  • 1/2 pound maple-honey ham, diced (we tested with Boar's Head)
  • 1 cup finely diced onion

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup chicken broth


  1. Butter a 2-quart shallow baking dish, and set aside.
  2. Stir together lima beans and remaining ingredients in a large bowl; spoon into prepared dish.
  3. Bake, covered, at 375° for 30 minutes. Uncover; stir and bake 30 more minutes or until bubbly and browned. Serve with a slotted spoon, if desired. Beans will thicken as they begin to cool.
