Potatoes, Beans & Bacon

Kay Depew

            This is a great dish for company.
    A friend of ours told Kay that her sister-in-law that always said shed bring a green bean casserole for Thanksgiving Dinner. But year after year shed just bring most of the ingredients and then make it up at the house or (more likely) someone else would put it together. Still, she thought she was hot stuff and bragged about the casserole she brought.

Enter, Kay  (Sis-in-law doesn't have a chance, now. . . .).
Kay told her about this dish and gave the recipe to her friend. Her family loved it and she decided to make it for Thanksgiving. When the s-i-l got there and said she needed help with her dish they said Oh, yours isnt made up? Well we have another one ready. So you dont have to make yours up. The whole family just loved this dish and it immediately became their Thanksgiving casserole. The best part is that the sister in law is ticked off because everyone just loves this dish and she had nothing to brag about.

             This is a GREAT dish for a pot luck, Thanksgiving or Christmas or just because you want a good dish.
