Crock-Pot Corn Casserole with Bacon

How about Corn Casserole for your holiday table?

I guess they just go together: Thanksgiving, Pilgrims, Indians, and Corn Casserole.  Corn Casserole, sometimes called Corn Pudding, on our Thanksgiving table is a tradition.  It is one of those simple dishes that everyone looks forward to eating.

When you have to bake so many dishes in your oven during the holidays, do not forget about your crock-pot.  Corn Casserole works great in the crock-pot.  Once it gets done, just turn the crock-pot to warm.  It will keep the corn casserole hot, and you will not have to reheat it just before serving it.  Do not try to cook this corn on high.  I have tried it, and it will burn around the sides of the slow cooker.

What makes my corn casserole extra special?

It is the bacon!  Corn and bacon go perfect together.  It is an extra step to cook the bacon hard and then crumble it on the corn casserole while it is cooking, but it is so worth it.  The easiest way fix bacon is in the oven.  Stop by and check out my Oven Fried Bacon Post.

CROCK-POT CORN CASSEROLE RECIPEI adapted this recipe from Fix-It and Forget-It cookbook.  I always top this corn casserole with bacon.  It goes well together.

Crock-Pot Corn Casserole with Bacon

Crock-Pot Corn Casserole with Bacon


  • 2-14.75 ounce cans whole kernel corn with juice
  • 2-14.75 ounce cans cream style corn
  • 2 boxes of corn muffin mix (If you can find Marie Callender's Cornbread Mix, I highly recommend it) You need 3 cups of muffin mix.
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pound of bacon, cooked hard (see my oven fried bacon recipe)


  1. Combine all ingredients and add to a crock-pot that has been sprayed with a cooking spray.
  2. Top with the hard cooked and crumbled bacon.
  3. Cook for 3 hours on low or just until it thickens and sets in the middle.
  5. I used a 5 quart crock-pot.
  6. This recipe serves about 16 people. If I am not serving a lot of people I do half the recipe. I have also doubled it for a larger crowd of 30. You will have to adjust the cooking time. It will really depend on the size of your crock-pot.

    I just made this over last night for our church’s Thanksigiving Luncheon today. I modified the recipe to make 1.5 times the amount. It turned out a little runny but it tasted GREAT!!! Everyone enjoyed it very much.
    Thank you so much for the awesome recipe!

    How many servings does this recipe normally make ?

    We really love this corn casserole. I especially like making it in my crock-pot. It has been over a year since I doubled this recipe for the crock-pot. It seems like it took about 4 1/2 hours. Cook it on low, especially when you are doubling the recipe. The edges will cook much faster on high. I would allow extra time when making this to make sure it gets done. You could always put it on warm if it finishes cooking early.

    I am sorry I do not know exactly how long it took to cook this recipe when I doubles it.
    Blessings and thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment.

    How would you adjust the cooking time if you double the recipe?

    Brian, Thank you so much for visiting I am so glad everyone enjoyed the corn casserole. I think I will make it too for Christmas. Blessings, Diane Roark

    I made this recipe for a work potluck – it was a huge hit! Delicious and super-easy to prepare. I mixed it up last night, refrigerated it, and this morning cooked it on high for 3 hours, then low for two. (It seemed to have a bit too much liquid after the first 3 hours, but the extra two on low took care of that.) Everyone loved it, and my crock-pot is scraped clean!

    Yvette, This corn casserole is truly delicious. If you are eating it for lunch or dinner, I would just put it in the crock-pot 3 to 4 hours before serving it. It cooks in 3 hours on LOW. I have mixed the ingredients the night before and placed them in the crock-pot put the lid on it and place the entire crock-pot in the refrigerator. I do this for most everything I fix in the crock-pot. 3 to 4 hours before you serve it place the entire crock-pot in the base and turn it on. I hope this helps. Have a great Thanksgiving and thanks for stopping by Blessings, Diane Roark

    when you cook this — can it be the night before? and if so do you put it in the fridge overnight and just reheat in the morning or can you leave it out on the counter over night — THIS LOOKS FANTASTIC!
