Creamed Corn Succotash with Sugar Snap Peas - 52 Grilling Time Secret Extras Side Dishes

Pin It Now!


Except, great name, so much fun to say but, excuse me, but I still HATE Lima Beans.  Dress 'em up and cal them edamame if you like, but I still channel my inner 6 year ols and refuse to eat my Lima Beans (even in that veggie salad with the great name).

So... Simple enough, for this recipe I added Sugar Snap Peas in place of the traditional Lima Beans and Viola (insert that popping sound when you slap your hand against your open mouth)... A Succotash everyone LOVES!

Once prepped, the dish comes together pretty fast, about 10 minutes.  I made this on my Weber Grill in a cast iron skillet for a side dish to a BBQ (RIBS!).  But works just as easy on the stove top.

OK... Here's what I did...

Creamed Corn Sugar Snap Peas Succotash

  • 6 ears Fresh Corn on the Cob (Can substitute 2 cans of Sweet Corn, drained)
  • 2 TBS Butter
  • 1 Medium Sweet Onion, Chopped
  • 1 Clove Garlic, Minced
  • 4 TBS Sugar
  • 1/2 Pound Sugar Snap Peas, ends trimmed
  • 2 Medium Plum Tomatoes, Chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Cream Cheese
  • Large pinch each, Salt and Pepper
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 Green Onions, White and Green Parts, sliced thin
Cooking Directions
  1. Slice the corn from the cob (be careful not to go too deep or you will get more of the bitter parts), Use the back of the knife to press and squeeze out the milk of the cob (If using canned corn, drain and rinse)
  2. Heat the butter in a large saute pan. Add the Onion, saute for about 5 minutes until the onion is soft. Add the garlic and saute for an additional minute. Add the corn and corn milk (Add 2 TBS Whole Milk (I use Half and Half) if using canned corn) and stir to combine.
  3. Add the Snap Peas, Sugar and Cream Cheese and cook until cheese has liquefied, stirring continuously for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes and stir one last time to combine.
  5. Transfer to serving dish and garnish with green onions and Parmesan Cheese.
  6. Serve Warm and ENJOY!
