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.

How to Make It

Stir together sweet corn, cream-style corn, cream cheese, Parmesan, butter, cornstarch, salt, pepper, and, if desired, thyme in a 4-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW until hot and slightly thickened, at least 2 hours or up to 3 hours. Uncover and stir in sour cream until blended and smooth. Serve sprinkled with bacon.
