To a slow cooker, add the corn, cream cheese cubes, butter slices, milk, sugar, salt, and pepper.
Set the slow cooker on high and cook for 2 hours. Stir after 1 hour.
When the timer goes off, remove the lid and stir. You can add the bacon crumbles and chives to the slow cooker or you can serve the creamed corn and then top it with the bacon crumbles and chives.
Can I add other seasonings?Yes! I've seen versions where people add garlic powder, onion powder, rosemary, and/or thyme. It all comes down to the flavors you want to taste.Can I cook this on the stovetop?Absolutely. The process is a bit different but will yield similar results. Add the corn, butter, sugar, and seasonings to a pot and cook until butter is melted (on medium-high heat). Then, turn the heat to medium and add the cream cheese and milk. Stir constantly until the sauce thickens (do not leave unattended). Once completely thickened, remove and add garnishes of choice.How to storePut your leftovers in an airtight container. They will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Or freeze for up to three months. When you're ready to reheat them, you can do so in a skillet over medium heat (stirring occasionally) or in the microwave until warmed through.
