creamed corn, but tried it at a friend’s house one time and was hooked! Where has creamed corn been all my life?!
I was planning out our menu for Thanksgiving this year and really wanted to serve creamed corn. When it comes to Thanksgiving cooking, I am all about ease and utilizing my slow cooker to make room in the oven for turkey, stuffing, etc.
This Slow Cooker Creamed Corn was the easiest and most delicious creamed corn I have ever made!

How to make Slow Cooker Creamed Corn:
There’s not much to this recipe, which is perfect if you are making this for the holidays. All you need to do is add two bags of frozen corn kernels, cream cheese, butter, milk, sugar and salt and pepper to a slow cooker and let the slow cooker do the rest of the work for you!
I didn’t even mix my ingredients after placing them in the slow cooker. I covered my slow cooker and let it cook for 4 hours on low, took the lid off, mixed everything together (making sure the cream cheese was completely incorporated) and it was ready to go.
It doesn’t get much easier than that!
After it is done cooking, you can place it in a serving dish or serve it directly from your slow cooker if you are wanting it to stay warm.
I garnished mine with fresh thyme before serving.
