Growing up I always loved my grandmother's green beans, they were delicious and my favorite vegetable. Here is the recipe that she always used.
Quart Jar of Green Beans (you can use a can of green beans in place of the fresh green beans)
1/2 small onion, minced
3-4 slices of bacon
Salt and Pepper to taste
In the bottom of a skillet fry bacon, and set aside to cool a little. In the bacon grease fry minced onions until translucent. Dump the onions and the bacon grease into a saucepan. Be sure to add the bacon grease this is where the flavor comes from Add in the green beans. Crumble the fried bacon up into small pieces and add into the mixture. Salt and Pepper to taste, be sure to be generous with the pepper! Bring the beans to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer for fifteen minutes.
With the summer weather heating up no one around here seems to be in the mood for heavy meals and it has me looking for light cooking ideas. This week is a mix of old and new recipes that hopefully will be the right balance of filling and light.
Here's what I have planned:
