This is traditional in my family and since this year I'm thankful I won't be spending any of the holidays with them I thought I'd share this with you.
4 cans green beans
2 cans dark red kidney beans
Half pound thick cut pepper bacon (find a package with as much tallow on it as you can)
open 4 cans of green beans, drain 2. Open 2 cans kidney beans do not drain
Dump into pot. Set heat to high and boil covered.
dice up bacon and fry. Once bacon is at desired crispiness dump bacon and grease into pot of beans. Boil uncovered until the resulting broth is thickened.
Cover and refrigerate over night. Before serving place on high heat until boiling. Serve hot.
Recipe has been in my family for a while but I'm the only one who makes it right. I won't tell anyone what I do differently than them because I want to feel special.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
