Yield: 8 servings | prep time: 15 minutes | cook time: 25 minutes | total time: 40 minutes



Ingredients:

  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 cups half and half
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 (16-ounce) bags frozen yellow corn, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

Directions:

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Reserve 1 tablespoon excess fat; transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.
  2. Melt butter in the skillet. Add garlic and shallot, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  3. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in half and half until slightly thickened, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in sugar; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Stir in corn; reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until thickened, about 8-10 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately, sprinkled with bacon and garnished with chives, if desired.
