25 Days of Christmas: Homemade Creamed Corn  

As we all know, food seems to be a huge part of the holiday season. So when my cousin introduced me to this delicious side dish, I had to share it with all of you. It is beyond fantastic though we've tweaked it a little.

4 cups frozen corn (1 lb 3 oz family sized bag)
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper (plus more for serving)
1/2 to 1 jalapeno chopped up* (as you desire)

Mix It Up:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a 3 quart slow cooker, don't worry about mixing thoroughly, just throw it all in.

  2. Cook on high for 1 hour, stir, then cook an additional hour.

  3. Serve with fresh ground black pepper.

So my cousin made this for Thanksgiving and it was beyond delicious. She doubled it because she was feeding 20-30 people but she didn't doublt the cream cheese. This lead her to need to add a little flour to thicken it up a bit but the result was still amazing. I do wonder if it had double the cream cheese if it would have been over the top? She also only put in 1 jalapeno into a double batch but we all thought it would be better with 1 1/2 - 2. Many in the family don't like things to be too hot but just a kick makes us all happy.

My favorite part about this recipe is it is a combine and leave recipe. Oh and you use the crockpot. So if you are cooking Christmas Dinner and you've got a stove top covered with pans and a over full of turkey or ham, you can still get this cooking and not have to think about it much.

*our family added this and it is amazing

The frozen corn you get, is that raw? Because we get sweet corn in cans that are pre-cooked, I think. At least they are squishy and you can eat them right out of the can. I guess that would cut the cooking time by a lot and cut out the sugar?

No, the frozen corn is cooked. It just needs to be heated so canned corn would work too. If your corn comes with sugar in it already, I'd leave out that sugar from the recipe or just add a little.

I think ours comes in water. It only really cooks for an hour in a slow cooker so that is considerable fast for a slow cooker. I'd think the cook time would be the same.
