German Potato Salad

Ingredients List:
5 lbs. potatoes; boiled until fork tender; peeled and sliced bite sized
1 large green pepper; diced
1 large onion; diced
4 hard boiled eggs; sliced
1 lb. bacon fried, drained (reserve the drippings); crumbled
1 small jar of pimentos
2 c. apple cider vinegar
2 c. sugar
2 Tbls. corn starch
salt/pepper to taste

Prepare all the vegetables and eggs as above, put into large mixing bowl; set aside.

Make the salad dressing by taking about 3 large spoon fulls of the bacon drippings and placing in a skillet. Add 2 c. apple cider vinegar, 2 c. of sugar and the corn startch into skillet and heat over high heat until boiling and thickening occurs. I use a whisk to incorporate the corn startch into the liquids.

STEP FOUR: Pour boiling, thickened prepared dressing over the vegetables, adding the pimentos after you add the dressing

MIX WELL; serve hot! Refrigerate leftovers and heat to eat. This is DELICIOUS! You'll get rave reviews!

Vonna's Baked Beans

Move over Boston....these baked beans will make you a star of your church pitch in and gain you the love and admiration of your family! They ROCK!

Here's what you need:
4 cans of pork baked beans
1 onion minced
yellow mustard
brown sugar
6 pieces of bacon cut into small pieces

Dump the beans in a large mixing bowl. I never measure, but I would say: add 1 c. ketchup and 1/2 cup of mustard, 3/4 c. brown sugar and the onion. Mix together.

Pour into a 9 x 13 baking dish. Evenly sprinkle the bacon pieces over the top.

Bake at 350 until the top is carmelized and bubbling.

DIG IN! But don't forget to take some Bean-o ;o)
