Crispy Baked Green Bean Fries made with bread crumbs are oven roasted for the perfect crunchy appetizer. Serve your game day party guests or eat as a light lunch recipe
Have you tried green beans as an appetizer?
They are so easy to make and delicious because they are not oily or greasy.
For my game day guests, I always have these on hand because they are incredibly popular. No one complains about not having French Fries at the party.
These green bean fries are a no-fuss type of appetizer. Basically, I just coat them in a simple bread crumbs mixture and oven bake them for about 10 minutes.
Just like that, they are ready!
If you want further proof that this is beyond delicious, look at how Thing 2 rated it:

With the big football game coming up, I wanted to make sure you had plenty of ideas for your game day spread. I teamed up with other bloggers to bring you amazing appetizer for any type of gathering. The list of recipes is at the bottom of this post. Visit them and tell them how much you love their recipes.
These crispy baked green bean fries 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 also discovered that all kinds of veggies can be turned into French fries. Just check out my baked eggplant fries which turn even the biggest eggplant hater into a fan.
Someties, we do make the traditional French fries by coating russet potatoes in a dill mixture. Try it and let me know what you think.
Useful Tips for Making These Crispy Baked Green Bean Fries
Over the years, I have made this recipe several times and I have found that a few tips and tricks can make it even easier to make these veggie fries.
- If you like to dip your appetizers, you can serve these with my Chipotle Cheese Dip or my Cilantro Lime Dip for even more addictive deliciousness. You have to try it!
- These bean fries really are best right out of the oven. You can taste the crunch and flavor when they are fresh 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
- If you are making a double or triple batch for a lot of people, you might want to use a large ziploc 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!
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! 🙂
