Southern Green Beans and Potatoes

 In this post we’re making Southern Green Beans and Potatoes. My mother used to make this dish as a main dish when I was younger, and she would serve it along with cornbread. During the holidays, or for Sunday dinner, I serve this as a side dish.

This recipe is super easy. It has your carbs, your vegetables, and your meat so you are good to go. I highly suggest serving this along with my buttermilk cornbread because the two pair nicely!

Give this recipe a try and tell me what you think.
