Getting my family to eat any vegetable other than the most basic of vegetables can sometimes be a challenge. But I’ve found that they will eat almost anything if I put bacon on it.

Including lima beans.

Which technically, I’m sure are legumes.

Anyhow, in this recipe, the lima beans are disguised behind a confetti of bacon bits and sweet corn. It’s the perfect way to slide some additional nutrients past my family’s picky palates.

Here’s the recipe:

2 cups fresh corn
1 cup fresh or frozen lima beans
2 slices bacon
salt and pepper to taste

1. In a cast iron skillet, fry bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, crumble and set aside in a remote location labeled as “healthy” so your family will not eat it.
2. Discard excess bacon grease from pan. Without washing pan, add fresh corn and lima beans. Saute until veggies are warmed through.
3. Retrieve your “healthy” bacon from its remote hiding spot and sprinkle over top.
4. Serve to unsuspecting family in need of lima bean nutrients.
