Mom would prepare home-grown green beans using this recipe, and boy did they ever taste good. The bacon provides rich flavor and the brown sugar a touch of sweetness. This is one irresistible side dish.

Slightly crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, these potatoes are a hit with the family. This side dish is one of my favorites because the soup mix glazes the potatoes so nicely and it's very simple to prepare.

These creamy tasty potatoes can be made the day before and stored in the refrigerator until you're ready to pop them in the oven (I often do that). The garlic powder and chives add zip, and the shredded cheese adds color. —Sharon Mensing, Greenfield, Iowa
I loved it when my mom made these classic beans...now I make them for my family. They have great old-fashioned flavor and are a real crowd-pleaser. I like to make them for potlucks, picnics or as part of a summertime dinner.
I've collected a large variety of recipes using our farm's crop of potatoes. This is a favorite. It has a wonderful pastry crust and is chock-full of sliced potatoes with onion, parsley and seasoning.—Patricia Wells, Riverhead, New York
This recipe originated from my sister-in-law, but I changed it around a bit to suit the tastes of my family. I chop and freeze garden peppers in individual packets so they're ready any time I want them.—Marcia Salisbury, Waukesha, Wisconsin
