Southern Living. This is so wonderful with fresh butterbeans and fresh off the vine tomatoes. I serve this with other fresh garden veggies and cornbread. Great summer supper.

    I got a bushel of fresh butter beans last summer that are frozen in my freezer. I am always looking for new ways to cook them, and this recipe is fantastic. My toddler devours them when I make this recipe. I don't change anything about the recipe and we love it! Thanks!

    This is excellent, better than I expected even. I left out the green pepper (I was out) & used two large, lucious tomatoes from MIL's garden. Otherwise followed exactly, using frozen butter beans. This was so flavorful, so southern. I topped each bowlful with a little more chopped, crisp bacon. Excellent, easy, perfect for a weeknight meal. Thank you!

    My hubby and I send you a huge thank-you for this recipe. I used frozen butter beans, no fresh ones to be found. Reminds me of a dish my grandmother used to make. I spooned it over homemade cornbread. Quite filling and homey tasting. Thanks Nurse Di.

    This was a nice change of pace from my usual butter beans. Went really well with the cornbread for an easy and great summer supper.
