I found this in an impulsively bought Betty Crocker magazine I saw at the grocery store check stand around Thanksgiving. I tried it over Christmas with my sister and it was fantastic. I tried it again replacing the bacon with 1/2 cup purple onion finely diced (to be more vegetarian friendly) and it was STILL amazing. This is a great side dish for gatherings with more than 4 people.
Here's my modified vegetarian version:
1/2 c. purple onion, finely diced
4 1/2 c. frozen corn, thawed (essentially two bags)
1/2 c. red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. butter, melted
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 container (8 ox) of chive & onion cream cheese
Grease slow cooker (or use a liner), and add the mix of onion, corn, bell pepper, milk, melted butter, sugar, salt and pepper. Cover and cook on High for 2- 2 1/2 hours.
Stir in cream cheese, and cook on High an additional 10 minutes. Stir again, and serve. Can be kept on warm or Low heat for up to an hour.
