    People can’t go wrong if you add bacon to a recipe! This looks great. It makes me wonder if I should add potatoes to my own green bean casserole dish. I’m thinking a Shepard’s Pie type covering over a cheesy green bean casserole.

    Thanks for the inspiration and for posting this on the Awesome Friday Link Party

    I love green beans and red potatoes, but I’ve never cooked them together. These look yummy! I’m going to have to try this recipe! Thanks for sharing at Together on Tuesdays 🙂
