Make a place at the breakfast table for congee – a creamy rice porridge. This forbidden rice (black rice) version is a unique way to start the day, loaded with corn, salty pancetta, shredded Gruyere and an unexpected seasoning – ground nutmeg. It’s a welcome balance of nutty, sweet and oh-so-savory, drizzled with a tangy balsamic glaze to finish.

Season congee with nutmeg, sea salt and pepper; cook 3 to 4 minutes longer. Stir in 1/4 cup of the cheese until melted.
  • 2 Cook pancetta in large skillet on medium heat until crisp. Add corn; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes. Drain mixture on paper towel-lined plate. Set aside.
  • 3 To serve, spoon congee into serving bowls. Top each with corn and pancetta mixture, remaining 1/4 cup cheese and green onions. Drizzle with balsamic glaze.
