Slow-Cooker Creamed Corn makes an easy no fuss side for your holiday gathering. Thanksgiving is less than a week away, let the side dish cook while you work on your main dish. If you’re watching your diet, then I will suggest you save this for cheat day because it isn’t diet-friendly. It has butter, cream, cheese, heavy cream, and sugar. Put it in the Ninja Cooking System and forget it. It’s that simple. Granted, the recipe has everything your trainer told you to stay away from, but don’t fret everything is in moderation right? At least that’s what I keep telling myself.
Confession, it took everything for me not to add jalapeno to this, I have in the past and it was a welcome addition so please do as you please.
One of the reasons, why I like this, is the fact that it eliminates some of the stress of planning Thanksgiving menu. Almost everyone asked for seconds, it’s sweet but not too sweet. It’s creamy and so satisfying.
Anyway, back to the recipe. One of the reasons, why I look forward to Thanksgiving, is for the food and also it’s a time to see family members that live hours away. A chance to catch up with them and see what they have been up to and what better way to do that than with food. This recipe would also work for a potluck.
Bonus tip, if by some weird chance you happen to have some leftover. I suggest you pair it with creole shrimp, you won’t regret it. It is amazing. You make the creole shrimp using the same pot. The Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ™ is four appliances built into one. You have a slow cooker for an easy everyday recipe. You also have a stovetop for searing and sautéing; a steamer for veggies; and an oven for baking.

By the way, I topped it with bacon because it looked lonely without one, but please don’t feel obligated to eat it with bacon.
It tastes just as good without it. This slow-cooker creamed corn has become an instant favorite at our house! It’s hearty, creamy and delicious, perfect Thanksgiving side dish. Bring out the cooking system and rock this easy side dish.
