DIRECTIONS FOR Southern Style Butter Beans Recipe PREPARATION:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) for the cornbread.

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine 2 boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix, 2 eggs, 2/3 cup of whole milk, 3 tablespoons of melted butter, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and a pinch of salt. Mix until just combined.

  2. Pour the cornbread batter into a greased baking dish or muffin tin. Bake in the preheated oven at 350°F for about 20-25 minutes or until the cornbread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Set aside.

  3. Optionally, prepare honey butter by mixing softened butter with honey to taste. Set aside for serving.

  4. Stir in the low-sodium Better Than Bouillon chicken base, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and some all-purpose (AP) seasoning.

  5. Add the smoked turkey or pork to the pot and cook for about 5-7 minutes, allowing it to brown and infuse flavors.

  7. Stir in the butter beans and continue to simmer for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the butter beans are tender.

  8. Taste the mixture and adjust the seasoning if needed with more AP seasoning, hot sauce, or Worcestershire sauce

  2. Accompany the dish with a slice of cornbread and a dollop of honey butter, if desired.
