I try to serve a vegetarian meal or two a week, but I still like my meat. If ever I were to become a vegetarian the one thing I would truly miss is bacon. In my mind there is just nothing better in the meat world than crisp, yummy bacon. We do not eat it often, but we do enjoy it when we do. Here I have paired it with lima beans. Everyone at the table agreed that while limas would never become their favorite vegetable, if they had to eat them, bacon was a good bribe!
I thought they went really well with the duck.
Lima Beans with Bacon
3 slices of bacon
1 15 ounce can small green lima beans, undrained
salt and pepper to taste
Cut the bacon into 1 inch pieces. Saute until crisp. Do not drain. Add the lima beans. Bring to a boils and cook until most of the liquid cooks off but they are still moist. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
