Sheet Pan Succotash

Let me guess, you are asking yourself what in the world is Succotash? Well besides delicious, it is a dish  traditionally made with sweet corn and lima beans or another shelled type of bean.  So for this recipe I added sweet corn and swapped out the lima beans for shelled edamame.  Succotash can also be accompanied by sweet peppers and other veggies.

Sheet Pan Succotash is a great alternative when you need to make a side with any meal.  It goes so well with chicken, pork chops, and any type of BBQ.  It takes the boring vegetable sides or even salad up a notch and is fast and easy to make.  I love adding fun side dishes to basic meals or just to mix things up a bit to break up the routine.  Succotash has know limits, you can add whatever type of vegetables you like.  I love adding bacon to mine, it adds such a great flavor especially if you are serving it along side BBQ.

Most Succotash is made on the stove top, but I like the sheet pan option.  The vegetables come out tender, but not too soft and I omit the butter which makes it healthier without sacrificing the flavor.  A simple dollop of vinegar over the top of the succotash after it is baked is all it needs to taste fantastic.  So if you are looking for a little flavor of the South in your next meal, this Sheet Pan Succotash is calling your name.

Tips for making the best Succotash:

  • You can use any shelled bean you want, but I like edamame.  It adds just a hint of sweetness to the vegetables.
  • I recommend using fresh dill, it really gives the succotash a great flavor.
  • If you want to add melted butter instead of safflower oil, to make the succotash a bit creamier that is an option too.
  • If you don’t use safflower oil, olive oil can be used in its place.
  • Succotash is great served along side baked chicken or BBQ ribs, pot roast, or mixed in a salad.
