Get Off The Couch and Cook

Get Off The Couch and Cook -

Crunchy Baked Green Beans


Simple green greens go from boring to fun with just a little panko (Japanese style breadcrumbs), oil and seasonings and a few minutes in the oven.


Remember the Pork & Pepper Burgers I made a couple of weeks ago?  These beans are the side dish I made to go with those and it really was a good pairing as these brought a salty crunch to the mix.

And these could hardly be easier!  I used thawed green beans from the freezer but you could certainly use fresh as well.  Just be sure to parboil them first.  I have an issue with green beans squeaking when I chew them so I like the frozen ones better in that regard.


The beans are coated in a little oil then tossed with panko, Parmesan and garlic powder then baked for only about 7 minutes.  It’s a super quick, super easy side which is perfect for weeknights.

What are some of your favorite fast sides for during the week?
