peppered bacon green beans

Recipe by
Pensacola, FL

Peppered bacon is my favorite type of bacon. I love the smokey flavor with the spice of the peppercorns. This is a tried and true recipe. Always a hit, and easy to make. Frozen or canned green beans can be used. I have even used fresh before, just make sure you trim the ends before cooking. Enjoy.
