Crab and Corn Chowder

I sort of made this one up based on some recipes I read and my baked potato soup recipe, but Andy LOVED it and said it was the best thing I had ever made out of crab!
By the way, the rest of us liked it, too!

2 cups frozen Southern-style hashbrown potatoes
1/2 cup frozen corn
1 cup real crab meat
3 slices of cooked and crumbled bacon

Cover with a bit of water and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes.

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sliced green onion
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp Old Bay, or to taste
4 cups milk

Melt butter in large pot. Saute onion for 1 minute. Add flour and Old Bay. Add milk all at once and whisk until smooth. Cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly.

Add crab and corn mixture to milk mixture. Stir well and heat through well.
