Crispy baked parmesan green beans. I was looking for some side dish recipes on Food Network, but nothing really hit the spot for me. I did see a few recipes with green beans, but who loves plain old green beans? If you nodded your head, more power to you but I’ve just never been a fan. What I am a fan of is crispy green beans, and that’s what today’s post is about.
Yes it does involve a little more work than opening a can, but it’s so worth it! I’ll admit I sometimes will use some of the leftover breadcrumb mixture and add it to the pan so I get bits of just baked parmesan. There isn’t much better than fried cheese! We’re talking about green beans today however, and the breadcrumb mixture gives a great crunchy texture for these crispy green beans.
What makes these crispy green beans great is you can use them as a side or even as an appetizer. I love recipes that can be used in multiple ways so I hope you give this a try. Enjoy! If you’re looking for other ideas, try these baked sweet potato fries or parmesan zucchini chips.
