This has been a staple on my Thankgiving table since I delveoped it about 10 years ago. It is definitely more better than green bean casserole:

Sufferin’ Succotash

Ingredients:

· ¼ lb sliced bacon
· 1 small onion, chopped
· 1 tsp garlic, minced
· 16oz package frozen corn, thawed
· 10oz package frozen baby lima beans, thawed
· 1 large fresh Jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
· 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
· 2 Tbs apple cider vinegar
· ¼ cup chopped fresh basil
· Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions:

Cook the bacon in a large skillet over moderate heat until it is really crisp. Drain the bacon on paper towels, leaving the fat in the skillet.

Add the onion to the skillet and sauté it over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until it is softened. Add the garlic to the skillet and sauté the mixture 1 minute more. Stir in the corn, lima beans, jalapeno, and tomatoes and sauté them until the vegetables are tender. Stir in the vinegar and basil, and add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer the succotash to a serving bowl and crumble the bacon over the top.

We're doing a turkey at the farm. Probably butternut squash from the garden with some Brussels sprouts. We eat turkey quite often throughout the year, neither of us are big on desserts, so doubt I'll make a dessert. It is just the two of us anyway.

Bucky T, I am really glad you are back....however, my sciatica is off the Richter laughing at your barbs. Great comeback Dawg!

Kayelle, thanks for the nod on my mushrooms gratin.

We had a combo of thanksgiving and my birthday at TB's parents last weekend. Cousins were in town as well as some of his siblings so it was best to have it a week early. This weekend I am having the kids and their Mom over on Monday for a Thanksgiving dinner. I am hoping her parents will come too. It will be a traditional turkey dinner with a few minor exceptions - I will make my gluten free wild rice stuffing, the brussel sprouts will be shaved raw into a kale salad with dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds, and dessert will be a mixed fruit crisp with coconut milk ice cream (homemade).

Yup. That is the infamous recipe. Campbell's gave the world that recipe many years ago and now there are families that think it is a much of a part of the holiday dinner as the turkey.

"What? No green bean casserole with Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup and topped with French's Onion Rings? I am leaving and never coming back!"

I think the worse ones are made with canned beans. Frozen beans are next in line. Fresh green beans are so much better, but just adds more work to a busy day.

AND if you leave out the teaspoon of soy sauce, it's not fit to eat.
