A few weeks ago I saw a recipe for Green Bean Fries on Sweeties Freebies and I was intrigued. I love fresh green beans, but I’m always looking for new ways to serve them. I decided to give them my own, healthier spin, and I created my Green Bean Garlic “Fries.” They are so delicious! They have a nice coating that gets really crispy in the oven. The green beans are tender, but not mushy. My kids even ate them, which is saying something. They seem to have a strong aversion to green vegetables.
Green Bean Garlic “Fries”
1/2 lb fresh green beans, ends trimmed
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup milk
1 cup panko bread crumbs
2 Tbsp garlic powder
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick spray. Wash, dry, and trim the ends off of the green beans.
- Set up 3 containers for dipping. Flour in the first. The beaten eggs and milk in the second. The panko and garlic powder in the third.
- A few green beans at a time, coat them in flour, the egg mixture, and finally the panko mixture. Place the coated green beans on the baking sheet.
- Bake at 425 degrees for approximately 12 minutes or until the panko is browned and crispy.
