- 6 slices bacon

In a large skillet cook bacon over medium heat until golden brown and crispy. Remove the bacon from the pan and transfer to a paper towel lined plate. When the bacon has cooled chop it into bite size pieces.
Reserve 2 tablespoons of bacon grease in the pan and add in onions. Saute over medium high heat until golden brown and tender, 4 minutes.
Add in flour and continue to cook stirring continuously for one minute.
Slowly whisk in milk and bring to a simmer stirring continuously. When sauce comes to a simmer take off of the heat.
Stir in parmesan cheese.
Return the pan back to the stove and heat over medium heat. Stir in corn and cook until warmed through 2-3 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately with crumbled bacon and chives for serving!
