Crockpot Creamed Corn
While you definitely need some good stuff for the main course, you should never neglect your side dishes when making dinner. Everyone’s going to love turkey, steak, or ham but you need side dishes made to complement your main courses. There are all sorts of veggies you could cook up, but I believe there’s always a place for corn!
Creamed corn always seemed to be a mystery to me. Chances are, you’re most familiar with it as canned cream corn- that weird, slimy stuff that gets the job done. It’s okay, but it doesn’t compare to this homemade cream-style corn! This isn’t a terribly hard side to make either- especially when you’ve got a trusty slow cooker or crockpot handy! Sure, you could make this creamy corn totally from scratch with fresh on the ear corn if you like but, we make it with less effort with this recipe.
This recipe is simple, with a corn cream made from a mixture of cream cheese, butter, and milk. Cook some frozen corn with that mix, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste, and add a little sugar to add a touch of sweetness and it’s perfect! This creamed corn recipe definitely deserves a spot at the dinner table this Thanksgiving or Christmas.

I always love serving green beans with corn and our Garlic Roasted Green Beans are our favorite pick! A simple blend of spices gives these beans plenty of flavors while they oven roast in a bit of butter and olive oil. Easy to make too!
Carrots are another popular side dish, and we can’t recommend our Honey Garlic Roasted Carrots enough! Roasted in a simple mix of honey, garlic, butter, and herbs, these carrots are the perfect mix of sweet and savory.
Cauliflower gets a bad rap, but Roasted Cauliflower is a simple but tasty side dish that’s easy to make. A bit of olive oil and a simple spice blend gives these healthy florets an amazing nutty flavor you and your guests will love!
