Serves 12
  • 4 slices bacon, finely chopped
  • 6 Tbsp butter, cubed
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 4 oz cream cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 3 lb fresh or frozen corn kernels
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 375°.

In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, add bacon and cook until browned, about 8 minutes. Add butter and garlic, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Whisk in milk, increase heat to medium-high, bring to a boil and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Add cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar, and paprika and cook until smooth.

Remove from heat, add corn, season with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Transfer mixture to a 9”x 13” baking dish and bake until top is golden brown and bubbling, about 40 minutes.
