Skillet Recipe From the Depression Era

Missouri woman offers a skillet recipe from the depression era for enjoying the last of the garden vegetables


| Good Old Days


This old skillet recipe is cheap and tastes good, and looks colorful. I still enjoy doing this skillet recipe with the last of garden vegetables. I use turkey bacon and Puritan oil instead of bacon and bacon grease. Sometimes I serve this dish with cornbread.

Use two-inch-tall iron skillet.

Fry bacon. Drain. Save for later.

Fry chopped onion in bacon grease until translucent.

Then add and continue to fry:

Chopped green Bell peppers
