Crispy Baked Green Bean Fries | - Crunchy, addictive, AND healthy? It's true - you need to try these! #vegetables #appetizer #sidedish


For today’s post, I am sharing my recipe for Crispy Baked Green Bean Fries.  They provide all the fun and even more flavor than regular fries, but none of the calories and fat!  My kids do not care much for green beans in general, but this recipe had them not only enjoying them, but reaching for more.  The coating is delicious and, just like French fries, you can’t eat just one!

I have a few notes on this recipe.  First, if you like to dip your appetizers, you can serve these with my Chipotle Cheese Dip for even more addictive deliciousness. You have to try it! Second, these really are best right out of the oven; however, in the unlikely event that you have leftovers, you can reheat them in your oven or toaster oven and they will turn out almost as good as the originals, although maybe not quite as crispy.  Third, if you are making a double or triple batch for a lot of people, you might want to use a large ziplock bag so you can coat a bunch of greens beans at once.  Coating them a few at a time would take too long with a large number of greens beans!

Thing 2 rating = 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5 biscuits).

These fries make great appetizers, but I also use them as a side dish for dinners.  It gets the kids to eat more veggies, woohoo!  :-)

        Hi Donna, I happen to like green beans, and I also like asparagus. You could definitely try this with asparagus and I bet it would be really good. Thanks for stopping by!

    I had these at Old Chicago once, although theirs were fried instead of baked. (not going to find much healthy at that place!) There were pretty good. I’ll have to give these a try.

    As far as my favorite spice? Garlic. Garlic for me is like Frank’s Red Hot for Ethel. I put it on everything!

    I plan to make these to go with dinner tonight! Such a good idea baking them! But tell me, did you boil the fresh green beans before dipping them?

    • Kristin King says

      Hi Ashleigh! I didn’t boil them first, I just went right to dipping them. My biggest piece of advice with these is to serve them right out of the oven! If they sit for a while, they get a little limp and lose their crispiness (but still taste delicious!) I hope you enjoy them!
