  1. I would also love to know if this can be frozen. Someone please let us know. Plus I’m unable to find silver queen corn. Where did you guys find it? Thanks for any tips or suggestions!

    1. This dish does not freeze well. The cream cheese sauce texture changes after being frozen.
      I buy the sliver queen corn/White Corn at Publix and Walmart. If you can’t find it, regular yellow corn works just fine.

    1. I haven’t frozen this recipe so I can not say how it tastes reheated. If you try it, let us know how it works.

  2. Did you cook the bacon beforehand and then add to the slow cooker, or did you just sprinkle it in after the corn was done?
