Green beans and new potatoes are much preferred in our family than the traditional green bean casserole. I think it’s because we don’t care for the canned soups.
Wash and snap your fresh grean beans or use a large bag of frozen green beans. Wash a small bag of new potatoes, either golds or reds. In a large saucepan, saute one chopped onion and 2 mashed cloves of garlic in 1/4 cup of bacon drippings (grease). Stir till golden brown. Add the washed and prepared vegetables to the drippings, cover with water and cook till fork tender. Drain off the excess liquid. This can be stored in the refridgerator for days and warmed up in the microwave right before serving. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
