Make these Southern Style Green Beans with bacon and seasonings and feel like you traveled back to grandma’s house. This is an old-fashioned green bean recipe that we grew up eating.
A few weeks ago, the hubby and I were traveling thru Gail, Texas and found a quaint place to have lunch.
It wasn’t hard to choose where to eat, there are only two business’ in the whole County (Borden County, Texas) and we were lucky enough to pick the one cafe with the best personality, I guess the odds were like 50/50. HA!
Anyway, everyone inside was local people and they all chimed in with suggestions as to what we should order. Seriously they did!
Since chicken fried steak was one of their favorites, the hubby decided to try it and it was served with fresh Southern Green Beans.
You know those country style green beans, like the ones we grew up with, cooked with bacon grease and loaded with bacon and some amazing flavors! The ones like your mama or grandmama made and they were delicious.
After that fun experience, we both craved more of those green beans, so it became a challenge to recreate that pot of green beans!
And we did it! These old fashioned Green Beans are loaded with flavors and bring back some great memories of our childhood and hopefully, your’s also.
