Make

  1. In a saucepan, combine lima beans, water, and butter (portion for succotash). Cover and cook over medium-high heat until lima beans are tender (~10 minutes for fresh and ~5 minutes for frozen). Remove the cover and continue cooking until excess water has cooked off. Add onions and corn and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until corn is tender, ~3 minutes. Add lemon juice. Season with some salt and pepper. Set aside, covered.
  2. Place a skillet over high heat. Add herb butter and, once melted, add tomatoes. Saute until tomatoes begin to blacken in spots, ~4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add eggs and gently fold into filling. Cook, stirring frequently, until eggs are cooked through but still tender, ~5 minutes. Season with some salt and pepper.
  3. Serve eggs with succotash on the side.

Very fast and easy. Made it with a little extra chicken and sauce. And made roasted green beans instead of the succotash because we love them. Great flavors!

The flavor of this was good overall, but - here’s a thing I never thought I’d say! - I think I’d prefer a less buttery sauce.

Pretty good. I had to add a lot of salt to the succotash before I liked it.
