This simple side dish is a classic crowd-pleaser. Toss cooked green beans with sauteed shallots, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and top iwth crumbled bacon. I have not made these yet, but they sounded yummy, including here for safe keeping. Recipe from

Very tasty and easy! I liked the brightness that a little bit of lemon juice added. I used 1/2 the bacon and consequently, less bacon grease. Also added a bit of garlic salt. Yum! Made for PAC Spring 2014

Made this as instructed only taking some of the bacon grease out before sauteing the shallots. I have never added lemon juice and we really enjoyed it... brighten the flavor. I did use lemon pepper instead of black. Made for Spring PAC 2012.
