Slow Cooker Corn on the Cob is an easy and delicious vegetable side dish recipe. You can make this buttery corn so easily, it cooks while you do other things. Crockpot corn on the cob is a great way to cook up flavorful corn.
I like lots of butter on my corn. You can add as much as you like. I also like to cook it in milk.
Slow Cooker Corn on the Cob
There is nothing like a juicy, delicious bite of freshly cooked hot corn on the cob with butter and salt on it. A summertime treat!
When you are busy, or cooking other recipes, making your corn on the cob in the crockpot is so convenient!
Not to mention you can avoid the big pot of boiling water which is not too fun on a hot day!
Can I Use Frozen Corn on the Cob?
Yes you can. This is a great option for the times when fresh corn is not in season.
Frozen corn on the cob is a little softer when it is finished cooking, but still delicious.
Flavoring Corn on the Cob
You can get creative with seasonings to flavor your corn on the cob after it is cooked. A few that I like are:
• Tajin (a lime chile pepper flavored spice blend).
• Chile powder
• Cojita cheese
• Parmesan cheese
• Hot sauce
• Make up a Compound Butter with herbs and spices
Slow Cooker Corn on the Cob Notes
• I use a 4-quart or 6-quart slow cooker to cook my corn on the cob. You can use a larger or smaller slow cooker depending on how many ears of corn you are planning to cook.
• Try adding some milk and honey for a sweet version.
