Succotash (no lima beans!)...A Family Favorite!

(Click on this picture to see how yummy!)
This is a side dish recipe that has been passed down to our family 5 generations or more...yummy Succotash!
My sweet Mother made this when I was growing up, as her Mother and so on.
It is still a "must" at our family gatherings! As you can see it would make a good little main dish because it has all the goodies in it to fill the tummy.
Now sharing the recipe with you if you would like to try it!

Gloria's Succotash
(Most times I double it!)
2 cans green beans - drained
2 cans of sweet corn - drained, except 1/2 juice of 1 can
1/2 to 1 stick of butter
1/2 medium onion - chopped (I always have frozen onions on hand)
1/2 lb. bacon - cut into pieces
pepper and garlic salt (or garlic powder) to taste
Brown bacon and onion until fully cooked.
Add green beans, corn, butter, salt, pepper & garlic salt to taste.
Cook for a few minutes until slightly caramelized. Yum!
I promise you will love THIS recipe! xox
