Servings

  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1.5 cup bell pepper
  • 3 clove garlic
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 package corn
  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Spread corn on a large, rimmed baking sheet. Bake until most liquid has evaporated, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from oven. Increase temperature to broil. Coat a 2-quart broiler-safe baking dish with butter.

    Step 2

    Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium. Add shallot and ¼ teaspoon salt and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add bell peppers and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with flour and cook, stirring constantly, until flour smells nutty and turns golden brown, about 2 minutes. Add milk and bring to a boil over high. Immediately reduce heat to medium-high and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat. Add half of cheese and stir until melted and smooth, about 30 seconds. Stir in corn, several grinds of black pepper, and remaining 1¼ teaspoons salt.
