This Slow Cooker Ham and Cheese Corn is a great side dish and your guests will be asking for the recipe.
This Slow Cooker Ham and Cheese corn is like the corn you’d find in a barbecue restaurant. This isn’t your average creamed corn, it must richer. It has a sauce similar to mac and cheese. We loved it with grilled steaks! My husband said this would be great for a potluck, it’s something totally different from the usual sides.
The recipe starts with bagged frozen corn, then I add browned ham, pepper, Velveeta cheese and cream cheese. Not very many ingredients, but so much flavor. I wasn’t sure if there would be enough liquid in this recipe, after the corn thawed it added the right amount of liquid to keep the dish from being to thick. I loved the ham in this dish, but cooked bacon would be just as good.
Here is my YouTube video about how to make this Slow Cooker Ham and Cheese Corn. You can follow me on YouTube, here.
This corn has a rich and creamy sauce that is similar to mac and cheese. Great side dish for anything barbecued. Enjoy!
