Fresh sweet corn kernels mixed with salty pancetta and dunked in a creamy Boursin cheese sauce. One bite and you'll think you've died and gone to heaven.
Every year around the holidays we head out to a steakhouse dinner with neighbors. Hyde Park serves up tender grilled steaks and the side dishes are ordered a la carte. There is always more than enough to pass around. We always select the Pancetta Creamed Corn when choosing our vegetables.
Ok I guess they don't really count as a "healthy vegetable" since they are drowned in a rich and creamy cheese sauce. But man are they delicious and GOURMET! And a little goes a long way.
Lucky for my readers I've recreated the recipe at home using fresh sweet corn on the cob (when it's in season) and fresh Boursin cheese. It's not something you want to eat every day but for a special occasion. And to be clear...this is not a sponsored post or ad. There is just no other substitution for Boursin cheese in this recipe.
My recipe is simple and pairs well with any holiday meal, including roasted turkey, honeybaked ham and beef tenderloin.
