If you paid a visit to Silver Dollar City during your trip to Branson, I hope you had the chance to taste the amazing succotash that is sold in the park. If not … you seriously need to go back and try it!
Cooked on huge cast-iron skillets, this delicious mixture of breaded okra, corn, summer squash, green onions, diced chicken and spices is one of Silver Dollar City’s biggest sellers, drawing visitors from all over. In fact, so many of these visitors wanted to know the recipe that the park’s Midwest Living Culinary & Craft School actually shared it during one of its classes back in 2010.
I’m a major foodie, so after my first time trying the delicious dish I found myself wishing I knew how to make it at home. After I discovered this recipe from Midwest Living, life got so much better! If you missed the class a few years back, I’m hoping this recipe will do the same for you. Let us know how your homemade succotash turns out!
Silver Dollar City also sells its own recipe books, so pick one up next time you’re at the park for more great recipes!
