What could be easier than throwing together a few simple ingredients into a slow cooker this holiday season to have the perfect side dish ready and waiting to be served? This is a no-brainer recipe for Slow Cooker Creamed Corn because you can start with these basic ingredients and adjust the flavor and texture to your liking.
Our family prefers the creamed corn to be more creamy than lumpy so I like to use an immersion blender at the beginning of the cooking process just to blend it up a bit and give it a nice creamy base. Blending releases more milk from the corn adding to the rich flavor of the Slow Cooker Creamed Corn. Fresh corn is always preferred but since it's December... frozen corn it is!

Gr8 Tips:Use Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners for easy cleanup. For a pretty presentation, pour corn mixture into an oven proof pie plate or dish and sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top; then broil for a few seconds until lightly browned.
