This recipe has been passed down in my family since the depression. It has many variations, since it was a favorite of hobos living near the railroads in the 1920s. Here is our version. Great in cold weather with cornbread.
Yield: 10 or more servings
- 1 package dried navy beans
- 1 large can of tomatoes, mashed with hands
- 1 pound fried bacon, crumbled, save grease
- 1 large onion, diced
- 2 bay leaves
