Mmm, green beans! I really love them as a side dish, but sometimes I want to add all the ingredients into one, big, delicious mess. Yes, I did say mess and I think it’s a perfectly suitable word for describing a tasty meal!
Of course I enjoy a dish that is carefully finished to the smallest detail, but occasionally a mess is just so much better and easier. It doesn’t have to look perfect to taste perfect! Simple ingredients always give you the best results. Some potatoes, beans (feel free to use canned or fresh) and bacon or ham.
Of course you could add any of your favorite veggies – I often add onions and mushrooms because I like the way all the flavors blend together nicely. Adding more ingredients will help turning this into a full meal, and paired with fresh, crusty bread and a nice salad it will become a great weeknight dinner.
You may also want to consider making a double batch! In my opinion, the leftovers only get better in the fridge, and they make a scrumptious lunch the next day.
