Pressure Cooker Creamed Corn is a quick & easy side dish for all your holiday & dinner time menus. Perfect Instant Pot recipe of a classic for Thanksgiving.
I love corn. I think I have mentioned it here many times, but I do love it so much that I feel compelled to tell you again. It is on our menu more times than not. It goes with so many of our meals & is so incredibly versatile. One thing I really love is creamed corn. It has been on the top of my holiday menu list all my life. I grew up with it & it is something that I really look forward to each year. I have long made this recipe on the stovetop- which I can’t believe I have yet to share with you. There is also a slow-cooker method that we have done a time or two. But since I have a pressure cooker, I thought I would convert my recipe to this Pressure Cooker Creamed Corn & see how much easier I could make it. Check it out.

It’s really the thing you must have at the holiday dinner table. Like I said, I grew up on creamed corn. How about you? I think it was because my grandparents were from Boston. Is it an East Coast thing, I always had the idea it was because no one I grew up with in So Cal ever had creamed corn as part of their holiday menu. I always thought that was strange but maybe I’m mistaken. I’d love to hear from you. Is creamed corn something you grew up with?
Regardless, this pressure cooker creamed corn is so simple & easy to make. I might just have to start making it for dinner more often & not wait until only the holidays to enjoy it. I can tell you that it certainly makes me happy & that is a GOOD THING!
Pressure Cooker Creamed Corn
Since my trip to Iowa a couple weeks ago (thank you Iowa Corn) to learn everything I could ever learn about corn, farming & so many other things I definitely love corn more than ever. Which is pretty amazing because I was pretty much head over heels in love with it before the trip. But it was absolutely fascinating to learn how each type of corn is grown, harvested & used to sustain so many different things in our lives here. I was impressed by the innovations available now that help the farmers with the everyday struggles they have. It’s remarkable how corn fuels our bodies, our vehicles & is even being used to make things we use every day – like water bottles. It was an enlightening adventure. Be sure to check it out here in my recap.
I was fascinated to learn how the farmers use so many different types of corn not only for our consumption & of course fuel but how much goes into growing it. From the tracking of seeds, methods used to facilitate the long-term health of the crops, using Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s) to make our food healthier & more sustainable & so much more. It is really amazing to learn the science behind what we eat.
