Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
- 4 oz cream cheese I used Reduced-Fat
- 2 12 oz bags frozen whole kernel corn
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup milk or almond milk
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 3 oz ham cut into cubes
- 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, chopped into chunks
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp water
- 1/3 cup vegetable or chicken broth
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Turn the Instant Pot on the Saute function. Add the olive oil and cubed ham to the pot. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add the corn, 1 cup of cheddar, cream cheese, broth, seasonings, butter, milk, and whipping cream to the pot. Close the lid on the pot and seal. Stir to combine. Cook for 8 minutes on Manual High-Pressure Cooking.
Allow the steam to release naturally for 5 minutes instead of quick release.
Remove the lid.
Combine the water and flour in a small bowl to create a slurry. Pour the flour slurry into the pot and stir. The mixture should thicken.
Place 1/2 of the cheesy corn in a casserole dish. Place the cheddar cheese chunks throughout. Sprinkle 1/2 of the shredded cheddar throughout.
Top with the remaining cheesy corn. Sprinkle the remaining shredded cheese throughout.
Bake in the oven for 5-8 minutes until the cheese bubbles.
Cool before serving.
