Yep, just like that...............Fry bacon in large saucepan until crisp; drain thoroughly, reserving enough grease to sauté the onions. Sauté the onion until soft. Add the lima beans and water per package directions. Cook until slightly tender; add the corn and cook until beans are done. Thoroughly drain the water. Add the bacon bits and butter; combine until melted. Add the milk and stir thoroughly. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Personal Notes:
The Pennsylvania Dutch succotash that I know and love is always made with corn and lima beans. Sometimes they are just buttered, but most often a little milk or cream is added, as in this recipe. A memory I won,t do without......the smell of Sunday dinner coming out of the church basement!!!!! Woowee, you know what I mean? Somebody always made the best Mac/Cheese, fried yard bird, escalloped potatoes, meat-loaf, 3 bean salad, German Choc cake...........enough
