Garlic & Herb Creamed Corn made with Alouette cheese and garden fresh corn on the cob. Growing up in the northeast, creamed corn wasn’t particularly something I ate a lot of. Especially since I’m not very fond of canned vegetables. I’m either a fresh or frozen vegetable kind of girl and the only time I’ve seen creamed corn was when it was in a can. However, when faced with quite a bit of leftover corn on the cob recently I wanted to try to make something else with it besides creating a new salad. I decided I would introduce my family to creamed corn, but true to form, I also had to add my own little twist.
Thanks to also having some Alouette Garlic & Herb Spreadable Cheese in the refrigerator as well, this fantastic Garlic & Herb Creamed Corn was born. This Garlic & Herb Creamed Corn was deliciously creamy and had just the right amount of garlic and herb flavor without being too overpowering. Using the fresh corn on the cob kernels gave this side dish that fresh crunch, but frozen corn kernels would work just as well during the off season and my family just loved this side dish. ~Enjoy!
