So I have a confession to make. This corn started out as a flop. It wasn’t horrific by any means. The problem was just lack of flavor.
Michael was the first to try it, so I asked how it tasted. He looked at me, wrinkled his nose and curled his lip up in a “ehh” look. So I dug in and made the exact same face. It wasn’t bad, but it just tasted like I had dumped a bag of frozen corn in the crock pot and made it up with no seasoning.
I liked the idea of using the greek yogurt, so I decided to do a little creative tweaking and see if I could salvage the recipe.
The result? I had Michael take the first taste again. THIS time his eyebrows shot up at the same time he said “MMMM!”…that is the test in this house. When that happens, I know for sure that I have hit a homerun in the taste department. I took a taste then and agreed completely!
Crock Pot Parmesan Cream Corn
Now I know this may seem like a strange flavor combination, but don’t knock it til you try it! My guess is that you will be as pleasantly surprised as I was.
Here’s the kicker of it all…it tasted like Parmesan to me even before I put the grated cheese in the crock pot. The mixture of the greek yogurt, cream cheese and butter already had the flavor of my beloved parm, but I added it in anyway because…well, I love Parmesan cheese and even though I would have never have guessed I would like it with corn, it is amazing!
