This is great! No lima beans in cans or frozen here in Australia, so I used frozen corn - otherwise made as written. Served with a large baked potato and sour cream, yum! Thanks for posting Lavender Lynn
I love beans, so I enjoyed this. I could not find canned lima beans though, so I used white beans. I also don't like bacon (strange, I know), so I left that out. Even without the bacon, the dish was well-flavored and savory. I doubled the serving portion and we had this as a main dish. [made & reviewed for PRMR]
Hot Dawg, This is GREAT. Lainey6605 I see you used this as a side dish. I grew up way back in the Caveman days using beans as THE sandwhich. I guess beans are MAN fruit but try one you'll love em. My congrats to the originator this concoction. Fantastic. Cap'n Jack
