This is a simple story - take something that is maybe less than yummy on it's own, such as a fresh, green bean. Take the best meat known to man - bacon and VOILA! You have a winning combination.
We visiting the Minneapolis Farmers Market on Sunday and scored about 5lbs of green beans for 3 bucks - can't pass that up! In the past I've made this dish, following Rachel Ray's recipe to the T, but this time, I didn't have any bacon thawed, so what's a girl to do?? She takes out her jar of reserved bacon fat and uses that as her cooking oil!
So the dish ended up sans bacon bits, but the bacon grease was so yummy that you didn't really miss it!
