This gluten free Flemings Creamed Corn recipe uses corn, onions, jalepeños, and cheese and cooks up quickly on the stovetop for a delightfully spicy (but not too spicy) side dish.
This Fleming’s Steakhouse-inspired side dish: Flemings Creamed Corn recipe is bold and spicy and perfect alongside your favorite roasted or grilled meat.
Occasionally my husband and I will steel away for an evening dinner at Fleming’s Steakhouse and Wine Bar to celebrate a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary.
I love their small plates and especially their side dishes, one of which, is my ultimate favorite: Creamed Corn.
Now I’ve checked to see if Flemings still offers this side dish and sadly they don’t. That is why I decided to give this recipe a shot at home. I know my family loves the spiciness of jalapeños and rich cheesy sauce, but they also love, love, love corn.
Flemings Creamed Corn is a perfect side dish for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. Just double the recipe for larger crowds.
How to Make Flemings Creamed Corn Recipe
The recipe itself is quite simple: corn, onions, green chilis, jalapeños and cheese–plenty of cheese, please! The ingredient that makes the dish is corn meal. It acts not only as a thickener but it also gives this recipe a deeper corn flavor.
Make 2 Ways: On Stove or in Oven
You can finished up this dish on the stove or in the oven. For me, if I’ve got time, I’ll scoop the creamed corn into a gratin-like dish, add a touch more cheese on top and then I’ll pop it in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F. It only takes a couple of minutes for the cheese to melt and get slightly golden brown. That’s when it’s ready to take out of the oven.
Or, if I’m in a pinch for time and need my Flemings Creamed Corn fast, I’ll finish up with the stovetop version and serve it up nice and hot.
If you love corn as much as I do, check out this super recipe for Summer Succotash Salad. You can use either fresh or frozen corn and lots of fresh veggies. Want to spice it up a bit? Add some finely diced jalapeños. This corn-inspired salad is perfect as a side dish or an entrée, when paired with chopped chicken, beef or pork.
Recipe Variation: South-of-the-Border Flemings Creamed Corn
Some folks have asked can they could vary this recipe with other ingredients. The answer is: Yes!
Try this South-of-the-Border favorite recipe that uses the Flemings Creamed Corn as a base and then add black beans, along with a mix of Mexican cheese for a dreamy, creamy, cheesy side dish.
Start with the recipe as noted in recipe below. To this, add one cup of black beans that have been rinsed and drained. Mix well.
To this sprinkle on your favorite Mexican cheese mix. For me, I love to add lots of cheese, but you don’t have to. Use approximately 1-2 cups of cheese.
Then, bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for approximately 10-15 minutes or until it turns golden brown. Remove and serve.
Either way, this is a great corn dish that I hope your family will love as much as mine. Enjoy!
