Baked green beans are not your normal fries, but they sure will satisfy!

Baked Green Bean Fries


  • For the green beans:

  • 1 pound fresh green beans, ends trimmed

  • 3/4 cup finely crushed Ritz crackers

  • 1/3 cup parmesan, grated

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne powder

  • 2 eggs

  • For the sauce:

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard

  • 1/4 cup mayo

  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Lightly grease a parchment-lined baking sheet and set aside.

  2. In a bowl, combine crushed crackers, parmesan, garlic powder, and cayenne powder. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs until combined.

  3. Dip each green bean in the egg mixture first, and coat well in the cracker mixture. Place them on the baking sheet and bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until the beans are tender and the crust is golden.

  4. Combine all sauce ingredients in a bowl, and serve with the crispy green bean fries.

- I love some good ole fries, but it's time to cheat on the potato with the green bean. Yep, I'm about to have me a guilt-free affair. It's my kinda cheat day. I got some beautiful fresh green beans here. Don't bother getting the frozen ones or the canned ones. Try to get the fresh ones if you can and all you have to do is trim off the stem and you don't have to worry about this other end. Alright, that looks good. Now, you can't just bake them as-is. They need a good crunch factor in the form of a tasty little coating. And for that, I have some crackers. I'm just going to add them to a processor, blitz them up until they turn into a fine crumb. That looks excellent, nice and crumbly. You want it as small as possible so they can stick onto the green bean. And for a nice salty, cheesy bite, some grated Parmesan cheese. Oh yes, this is gonna be great. No, you don't like my corny jokes? Graters gonna grate. Now, you know I love my spices, so some cayenne powder and garlic powder is going in. Now just mix everything together and at this point you could add a little salt, but I find that the cheese and the crackers add just the right amount of salt for me. Having said that, I'm gonna give it a little taste. Mmm, mmm! That's spicy and I like it. Now for some eggs, for a little dredging action. So we've got the beans, the eggs, and the crumb mixture and I'm just gonna get a tray so that you can spread the green beans out all in one flat layer. Whenever I'm dredging I like to go in with the wet hand and then a dry hand for the crumbs. So, just take the green bean, dip it in the egg, plop it into the dry. Use your other hand... to give it a good coating, little shake and onto the tray. Shaky shaky, into the crumbs, another shaky shaky. Whenever I do stuff like this in the kitchen I like to meditate and think about things like, what is a fry? You know, this isn't really fried, but I consider anything that's kind of this shape that can be inserted into my mouth a fry. These go into the oven at 425 for about 10 to 12 minutes, until it gets nice and golden brown, like me. And crispy, like me. Meanwhile, I'm gonna to make the sauce. You just have to combine equal parts mayo, mustard and honey. Whenever I make green beans, I love adding mustard. It adds a little pucker. It's a perfect love match. So you've got the creaminess from the mayo, a little bite from the mustard, some sweetness with this honey. All we need now is a little bit of tang in the form of apple cider vinegar. Now you just want to mix it up to get most of those lumps out. The fries are ready. They smell so good and they're really, really crispy and I'm gonna show you how I'm gonna serve them. I've got this awesome fry holder and some of this really cute paper. Just roll it up and stick it in. And just stick the fries right on in. Yo, that's like restaurant status right there. Gotta give it a try, that sauce. Mmm, mmm. I never bean so happy. I hope you don't mind if I double dip here. I hope you guys give this a try. I'll see you next time. Remember to just eat life. Mmm.
