veggie twist

When I posted about the Ladies Christmas Dinner
 at our church, I talked about the delicious food.
 I promised to share the recipe for the amazing green beans.
 Well, I finally got my hands on it. So, here you go...

8 cans green beans (whole or cut), drained
1 1/2 lbs bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 stick butter
4 cloves garlic, minced

Place beans in 9x13 dish.
Melt butter over med heat, add brown sugar and soy sauce.
When smooth, add garlic and
cook for 1-2 minutes. Do not boil.
Pour over green beans, top with bacon.
Bake for 30 min at 350.

 Here's another one you might like...

Monday, my daughter tried a new recipe for cabbage
 and I tried it last night.
I don't really care for cooked cabbage, but this was tasty!
As the Hubby said, "It has a little kick!"

1 med head of cabbage, coarsely shredded
1/4 cup butter 
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
3 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp sugar

In large skillet, melt butter over med heat. 
Add cabbage, seasoned salt and onion.
Cover and cook for 15 min, stirring frequently.
Mix sugar and vinegar and add to cabbage.
Stir gently to blend.
Cook 5 more min.

So, there you have it...a twist on a couple of old stand-bys.
If you're like me, I'm always looking for new recipes.
They're not always winners, but these were!


  1. I was just thinking I needed to try to make the bakd green beans, but id not have the recipe from church. I can't wait to make a pared down version of them - they were so yummy!
    And I'll have to make this cabbage recipe too although I love cooked cabbage as it is. Miss Becky adds onion to hers so lately I have made mine like hers. It's delicious as well. Adding the sugar and vinegar is a new to me though so I will have to try it!

  2. They sound good. Thanks for sharing...

  3. Those dishes both sound good! As you know, I'm always in favour of trying something new...so thanks for sharing.

  4. looks and sounds good, never thought of baking green beans..

  5. Thank you, those both sound delicious!

  6. I need to proofread my comments a whole lot better than I have been doing.
    *baked, not "bakd"
    *did, not "id"
    *new to me, not "a new to me" (or "a new one on me")
    Well, proofreading or not, the recipes look great!

  7. That green bean recipe looks and sounds wonderful. I'm roasting a chicken tonight and will fix some of those green beans to go with. Yummy!

  8. I just copied your recipe and put it on a computerized "post-it note" -- my own scaled-down version of Pinterest! If it sits on my desktop for more than a week or two, I'll delete it. But I expect I'll be making it very soon!


Your comment is such a blessing and encouragement to me! Thank you for taking the time to leave one.
