Creamy Corn Casserole Recipe

When it comes to food, our family doesn’t always follow tradition. John loves French onion soup in the summer, and I adore pumpkin cream cheese bread all year long!

It shouldn’t be surprising that we’ll also eat Thanksgiving and Christmas dishes in June and July! That’s why I decided to re-invent our corn casserole recipe and make a slow cooker version.

Making crock pot corn casserole requires no oven time which keeps your house nice and cool during the hot summer months. This recipe is great as a holiday recipe, too, and perfect if you need to free up oven space.

Tips

  • Bring the ingredients to room temperature. The cream cheese, sour cream, and eggs mix so much better if they’re room temperature.
  • Use a different cheese. We use a triple cheddar blend for this cream cheese corn casserole, but you can use any flavor of cheese you’d like. Monterey jack and pepper jack cheese are good options.
  • Make it spicy. Swap the green chiles for a tablespoon or two of diced jalapeños, add some red pepper flakes, or a dash of cayenne pepper or chili powder.
  • Adjust the time. Every slow cooker cooks a little differently, so adjust the time as needed.

Storage Options

Refrigerator: Store leftover corn casserole in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days.

Reheating: Reheat in the microwave at half power or in the oven covered by aluminum foil at 350°F until warmed through.
