Preheat oven to 375°F.
Add the oil and garlic to a large skillet and cook on low for a couple of minutes until the garlic has softened but not browned. Whisk in the flour until it forms a paste and then slowly whisk in the milk. Add the flour mixture to the pan and cook on low heat for a couple of minutes until it thickens. Season with salt, black pepper, and paprika.
Turn off the heat and whisk in 1/2 cup of the cheese until it is incorporated. Add the corn, scallions, and bacon then stir to combine. Remove pan from the heat.
Pour the mixture into one or more baking dishes. I used 2 (12-ounce) size casserole dishes. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and bake for about 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the top is a light golden brown.
