Succotash Burgers

Raven Higheagle


When I saw a recipe for Succotash Burgers in Taste of the South, I thought- That’s genius and why didn’t I think of that! One of my favorite southern, summertime sides in the form of a burger. Yum! altered the recipe just a little adding a little diced red bell pepper which is something I like in my succotash, plus I thought the burgers could use some specks of color. I also changed the mayonnaise, reducing the amount of hot sauce, eliminating the lemon juice (but not the zest), and adding fresh basil. The basil was a lovely addition and really helped perk the flavor up. Lima beans that perk!
