Crock Pot Creamed Corn & Ham Casserole Topped with Bacon & Breadcrumbs

Written by Emily Buys



Today’s recipe is going to be a new family favorite! This Crock Pot Creamed Corn & Ham Casserole (topped with Bacon and Breadcrumbs – that has to be mentioned!) was inspired by a Jalapeno Creamed Corn recipe that was spotted on the BlogHer website. However, we decided to turn it into the main course!

My mom took care of dinner tonight since I had boy scouts with my oldest. She changed this recipe up and turned it into a main dish, and it did not disappoint. A couple of bites into dinner, my oldest son said “this is really good!” Of course – it is topped with bacon, so why wouldn’t it be? I know that Crock Pot recipes (aka Slow Cooker) are a huge hit with you all, so I just had to share! I didn’t have my nice camera with me tonight so the pictures are less than perfect.

Although this recipe calls for jalapenos, don’t be fooled into thinking this is a spicy dish. I promise that if this dish was spicy, my dad would not have eaten it!

  4. ½ hour before you’re ready to serve, top with breadcrumb mixture and bacon crumbles (see below), cover and turn to low for that last ½ hour. Serve and enjoy the raves.

  6. Breadcrumbs:
