I had never tried succotash until some came with a meal I had ordered at Ruby Tuesday's. I reluctantly tried a bite, and actually liked it. I came here to try to find a similar recipe, and this one sounded the closest. I thought it tasted very similar, but the sauce for this recipe is thicker than what I had had at Ruby Tuesday's. I believe I like the thinner sauce, so next time I will use less flour in the roux. The bacon definitely adds a wonderful flavor to the succotash, so don't leave it out. Thanks for the great recipe!
