11th Day of Christmas: Creamed Corn with Variations  
Okay this is by far one of my favorite recipes for a slow cooker. I absolutely love this and while I've posted it before I thought I'd do so again with some added variations I've found online. Now I have to tell you I've already had some of this at our extended family Thanksgiving but I have to admit I want it again and it is such an easy recipe. The best kind of recipes are the ones you just dump together and let sit.

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)

Additions (all optional):
1/2 to 1 jalapeno chopped up (as you desire)
4-5 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled up
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp parsley (fresh or dried)

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.

The additional ingredients are all optional. But I will tell you the jalapeno is the way we always make it and it is beyond delicious that way. And while the bacon one sounds delicious... I haven't made it and I'm not sure I would change it. Now I might just add garlic occasionally because garlic is delicious! Parsley is a great ingredient which doesn't change the flavor but occasionally enhances what is already in the recipe.

For our big family gatherings (20-30 people) we double this recipe but for a smaller family gathering this recipe should be fine. If you are going to double it you might need to add a little flour to thicken it up.

Ah, I read this recipe, and I think I don't really need a slow cooker to make it work \o/

I don't think so either but it is nice for those who have them.

I'm loving your Christmas ideas posts. So many clever things to make. I've made this creamed corn dish four times since you first posted the recipe. We LOVE it. I'll probably make it again for Christmas dinner. I always make it with the peppers, but I might add some garlic and bacon next time.

Thank you. I loved finding them all and while a lot are goodies there are some crafts and real food mixed in.

We had it for Thanksgiving. I love that Creamed Corn recipe. I do want to try it with Garlic but I don't know about the Bacon.

Anyways, I hope it all comes out good.
