This Creamy Corn for a Crowd is a breeze to make and is definitely included among our favorite slow cooker potluck recipes! Don't be surprised that the cream cheese still retains its block shape after 4 hours of's very soft and blends easily when stirred.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (32-ounce) bag frozen whole kernel corn
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter

What to Do

  1. Place corn in a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Sprinkle corn with salt and sugar; drizzle with water. Place cream cheese and butter on top of corn mixture (do not stir).
  2. Cover and cook on LOW setting 4 hours. Stir well before serving.


Garnish with bacon bits for an extra-special taste.

So, how is the butter and cream cheese to be put in (what form)? Pats, chunks, melted, blobs, etc. and then not stir? Has all the stuff I like but don't know about the question I posed. I'm a guy so like to understand everything to the point...

We made this for Christmas Day dinner. Turned out great. Everyone enjoyed it. Will make again in the future. Just fix it and forget it till time to serve.

Instead of corn, try a bag of mixed vegetables

A little less cream cheese.

Can you use thawed corn and cook less in slow cooker?

excellent, been making it since 2011.

We tried this recipe about 3 years ago for Thanksgiving and have made it for every big holiday ever since. We also cut the amount of cream cheese in half and it still has plenty of flavor.

This looks very easy, but it would seem like a lot of cream cheese to me. I make something similar, but I use milk, and chopped scallions to give it more color appeal....and I only use about half the amount of cream cheese. With all these five stars, I am going to try it exactly as it appears here. One question though, has anyone made it using reduced fat cream cheese? I am always looking for idea to make recipes a little more healthy.

Hi there! Yes, the Test Kitchen says that reduced-fat cream cheese would work well in this recipe. Enjoy!

If you want to make this more healthy, keep the full fat cream cheese (fat is necessary to the body) and cut out the SUGAR! That is what's not healthy in this recipe and not needed.

Except I use milk not water, I have been making this since 8th Grade Foods class 43 years ago. It is the only way my mother likes corn. One year I suggested an alternative to this side for Christmas my older sister pitched a fit. Good thing it is both well liked a breeze to make.

This is the BEST corn I've ever had! The only change I made was adding more corn because it was too much cream cheese so next time I will only use half. Leftovers were just as good the next day. Definitely add the bacon, that's what makes it so DELISH!

hey you!!! gonna try it today thank you so much ms.barkery!!!!

I have a friend who makes this and adds jalapeno peppers to it. It is DELICIOUS. I don't know how much she adds so it would have to be to your taste.

ok to double recipe without any changes?

You can double the recipe without any changes!

Can this be made in another manner other than the slow cooker?

Yes! You can make this in a skillet on the stove. Just heat the cream cheese and other ingredients until melted and then stir in the corn. Enjoy!

Absolutely great! Will make this again for sure.

I have made this several times and everyone always enjoys it. I go exactly by the recipe only use milk in place of the water.

I have made this for several years for Thanksgiving and or Christmas dinner. I use milk in place of water. Always a big hit and never any leftovers!

Based on Proudmommy's suggestion, I used 6 oz of cream cheese and 6 tbsps. of butter and this was delicious. I served it for Thanksgiving dinner without testing out the recipe first, usually not a good idea, but all of my guests (14 in all) raved about how delicious the cream corn was. This was much better than anything served in a can. I will have to decide if I will cut back the recipe for everyday dinners or save the recipe for special occasions.

Me and the hubby thought it was a little too creamy and buttery for our taste. We loved the taste of it but next time, we will cut down the amount of butter and cream cheese in half. Should still be delicious and more figure-friendlyish :)

Add a can of diced chiles to this recipe for a real southwestern kick! YUM! :)
