"One of my favorite childhood side dishes, loved it when Mom prepared this one. This is one of my husbands favorite ways to have potatoes. Yukon Gold or any thin skinned potatoes may be substituted for the new potatoes. If using anything other than small sized potatoes, chop into quarters."

Made to accompany my Icelandic version of "Surf & Turf" & served to US dinner guests this evening w/my grilled marinated lamb tenderloin & by JostLori. This delicious recipe reminded me of picking fresh green beans in the garden w/my mom & then cooking them in a big pot w/lots of bacon (or ham), onions & potatoes. I was a happy camper to stuff myself w/them, an ear of buttered corn, a cucumber salad & a bowl of rhubarb -- All straight from the garden. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us & for the trip down memory lane. :-)
