There’s nothing more comforting than this
I rely pretty heavily on my crockpot during the holiday season. Since my stove is usually full of roasts and casseroles, the crockpot is PERFECT for preparing your favorite holiday side dishes.
Our favorite holiday side is homemade creamed corn. If you’ve never had homemade creamed corn, you are missing out. So creamy, so decadent, and it is so easy to make!
For this holiday favorite, I always turn to Del Monte® Corn. Del Monte®fruits, vegetables & tomatoes are grown in the best soil, then packed at the peaks of ripeness to lock in nutrients.
The majority are canned the same day they are picked to lock in nutrients and flavor. And did you know that nearly 90% of Del Monte® fruits and vegetables are grown in the United States, in the best growing regions for a consistently quality product?
I feel confident that whenI have Del Monte® products in my pantry, I have garden quality veggies at my fingertips. This is a MUST for all the holiday entertaining I will be doing this season.

Crockpot Creamed Corn
3 (15.25 oz) cans of Del Monte®Whole Kernel Gold and White Corn, drained
8 oz cream cheese, cubed
1 cup milk
1/3 cup of butter, cut in to TB pieces
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1. First place drained corn into a 4-5 quart crockpot.
2. Add in milk, pepper, sugar and stir until well combined. Finally, top with butter tabs and cubed cream cheese. ( do not stir. you will stir at the end of the cooking process)
3. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours. 15 minutes before you are ready to serve, uncover and stir until cream cheese and butter are well combined with the corn. Recover and cook for 15 more minutes.
I hope you enjoy our holiday favorite and the garden fresh taste from Del Monte!
