Succotash is a classic dish and I am one of it's most loyal fans, for sure. I usually like to serve it as it's supposed to be, in all it's simple glory, with just corn, Lima beans and a little salt and pepper. But, lately I've been taking a few little liberties with this old-fashioned dish by adding in some onion and crispy bacon bits. My small adaptations to this old standby were on the list for an upcoming fall post, until it seems life intervened and made the changes a bit more dramatic... and better.
As are so many of the recipes I post here, this sweet and spicy version of succotash was born out of a grocery list-based mistake. My family of very distracted shoppers continues to keep me on my toes in the kitchen. I love it, really. This homebody has to get fresh inspiration from somewhere, right?!
Keep up the good work, crazy little family.
