    STARTERWIFE's Note:

    An old southern recipe from Mississippi for green beans and potatoes. You can delete the bacon or ham hock and they still taste good. Green beans adds a special taste to potatoes and I love it.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    CUPS

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In pot cover green beans with water and boil till tender with potatoes and bacon (or ham hock); drain.
    2. 2
      Add your favorite seasoning (I like butter, salt, and pepper).
    3. 3
      Remember ham hocks take a little longer than green beans, so if you use a ham hock, boil it first till tender then add the rest and cook. I personally never use ham hock due to fat content--I usually just use the bacon strips. I only listed it here as it was in the old south recipe.

      OMGsh ... this was SO good. My hubby is a mid-westerner and always talks about beans and potatoes. I saw some recipes that had ham and/or sausage, so I threw in a cut up Smoked Sausage and 1/2 water, 1/2 chicken broth. I didn't think I'd really like it (I consider myself a bit of a gourmet!), but it was amazing. Something about cooking the beans and potatoes together. Also -- I added about 2 T. of butter at the end, made a great 'broth' to dip the potatoes in. Thanks for posting this.

      Just like mom used to make, and like I have repeatedly made it for decades. Thanks for sharing with the world.

      I used a ham hock and it turned out so delicious that the 2 of us ate just about all of it!
