Church Mothers’ Meaty Green Beans Recipe

If you grew up in church, it’s virtually impossible to not have nostalgic memories of eating Granny’s meaty green beans after a Sunday service. As children, we would normally turn up our noses to vegetables, but Granny had a way of infusing so much meat into this classic side dish that no sensible child could resist.

Like Batman & Robin, these meaty veggies were a desirable sidekick to the fried chicken that our bellies craved after worship service

Try this recipe to achieve the classic taste of green beans that the old church mothers used to make.


Cooking Instructions

  • Begin with cooking the diced bacon to crisp and set aside.
  • Next place the smoked turkey legs into a large pot.
  • Pour the water into the pot, then turn the heat to high.
  • Let the turkey cook until it’s nice and tender, then remove it from the pot. Be sure to NOT drain the soup liquor from the pot. We will use it!
  • Shred the turkey meat. Make sure to remove all the bones, and skin.
  • Now toss the packet of soup mix, green beans, smoked turkey, bacon, onion, and garlic into the pot with the liquid.
  • Sprinkle in the remaining seasonings, and stir the ingredients.
  • Cook for about 10 minutes, then add in the potatoes.
  • Cook until everything is nice and tender another fifteen minutes on medium heat.
  • Serve.
