14 oz of string beans
4 oz of beans
3 cups of cooked rice
1 onion
5.5 oz bacon
1 smoked sausage
2 oz of cheese curd
2 cloves of garlic


Clean and chop the string beans, onion, and garlic. Chop the bacon, and smoked sausage, and cook with oil in a pan for about 10 minutes. Add string beans, cooked beans of your choice, onion, and garlic. Reduce the heat, add salt and pepper, and let it simmer for at least 20 min. Cook the rice separately. When the rice is done, add to the pan, plus the cheese curd, mix with a spoon, turn off the heat and leave it on the stove with a lid for 3 minutes.

Cooking Tip

If you want to cook the rice in the same pot you can. Just take note of the water level so the pot does not dry up. Add a red wine to your table such as Merlot.
