A Cookbook I Don't Have- Creole Style Green Beans

While going through my box of old clipping I came across this ad. It was on the back of a page of recipes. It is a large ad from the old style ladies magazines. I thought gee I don't have that one. A little further down the box I found a Good Food Magazine from 10/1973. Flipping through it I found the ad below:

Another ad for the same cookbook. I have never seen this book. I have a small hardback Del Monte tomato product book and a Del Monte canned fruit and vegetable booklet but alas not this ring bound book. I will have to keep and eye out for it. Here is the recipe from the second ad:

Creole Style Green Beans

"A tangy tomato sauce and bacon- and green beans go Creole. This dish teams well with pan fried chicken or fish steaks."

6 slices bacon, diced

3/4 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

2 tablespoons flour

2 tablespoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/8 teaspoon dry mustard

1 can (16-oz.) Del Monte Peeled Tomatoes

1 can (16-oz.) Del Monte Blue Lake Cut Green Beans, drained

Cook bacon until crisp; remove from skillet. Add onion and green pepper to 3 tablespoons bacon drippings; cook until tender. Blend in flour, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and mustard. Add tomatoes. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Add beans, Heat. Top with bacon. 6 to 8 servings.

I have only seen this book once. Unfortunately it was in very poor condition, moldy and smelly, so I didn't bring it home.
