Ingredients

  • 32 oz. Frozen Corn Thawed
  • 4 Strips Bacon Cut Into Small Bits
  • 1/2 Medium Yellow Onion Finely Diced
  • 3 TBSP butter
  • 4 TBSP All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 2 Cups Heavy Cream
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 3/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese Freshly Grated
  • 1/2 tsp Freshly Cracked Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

Instructions

  • In a large pot, saute bacon bits over medium high heat. Spoon out bacon, leaving the grease in the pot, and place the cooked bits on a paper towel.
  • Saute onion in bacon grease for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add half of the bacon back in and add in butter.
  • Once the butter has melted whisk in flour and cook for 1 minute.
  • Slowly pour in milk, continually whisking to prevent lumps. Mixture should thicken slightly.
  • Once it's smooth, stir in the cream, cream cheese and Parmesan cheese.
  • When the cream cheese is melted and mixture is smooth stir in corn, salt and pepper.
  • Turn heat down to low to prevent scalding and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring often.
  • Garnish with remaining bacon bits and serve hot.
