Fresh Green Beans

This is as easy as it gets: I picked some fresh green beans from the garden, picked the ends and washed them.  Made a pouch of aluminum foil, put it 2 tablespoons of bacon grease, seasoned with sea salt, black pepper, some powdered onion, topped with 2 large pats of real butter, wrapped up tight and put on with the baked potatoes.  let it cook at about 375 for 35 minutes.  Great taste, still firm, but not crisp, better than a straight steam.  Fast and easy!  Would work with most any summer veggie….bacon grease is the bomb.

    Never done them with bacon grease. But love them grilled with butter. Hell who am I kidding. I love anything grilled with butter.

    I concur 100% my friend. Without question or doubt.

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    Haven't tried them in foil yet, but I absolutely love fresh green beans out of the garden!
    Just made some the other night! And how can you go wrong with bacon grease and butter??
