I had corn souffle for the first time at dinner party about seven years ago. A couple of friends came across the recipe and wanted to try it out (Hi Ria! Hi C!). I was so glad that they did! I loved how it tasted like a cross between corn bread and corn pudding, so much so, that I would have been as happy as a clam if the souffle was all there was to eat that day. I was surprised at how easy it was to make when my friends shared the recipe. All that was needed were corn bread mix, canned corn, butter, and sour cream. It has since become a regular fixture at my dinner party table.

Slow Cooker Corn Souffle



The version I brought to you today has a few adaptions from the recipe I was given. The original recipe required baking. The only problem was there would never be enough oven space when I made the dish. Inevitably, there would be meat and other sides dishes that required baking as well. I have always wondered how the corn souffle would be if I made it in a slow cooker. Well, I finally tried it out, and as I had hoped, it turned out wonderfully. Now I can resort to my slow cooker method whenever oven space is tight. 

I also made two other minor changes to the original recipe. I lightened it up ever so slightly using 6 tablespoons of butter instead of the original 8...and I assure you, it does not affect the taste one bit. And for just a touch of color, I added chopped scallion. 

Slow Cooker Corn Souffle


The corn souffle can be served right out of the slow cooker. To serve it plated, as in these photos, I line the slow cooker with foil so that the whole ensemble could easily be lifted out. I also top the foil with a cutout bottom of an aluminum pie plate to provide support for the souffle once it is lifted out of the slow cooker. The corn souffle requires 3.5 to 4 hours to cook in my 2.5 quart slow cooker. If you are using a larger size slow cooker, your cooking time may need to be reduced.

Try this one out and let me know what you think. I am always glad to hear form you!

SLOW COOKER CORN SOUFFLE




INGREDIENTS:

1 pkg. (8.5 oz.) corn muffin mix
1 can (15.25 oz.) sweet corn cream style
1 can (15.25 oz.) whole kernel corn, drained
6 tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 cup light sour cream
1/3 cup chopped scallion (greens only)



INSTRUCTIONS:


Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Stir until well blended.

If serving out of the slow cooker, generously spray with cooking spray, then add corn souffle mixture. If you want to plate the souffle after cooking, line the bottom and sides of a 2.5 quart slow cooker with a large sheet of aluminum foil. Cut out the bottom of an aluminum pie plate slightly smaller than the inner circumference of the slow cooker. Place on top of foil. Generously spray the bottom and sides of the slow cooker with cooking spray. Add the corn souffle mixture. Cover and cook on low for 3.5 to 4 hours or until the center is no longer wet (a toothpick should come out with wet crumbs attached when inserted in the center of the souffle. You may need to adjust (reduce) cooking time if using a larger slow cooker. Turn off cooker. Allow souffle to rest about 20 minutes with the lid removed.




To serve plated, remove using the loose sides of the aluminum foil to lift out of the cooker. Place on serving dish. Carefully slide off the sheet of aluminum foil. Makes 6 servings.

  2. This looks delicious! And so easy! Love the idea of cooking this in a slow cooker, because you are right - you never have enough oven space during the holidays! I make a similar version in a cast iron skillet, but it requires oven space, so requires that I plan my baking time diligently if planning to serve for a large family gathering. I'm going to try your version for Easter! Stopping by from Freedom Fridays.
