I made this to take to an Easter Potluck at my Grandmothers. It turned out great....everyone had big helpings of it! Thanks for sharing this recipe....
I have not yet made this, but I plan to make it over the holidays. I have a question: does the bacon grease go in the pot? I plan to double the recipe for a potluck. Has anyone done this? How long does it take to heat if you double it? Kathleen
I brought these to a party and they went fast! Everyone enjoyed them. This recipe is a keeper!
I made this yesterday for a party and it was wonderful. I remember mom making this with dry lima beans and bacon across the top alot saucier so instead of the ketchup mentioned in the reviews, i added what i think Mom used , a large can of whole tomatoes and broke them apart. It was very saucy and got rave reviews oh i left out the green beans but making it again today since my hubby loved it at the party and didn't really want to share. Thanks for the recipe ! :)
Thanks for the recipe. I have a similar one (no green beans, only 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon vinegar & 1 teaspoon prepared mustard, add 1/2 lb ground beef and the 1/2 cup ketchup as in earlier review.) It is outstanding even for those who don't like lima beans.
Great recipe! We loved these beans. I did add 1/2 cup of ketchup because we like our beans tomatoey. Served them with fried potatoes for a real 'comfort food' meal. Thanks for the recipe!
