Crockpot Cheesy Corn is corn that is covered in creamy, melted cheese cooked in a slow cooker. This will be your new favorite way to serve corn as a side dish! For some added protein in the dish, be sure to check out my Slow Cooker Corn Chicken Casserole.

I have to say, this Crockpot Cheesy Corn is right up there with my Cheesy Crockpot Scalloped Potatoes when it comes to cheesiness, flavor, and ease of putting it all together. Both are tasty side dishes that go with everything from Roasted Pork Loin to Pepper Crusted Beef Tenderloin. For another delicious corn dish made in a crockpot, try my Slow Cooker Jalapeno Popper Creamed Corn, too!

How to Make Crockpot Cheesy Corn

Once you have your ingredients and your slow cooker out and ready to go, you can put together this side dish to serve with any meal. Begin by adding the drained corn, shredded cheeses, milk, sugar, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to your slow cooker. Top these ingredients with the cubed butter and cream cheese. Cook on high for 2 hours (or low for about 4 hours).

After the cooking time, in a separate bowl, combine the corn starch and water to make a slurry, making sure you use cold water. Drizzle and stir that into the corn mixture, cooking for 20 more minutes. This will help thicken the mixture. Serve the cheesy corn warm.

How to Store Crockpot Cheesy Corn

To store leftovers of the cheesy corn, keep it in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. Heat it up in the microwave or on the stovetop. If you freeze the corn, it will last up to a month. Let it thaw in the refrigerator before warming it up. Don’t forget to label and date your freezer-safe container.

  1. Sounds amazing. I live alone so I’ll cut this way down in quantity to make a smaller amount. I’ll try it in my small crock pot.
