"My grandparentsdotcom Newsletter has done it again! -- Amazed me w/yet another recipe I would never have found on my own & one that turns something ordinary into something special. Here's what they had to say about this recipe that I suspect will become a family favorite: "Who knew that packaged frozen corn could become something so delectable? The standby side dish gets a face-lift thanks to your slow cooker & the addition of bacon, cheese & tomato." They gave credit for its origin to the BETTER HOMES & GARDEN NEW COOKBOOK, 16th Edition. Thank You BHG! Enjoy!"

Daily Inspiration

We really enjoyed this creamed corn and it worked perfectly in the crockpot. Loved the addition of the parmesan cheese. The only change I made was to omit the tomatoes -- DH's preference only as I would have enjoyed them. Will be making this dish again soon.
