212. Creamy Parmesan Corn


I love this side dish.

I have always been a huge fan of corn and this dish is by far my favorite corn dish.  I used to make this without bacon, but then we all know that bacon makes everything taste that much better.

I like this recipe best cooked in a slow cooker for a few hours verses heating it up on the stove top.

In the slow cooker it gets nice and creamy and the corn has a chance to drink in the flavors of the parmesan and cream cheese.

Leftovers, if there are any, are the best.  The parmesan really shines the next day along with the smokiness of the bacon.  I make it a priority to have left overs of this dish.

I have only used canned corn to prepare it, so if you try to use fresh corn please let me know. I would love to hear how that turns out too.

A simple side dish of corn turned into a gourmet treat for your family.

ENJOY!

Recipe:  Creamy Parmesan Corn

3 cans of corn, drained
1 (8oz.) package of cream cheese, soft
1/2 stick of butter, soft
1 cup of parmesan cheese, finely grated
1/2 pound of bacon, cooked crispy
Salt and Pepper to taste

In a slow cooker add the above ingredients.

Cook on high for 3 hours, stirring occasionally or on low for 6 hours.

Serve immediately.

    1. I believe that will be okay. It might make the dish a bit sweeter but you can off set that a bit by adding more parmesan cheese. Enjoy your outing, it sounds fun.

    1. BTW - Sharron, I am definitely Pinning this recipe! I think it would be a great side dish at Thanksgiving. The only thing I will do different is use turkey bacon. Since turkey bacon is a little more mild, I think using the crockpot method will be best to bring out the delicious smokey flavor.

    1. You can cook it on the cook top for less time but i like the way the corn taste and texture of the creamy sauce is after a longer cook time. If you make this
      with a less cook time please let me know how it turned out for you.
