Southern Style Green Beans and New Potatoes
Diane Hopson Smith
This is such an easy dish and it's the way my mother cooked them. I especially loved it when she added new potatoes. The potatoes seem to take in the flavor of the beans, bacon and onions. All you need is a slice of hot cornbread...Mmmm good!
