Southern succotash makes a delicious side dish recipe. Made with bacon, beans, corn, garlic, spices, this succotash recipe is full of flavor, too.

Succotash is a dish that always makes a welcome appearance on our table. Full of the delicious traditional vegetables of lima beans, corn, butter beans, I step it up even further by adding bacon, onion, garlic, and hominy for a recipe my family thoroughly enjoys.

My succotash recipe definitely elevates a standard weeknight meal with tons of creamy vegetables that my whole family loves.

Succotash has always been a summertime favorite with vegetables fresh from the garden or farmer’s market, but now I also enjoy making it with frozen, canned, or dried beans so that I can enjoy this favorite dish year round.

 

 

Here’s my Southern Succotash recipe.

When I make succotash, I always make a large skillet full of it just so I can have plenty of leftovers for the rest of the week. It is absolutely scrumptious!
