Today’s recipe for Slow Cooker Monday is one of those why did I not try this before recipes.
A few weeks ago I had some corn that I got on sale that I needed to use up, but I had a busy day and knew I would not have much time around dinner to cook it. So, I decided to give it a try in the crock pot and I am so glad I did.
This was so easy and worked great making it ahead of time. At dinner time all I had to do was take it out of the crock pot and serve it. It was a simple and delicious side dish.
All I did for this was to shuck the corn, spread butter all over it, sprinkle some salt on it, wrap it in foil, and put it in the crock pot. I let it cook for a few hours and it was perfectly done at dinnertime.
I love this for busy days, but I also think it would work well for serving company or a crowd. You could easily get this ready early in the day. Then turn on the crock pot a few hours before dinner and the corn will be perfect at dinnertime.
Perfect for summer!
Slow Cooked Corn on the Cob
- corn on the cob, shucked and clean
- Spread butter on corn and sprinkle with salt.
- Wrap each cob in foil.
- Place in slow cooker and cook on low for 2 -3 hours. This will depend on the crock pot and how full you fill it. I cooked 8 ears in about 2 1/2 hours.
- Serve and enjoy!
