Copycat Cracker Barrel Baby Limas

One of my favorite things about taking road trips is you always pass a Cracker Barrel. Great breakfast food and home-style dinners. I normally order the ham and a side of baby limas with a cold root beer. I make this at home when I cook pork roast.

Cracker Barrel Baby Limas
1 Chicken Bouillon Cube
1 c. water
1 strip bacon
2 pinches red pepper flakes
1 clove garlic, peeled and lightly smashed
1 16oz. bag frozen baby limas

1. Bring water and bouillon to boil.
2. Add all ingredients. Cover pan and turn heat to simmer. Cook at least 25 minutes.
3. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve.



  1. not as good as Cracker Barrel… I don’t know if I had a huge clove of garlic or what, but it was WAY too strong. Will try again with maybe a half a clove.

  2. I love lima beans, but never had them at cracker barrel! I tried this recipe, but substituted ham stock in place of the chicken (just didn’t have chicken). I also forgot the bacon until they were almost done. I just fried the piece of bacon and crumbled it over the top… Delicious!!

  3. Also good with frozen corn, a little milk & butter if you like succotash.
