Southern Butter Bean Recipe (Best Lima Beans)

Classic Southern Butter Beans – This tried-and-true Butter Beans with Bacon Recipe makes tender, flavorful lima beans that are perfect to serve as a side with your favorite southern dishes.

This classic Butter Beans with bacon recipe is made in the Southern-style with a simple vegetable trinity (that’s carrots, celery, and onion, y’all). These classic ingredients work together to make the beans perfectly silky with still a bit of bite, and so deeply flavorful.

The sweet earthiness from the beans, smoky bacon goodness, and luscious texture make this a fabulous side to compliment just about any savory main dish. I promise your dinner table will feel extra cozy and homey when you include a pot of homemade lima beans!
