Pressure Cooker Creamed Corn
The greatest thing about being a food blogger is trying out lots of new food on a regular basis. Embracing different cultures from around the world and trying their classic recipes in the Instant Pot is AMAZING.
It stops me from being stuck in a rut with my cooking and just cooking the same old foods all the time. They say the average household cooks the same five favourite meals all the time, well in the Milner household its more like 5 new recipes per week.
I first tried creamed corn while on holiday in the US. It was a side dish on a buffet at Disney World and it tasted so, so good, even though I declared at that buffet to Dominic, that there was nothing healthy to eat.
We we’re on holiday so who cares right?
Turns out that 3 weeks in Orlando resulted in a 5-pound weight loss due to the exercise around the parks. So maybe I should have enjoyed more creamed corn, right?
That was nearly 7 years ago and even now I love creamed corn, but I have a habit of forgetting about it and eating other sides.

How To Make Creamed Corn In The Pressure Cooker

- While the butter is melting, slice the corn off the cob until you have lots of fresh corn to cook with.
- Add your milk, water and soft cheese along with the corn to the melted butter.
- Cook the corn for 3 minutes on manual pressure and use quick pressure release.
- Add in extra cheese, because we can never eat enough cheese, along with extra seasonings and your pressure cooker creamed corn is done.
It is so quick and so easy to make pressure cooker creamed corn!
Can Pressure Cooker Creamed Corn Be Cooked WITHOUT Fresh Corn?
Absolutely. But like any times you substitute fresh for frozen or tinned, it is never going to taste as good. You can keep the exact same cooking time for creamed corn regardless of whether or not you use fresh corn, canned corn or frozen corn.
More Ways To Adapt Your Pressure Cooker Creamed Corn:
On a low-fat diet such as Slimming World or Weight Watchers? Then use quark instead of soft cheese, skimmed milk instead of whole milk and a low fat margarine instead of butter.
Allergic to dairy? Then substitute for lactose free cheese and replace butter and milk with coconut cream.
Want to meal prep your creamed corn for later? Then place it in the oven 10 minutes before serving to warm it up or keep it warm on low in the slow cooker. Though I also enjoy it served cold as an extra to a side salad.
Can you freeze the creamed corn? I would advise against it because of the amount of different dairy ingredients in this recipe.
