- Butter, 2 tablespoons
- Onion, 1/2 cup (chopped)
- Flour, 1 tablespoon
- Half-and-half, 2 1/2 cups
- Frozen corn, 2 (16 ounces) packages (thawed, rinsed, and well-drained)

Melt butter in a large skillet or saucepan. Over high heat, add onions and sauté until soft, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute, then add half-and-half gradually. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, whisking often until thickened.
