Rose Mary's German Style Green Beans

Rose Mary Mogan


This recipe is one of my family favorites, the sweet & sour tart flavors blended together with the smoky flavored bacon, I usually add additional bacon to this recipe. But I am giving you the recipe as it is written in my cookbook. It really is a comforting side dish. The green beans are just so tasty and delicious. This recipe too is on page 300. It is great anytime of the year, & will definately impress those holiday guests. Serve it & wait for the compliments to begin.It is a great alternative to the green Bean casserole, but you can serve both, if you have quite a few guest.
