An old southern recipe from Mississippi for green beans and potatoes. You can delete the bacon or ham hock and they still taste good.
A great recipe that goes well with any meal!!!
Something about cooking the beans and potatoes together. Green beans adds a special taste to potatoes and I love it.

Old South Green Beans and Potatoes
2 lbs fresh green beans
2 slices bacon or 1 ham hock
3 medium potatoes
salt and pepper
In pot cover green beans with water and boil till tender with potatoes and bacon (or ham hock); drain.
Add your favorite seasoning (I like butter, salt, and pepper).
Remember ham hocks take a little longer than green beans, so if you use a ham hock, boil it first till tender then add the rest and cook.
