This recipe brought back memories of my grandmother. Her generation you never threw anything out. There was always a jar of bacon grease by the stove. Thanks for such a wonderful recipe and memory.

Awesome recipe, I remember my grandmother making green beans for me similar to this. Only she used bacon instead of just bacon grease. Ohhh the calories we used to unknowingly consume!!!
