I crave French fries a lot. Like a LOOOTTT. Who doesn’t? They are salty crunchy goodness…mmm… What if I told you that you can get all of the delicious crunch and taste of a French fry, but in a healthier form? Introducing: green bean fries!
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- Salt and pepper to taste
- ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1-2 pounds washed and trimmed fresh green beans
- ½ cup flour
- 2 large beaten eggs
Preheat your oven to 425, then line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray the foil lightly with cooking spray. In a bowl combine the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Put the flour in a smaller bowl and place the beaten eggs in a separate bowl as well. Take a handful of green beans and dip them into the flour, then eggs, then bread crumb mixture. Make sure they are coated with crumbs really good! After they are covered, place them in a single layer onto the baking sheet. Put the pan in the oven and bake for around 10-12 minutes. Let them cool, then eat them up!
This makes a great appetizer or snack! If you are looking to impress your family with your mad cooking skills, make these for them! They are also a good movie night snack instead of junk food.
