Jasper's Bourbon Creamed Corn

"I found this on the net, and although I'm not a big fan of bourbon, I tried this and it's really neat! I fixed a big Porterhouse steak, for hubby and me, and it really was great. You could pair it with just about anything. Be aware that this recipe contains alcohol, so you might want to leave that out, or sub. a little more whipping cream, or perhaps a broth of some sort."

  1. Good served with grilled steak or pork tenderloin. I usually add a few tablespoons cream cheese and reduce the cream to make a thicker sauce. Published in Bon Appetit, September 2004.


I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with Food.com since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
