Dixie Green Beans and Potatoes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Vicki in CT

Traditional southern method for cooking green beans. Great way to use leftover ham. Can substitute smoked ham hocks or bacon. Season with salt according to saltiness of meat.

I too took the liberty of cooking this in the crockpot because the day home that I planned suddenly disappeared and my plan to make this was jeopardized. I cooked it for 10 hours on low (I have an old crockpot). It was so very good and the flavors and seasonings were just right. We really enjoyed it and I'll be making this again following your directions. Thanks Vicki in CT!!
