Crispy Baked Green Bean Fries are a delicious alternative to traditional fries while getting in a green vegetable!
Green Bean Fries
I made something that isn’t a dessert. Imagine that.
I love green beans. They’re right up there with zucchini for me.
I’ve made baked zucchini sticks but this was my first time making green bean fries.
There are a few steps in the breading process, but they are worth the effort.
They’re crispy and crunchy and I might have eaten the whole plate…
Ingredients you’ll need
Below is a list of the ingredients you’ll need to gather to make this recipe. Scroll all the way down for the full recipe card.
- Fresh Green Beans
- Flour – I used all purpose.
- Seasonings – Garlic salt, paprika, onion powder
- Panko Bread Crumbs – I love the texture of panko but you can use a traditional or Italian seasoned breadcrumb if you prefer.
What to dip green bean fries into
I made a simple sauce of ranch dressing mixed with Frank’s hot sauce for a spicy ranch dipping sauce but you could also use yum yum sauce or even jack daniels sauce.

These look great! Good for you going mostly meat free since October! That’s awesome! I tried to give up meat one year for Lent and didn’t make it even a week I don’t think, haha! 😉
Oops Melissa, sorry, Joann again. The “freezing question” I just asked about? Same question on your Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Bites and your Baked Zucchini Fries. These would be great recipes to help me “put-up” my gardening results. Thanks again!
Melissa Williams says
Hi Joann – welcome =) I have never tried it, unfortunately. It’s possible, I’m sure (I think I’ve seen Baked Green Bean Fries in the freezer section), I’m just not sure of technique. I’d love to hear how it works out if you try!
