Food For Friday - Week 23 - Crock Pot Corn on the Cob



Crock Pot Corn On the Cob

Last week while scanning many food blogs I found this recipe.  Wish I could say where and give them the credit but that's a problem with me....I sometimes can never get back to where I found a great recipe.  I read this one....which is easy...and mimicked it from memory.  It is a great way to make corn for a crowd....no standing over boiling water in fact no boiling water at all!!!  I had been reading about Cooler Corn but that involves boiling water again!!!  So whoever gave me this great idea I thank you......and am passing it on because it is a great way to make corn on the cob for a crowd.  I made it for my Patio Party and it was a great hit as well as a conversation piece.

Crock Pot Corn on the Cob

Ingredients:
10 ears of corn (yes they all fit in my crock pot)
Aluminum Foil ( I like Reynolds Wrappers which I get at the Dollar Tree.  They are perfect in size for so many things...this being one of them)
1/2 cup of butter (1 stick) melted
Seasoning---- I had a can of Crate and Barrel Spicy Parmesan Seasoning for corn which I used.  You can be creative at this step.....if you like spice use 1 tsp of cajun seasoning or 1 tsp garlic powder mixed with Italian seasoning.  Emeril's Essence would be great....Again use what you LIKE!!!

Directions:

1.  Shuck and silk the corn.  I cut 4 of my ears in half.  I wanted to give the option of a whole or half ear to my guests.
2. Melt the butter in the microwave and add 1 TBSP of the seasoning of your choice.

3.  Lay the corn on the foil and brush the corn liberally with the butter/spice mixture.



Whole Ear







Half of an ear ready to be sealed in the foil.
4.  Seal the ears of corn in the foil and place in slow cooker.
5.  Cook on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours.

The corn comes out of the packet tender, moist and hot.  I put my crockpot on the buffet table so everyone could help themselves.  No boiling water accidents....no boiling water!!!

Hope you add this to your summer cookout menu!!  It really beats ...you guessed it....boiling water!!

Happy Trails....until we eat again!!

  1. Who da thunk! Great for a crowd or pot luck. I always have a hard time figuring out what to take for a lunch at another church after our chapel since it will sit in the car for a few hours! This might work! Thanks for sharing. I am like you about not knowing where I found something. I have that problem with Pinterest. Sometimes I get frustrated because you can't seem to find where something originated. Oh well. You did a great job with your post the original person should be proud! LOL. Have a great weekend. You made me hungry for corn!
    Blessings,
