Green Beans, New Potatoes With Bacon

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by charlie 5

This is such great comfort food, and the whole family eats it! Haven’t tried it, but might be good with some balsamic vinegar sprinkled on it. It’s yummo with my horseradish sauce recipe served on the side too. Might be nice to add a few tablespoons of creole seasoning for a change. Think I might try adding in 6 T brown sugar and 6 T apple cider vinegar for a German switch. Perhaps use a couple cups of diced ham. Cornbread makes a nice accompaniment. Be sure to remove any strings from the beans. I don't recall where I got this recipe, but my mother made something similar.

My mother makes something similar to this... Give it a splash of Red Wine Vinegar before serving... Trust me!

Directions

  1. Soak the green beans in cold salt water while sautéing the bacon. When the bacon is golden, add the onions and garlic and cook until transparent. Drain the beans and add them to the bacon and onions. Cover, lower the heat, and cook for 1 hour.
  2. While the beans are cooking, boil the potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain. Cut the potatoes into fourths. After the beans have cooked for 1 hour, add the potatoes, salt, and pepper.
