This Slow Cooker Creamed Corn is so easy — just mix it together and throw it in! It has no cream and is a healthier option that tastes just as good (with dairy free options)!

Do you remember when Pinterest was invite only? Weird, right??

I remember refusing to be a part of the silliness, just like I refused to be a part of Facebook when it came out. I had one friend who would send me those automatic emails inviting me to join Facebook like 18 times before I finally caved.

And now? I can’t imagine what my life would be without Pinterest or Facebook. Can you imagine how much I’d get done?!

I hear there are things you can install on your computer that will block a certain web site after a certain amount of time. That’s probably something I should look into! I could get lost in the depths of social media for hours at a time. By the time I’ve checked Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Periscope, Snapchat… it’s time to start all over again.

The inspiration for this recipe was one of my first recipe finds on Pinterest, and it’s one I still use today! The ingredients for this recipe are from the Southern Skillet Corn recipe on Kevin and Amanda, but I wanted to adapt it and make it a slow cooker recipe, because (a) slow cookers are awesome, and (b) the holidays are crazy enough!

I’m a big fan of doing part of your holiday meal in the slow cooker, either the main dish, a veggie or some potatoes… it really takes some of the stress out! Slow cooker dishes are also fabulous for potlucks — it’s so easy to bring the slow cooker along and just plug it in when you get where you’re going!

I want to know — what’s your favorite holiday dish to cook in the slow cooker?

    Just made this ahead for Thanksgiving dinner. I used 3 bags of frozen corn (10-12 ounce size), recipe as directed. The only thing I did a little different was to use my hand blender several hours in, and just broke down 1/3 – 1/2 of the kernels, this made it extremely creamy but still plenty of niblets for texture. Delicious and easy, will make again! So glad it’s without dairy for several people who can’t have it (put in a small amount of non-dairy margarine).


    Why does this show 3 stars? Every comment is positive. I almost didn’t add this because of the low star rating… going to try it this year

    Haha I think I would get SO much more done without being sucked into facebook and pinterest! This creamed corn is calling my name! It’s one of my favorite dishes, yet I hardly ever make it. Love this slow cooker version!

    Haha – sounds like you need a doctored up version of those governors used on cars to notify them they are going over a certain speed – though i gotta admit – social media – especially Pinterest can be pretty addicting!
    BTW – I love that this has no cream in it and I’m blown away by the simple and easy ingredient list! Thanks so much for sharing!
