Green Bean Garlic "Fries"

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


  1. 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. 
  2. 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. 
  3. 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. 
  4. Bake at 425 degrees for approximately 12 minutes or until the panko is browned and crispy. 
This is a good recipe to let your kids help with. My daughter loves coating them in the flour and then moving them to the eggs/milk mixture. 
Here's a close up shot of all of the crispy goodness. I think the garlic adds a really nice flavor to the green beans. 

I ate most of mine plain, but ketchup makes a great dipping sauce. Really any sauce you like would probably work well. My daughter was really fond of ranch dressing. 

I hope you give them a try and let me know how it goes!
