Blackened Green Beans

I couldn’t find my mamaw’s recipe but I think this one comes pretty dang close!  I hope you enjoy because I just learned that my kids LOVED it so it is an official family favorite.  These Thursday recipes are inspired by the “recipe roundup” over at Dinner Tonight from the Martha Stewart website!


  • 2 pounds bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 2 cans black eyed peas


Heat a large pot over medium-high heat.  Add bacon, onion and garlic, and cook until browned.  Gradually stir in the green beans, stirring to coat with bacon grease.  Add black eyed peas. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 5-6 hours, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
