Merry Christmas! Thanks for liking my recipe. I love bacon and so does everyone else here at Cat's house. Vitamin Bacon -- Cat and I like that.
Any kind of garlic salt or onion salt is just nasty. When I use canned beans, I get the no sodium ones. There's enough salt in the Montreal Steak seasoning to help with the flavor. Mom's on a low sodium diet and I've got to be careful about that.
I saw the posts about being a food snob, so I hope I'm not one with regard to the garlic and onion salt. I wonder why it's on the market too. What's it used for? I've seen recipes that have that in it but when I cook those recipes, I don't use that and I prefer real onion and minced garlic. It's always better to use the real stuff without the salt, because I think it tastes better. And it's better for Mom. Well, for all of us really.
And I don't mind saying, we're on food stamps because Mom is disabled and she can't work anymore. I try to get fresh beans when we can, but sometimes the canned beans are cheaper. I don't know if Cat told you this, but every week when she buys groceries, she gets a bunch of groceries for us, too. That really helps us out a lot. She's been helping me learn to cook good stuff on a budget and I'll be posting some of that.
