I made these last week with some chicken, parmesan, basil pasta (I'll post later). My boys loved them because they ate the green beans with their fingers like french fries. The only note I would add is that more salt may need to be added (I would use kosher salt). Also I have a big ranch family and they liked dipping their beans in homemade ranch. Very very healthy! *grin*
Crispy Parmesan Ranch Crusted Green Beans *picky palate
¾ Cup prepared Ranch Dressing (I prefer Hidden Valley Seasoning to make my own) 1 egg, beaten 1 ½ Cups panko bread crumbs ½ Cup grated parmesan cheese ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon pepper ½ lb washed and trimmed fresh green beans (I used some green beans I picked this summer and froze, they still worked really well)
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Combine ranch dressing and egg together in a shallow dish. Combine panko, parmesan, salt and pepper in a separate shallow dish. Lightly dip beans into ranch dressing. Press into crumb mixture then place onto a parchment lined baking sheet (they’ll stick to the pan if not, even if sprayed with cooking spray). Do this process until all beans have been coated. Bake for 15 minutes or until crust is crispy and golden. Let cool for 3 minutes then serve.
I'm the mother to three very energetic little boys and a wife to a man who rocks my world!
I decided a long time ago that staying home, with complete 24/7 focus on my family, was the career path for me.
I probably laugh more than I should, yell more than I should, and do not stay put anywhere as long as I should...
We try to make God the center of our home, a guest at at every meal, and a silent listener to every conversation...
We live on Main Street in Crazy Town, USA!!!
President David O. McKay declared: "Motherhood is the greatest potential influence either for good or ill in human life. The mother's image is the first that stamps itself on the unwritten page of the young child's mind. It is her caress that first awakens a sense of security, her kiss, the first realization of affection; her sympathy and tenderness, the first assurance that there is love in the world." (Gospel Ideals, p. 452.) President McKay continues: "Motherhood consists of three principal attributes or qualities: namely, (1) the power to bear, (2) the ability to rear, (3) the gift to love. . . This ability and willingness properly to rear children, the gift to love, and eagerness, yes, longing to express it in soul development, make motherhood the noblest office or calling in the world. She who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions deserves the admiration and the plaudits of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, . . . deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God." (Gospel Ideals, pp. 453-54.)
