Slow Cooker Creamed Corn
Dairy and the slow cooker don’t typically agree, but in our Slow Cooker Creamed Corn, the cream cheese and cornstarch produce a creamy, emulsified sauce. Since canned corn doesn’t have much natural sweetness, so instead of adding a bunch of sugar, we’ve developed a more savory cream corn. There’s still a slight sweetness from the sour cream, and a fresh, herbaceous lift from the thyme. Adding a can of cream-style corn makes the whole dish feel a little more homogenous, and unites the ingredients better than if you use straight corn kernels and cream. Use the chilled leftovers to make creamed corn fritters.
