When I think of creamed corn from a can, I think mush, I liked it but it was still mush. Every recipe I have seen on the internet is corn in a cream sauce, and this recipe was highly recommended by the reviews alone, so I am going to list it here. There is one shortcut for a money saver as well. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

  1. Put all the ingredients in your slow cooker and stir, cover and set to Low setting for 4 hours. Stir occasionally to ensure the Cream cheese is fully melted and combined into the sauce. This will keep well on the Low setting or warm setting for about an hour. Serve as a side.
Recipe Notes

The Cream cheese will cost about 120 Baht/250 gram block. For 8 side servings, this is about 44 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Heavy Cream.

Instructions
  1. Place the potato chunks into your slow cooker, add the onion and garlic powder and pour in the chicken stock. Cook on Low setting for 6-7 hours or High setting for 3-4 hours. You want the potatoes to be just soft enough to mash.
  2. When the potatoes are cooked, right there in the slow cooker pot, mash the potatoes with a masher then stir in the butter, sour cream, parsley, cream cheese, and season with salt and pepper to your liking. Serve.
Recipe Notes

Minimal cost.

This is an interesting one and I am quite happy to list this and is a must try for me. This takes a few hours, but when you think about it, you can start this then go about getting the rest of meal, think a outdoor BBQ together, and you are not tying up a burner on the hob or space on the grill, the corn is seasoned and buttered, seems like a win win.

Instructions
  1. Lightly grease the slow cooker with butter, place potatoes pieces inside. season with salt and pepper to your liking. Add the water then dot the potatoes with 1/4 cup of the butter.
  2. Cover and cook on High setting for 4-5 hours. Potatoes will be ready when fork tender.
  3. When the potatoes are done, carefully drain the water from the pot, add the remaining butter and the cream cheese. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher (bottom of a large beer bottle works as well) until there are no lumps left, and all the butter and cream cheese is combined. Add milk to get the desired consistency. Season potatoes with more salt and pepper if desired. Serve and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

This makes a lot of potatoes for a side dish. Only pricey item would be the Cream cheese at about 120 Baht.

Instructions
  1. Toast the bread slices in the oven at 150 C. If you have a 4 slice toaster, you can use that. While the bread is toasting, chop up the onion, parsley, celery, and apple and put everything in a large bowl. Add the seasoning, and add melted butter. Stir well.
  2. When the bread is done, cut into 1/2 inch size-or-so cubes, add to the bowl and toss well to ensure the bread is evenly coated. Pour this into your slow cooker, pour in the chicken stock.
  3. Cover and cook on High setting for 2 hours.
  4. When finished, the bread will have browned a bit on the top and around the edges, and it will be hot throughout. It can stay on warm for probably another 2 hours before serving, if needed. Stir. If you'd like it a bit more moist, you can add a 1/4 cup more (or as much as you desire) of chicken stock.

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Add olive oil to a heavy bottom pan and set over medium-high heat. Add the bacon or chicken, onion, bell pepper, and garlic, then fry for about 3 minutes, mixing often until the onion begins to brown and the bacon renders its fat. Transfer to your slow cooker. NOTE: If using minced chicken, use standard sausage seasoning, form into meatballs and cook those.
  2. Add the black eyed peas, broth, tomatoes, oregano, Cajun seasoning, and black pepper. Cook on High setting for 5 hours or Low setting for 8 hours, until the black eyed peas are soft.
Recipe Notes

The beans will run about 65 Baht/kilo, the bacon about 170 Baht for a 250 gram package, chicken would be much less. For 8 servings this is about 85 cents per serving (or less using chicken), very easy for a side dish.

Shortcut: Cajun Seasoning Mix.

Instructions
  1. Melt butter in a saucepan on the stove. Add garlic. Add in flour and stir until blended. Let cook 1 minute.
  2. Pour in milk while whisking and continue to whisk until incorporated and no lumps remain. Add in chicken broth and seasonings. Stir over medium heat until thick and bubbly.
  3. Grease the inside of your slow cooker with some butter. Layer 1/3 of potatoes, 1/2 of onions, 1 cup cheese and 1 cup of sauce. Repeat layers ending with the remaining potatoes, sauce & cheese.
  4. Cook on high 5-6 hours or until potatoes are tender. Once done, potatoes can be kept on warm for up to 2 hours. To thicken up sauce (if required) turn off slow cooker for about 20 minutes before serving.
Recipe Notes

Potatoes cost about 35 Baht/kilo, making this a very reasonable side dish for up to 8-12 servings.

Now this is listed as a side dish, but if you add a couple of diced boiled chicken breasts or diced ham to each layer, and pair it with a green vegetable as a side dish, you can turn this into a inexpensive meal.
