Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Arrange bacon in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast until opaque, about 5 minutes.

  • Remove the pan from the oven. Stir in beans, shallot, paprika, salt, and pepper; spread into a single layer. Roast until the beans are lightly browned and tender and the bacon is crisp, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in vinegar and lemon juice, and roast 1 to 2 minutes more.
