Green Bean Garlic "Fries"
Ingredients: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.
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!
