Every year around the holidays we head out to a steakhouse dinner with neighbors.

Hyde Park Steakhouse 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.

While this side dish doesn’t really count as a “healthy vegetable” because it is drowned in a rich and creamy cheese sauce, it’s one recipe I can never turn down.

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 it’s perfect. This is not a sponsored post or ad. There is just no other substitution for Boursin cheese in this recipe.

How to make this creamed corn from scratch

This recipe uses fresh cut corn from the cob but in a pinch I find that frozen bagged supersweet corn works just as well. There is no pulverizing or “creaming” involved with this recipe. Just add salty pancetta and Boursin cheese.

You can usually find this specialty cheese in the deli near other favorite cheeses like Gouda, Gruyere and Asiago for about $5. It comes in two flavors and while either is fine, I prefer the original with garlic and fine herbs.

First fry the pancetta and set aside. Next saute the onions until soft. The cream, butter and Boursin cheese is added and simmered until melted and smooth. Finally, add the corn and pancetta and top with fresh ground pepper.

My recipe is simple and pairs well with any holiday meal, including roasted turkey, Honeybaked ham and beef tenderloin.
