Crispy Parmesan Green Beans

I love pairing this crispy green bean recipe side dish alongside Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Pineapple Ham main dish! Hang on, you’re in for a colourful and flavourful treat!

Over the holiday break, we had a terrible cold snap which forced us indoors more than we’d have liked. Yet, the house all warm and the need for comfort just meant that I spent a lot of time in the kitchen making new recipes {and updating old ones with prettier new images}.

You’ll see an influx of recipes posted here for the next few weeks, since a lot of the recipes I tried were winners and dare worthy of sharing.

Roasted Parmesan Green Beans is one example! I make green beans as a meal side dish quite often, yet wanted to try a new twist on a favourite.

Usually I steam or boil green beans and then lightly toss with butter, salt and pepper before serving. This is an especially perfect side dish to go along with my Beat Meatloaf ever recipe! Which is totally fine and yummy.

Yet one day I craved something newish for one of my favourite vegetables sides. These best green beans are also a relatively healthy side dish.

I had some parmesan left over from a pasta dish I made earlier in the week, along with some panko crumbs from crispy chicken for lunchtime wraps.

I’m trying to get better at using up ingredients, far too often I use them for one sole reason then they go to waste. So, these became staples for this new green bean side dish recipe!

Roasted Parmesan Green Beans is easy peasy to make and the taste is fab. Baking with these few ingredients gives it a bit of a crunch.

  1. These look really tasty. And I think most veggies taste better roasted, seems to bring out some sweetness in the vegetable. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Great timing! I am also making more of an effort to using up ingredients, so I just made bread crumbs with bread ends with the new food processor my mother in law gave me for Christmas. I am now looking for things to add them to! Also looking for recipes that use apple sauce. I make muffins with it, but the jar always goes moldy before I go to use it again. No more!!!

    Love green beans! 🙂 I used to combine them with roasted potatoes, with garlic. Will try this for sure!

  3. I haven’t made green beans for a long time, so looking forward to trying this recipe, thx.
