Something a little different, but was very tasty.

Heaven! I doubled onions, butter, flour, and skipped the parsley. It was creamy and delicious! I cooked the bacon with a little brown sugar (which was wonderful) and it added a nice sweetness. Great recipe - try it!

this was great! even my husband liked it who hates corn except for my spicy corn. this tasted very similar to my spicy corn, but uses a roux and sour cream instead of cream cheese and the bacon is an awesome addition! the only change i made was adding some serrano peppers for heat. i made this up ahead of time and put it in a warm oven til everything else was ready. this is a real keeper, thanks kathy!
