One of my favorite vegetables fresh out of the garden is green beans. When I was growing up, I remember a man that use to come through our neighborhood in a wagon pulled by a mule. He always had fresh vegetables and while I know my mother purchased other veggies I can still picture those baskets of green beans and new potatoes in my head.

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!

Enjoy!
