I love the simplicity of this delicious, attractive side dish. The bacon fat gives the green beans and especially the almonds such a good flavor.  One could almost call this Green Beans Bacon Almondine!  It's amazing how tasty these were.  I kept eating them and eating them before they even got to the table!  That's usually a sign of a good recipe where I am concerned.  I'm such a nibbler!

1 lb green beans (0.45 kg)
2 tbsp bacon fat, divided (30 mL)
1/cup sliced almonds (60 mL)
Seasoning salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
1 tsp lemon juice (5 mL) 

De-string the green beans and cut into shorter lengths. In pot of boiling water, cook green beans 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender. 

In nonstick frying pan in 1 tbsp (15 mL) bacon fat, over medium heat, toast almonds until browned.  Set aside.

Add remaining bacon fat to frying pan and toss beans in the hot fat, stir frying until hot. Sprinkle green beans with seasoning salt and black pepper, to taste.  Sprinkle with lemon juice and toss.  Plate green beans high on a smallish platter with the toasted almonds on top.
