"This recipe comes from Hamburg, Germany where it's called 'Bohnen und Birnen mit Speck.' It's a delicious variation of a traditional dish."

  1. Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until partially cooked but not brown, 5 to 6 minutes; drain on paper towels.

  3. Remove from the pan to a serving dish with a slotted spoon, draining excess water. Season with salt and pepper to serve.
