This twist on the French fry combines a savory taste of summer with a pleasant crunch.


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons white pepper
  • Peanut oil, for frying
  • 2 pounds fresh green beans, washed and ends snapped off


Mix the eggs in a shallow bowl. Combine the panko crumbs with the salt and pepper in another bowl.

In a large heavy pot or deep-fryer, heat the oil to 365 degrees. Use a kitchen thermometer to verify the temperature.

In small batches, about 2 cups each, dredge the beans in the egg mixture and then roll in the bread crumb mixture.

Using kitchen tongs, add the green beans to the hot oil. Cook for about 5 minutes until crisp and slightly brown. Using a slotted spoon, remove the green beans from the oil and spread them on a sheet pan lined with paper towels. Transfer to a bowl and serve hot.

Air Fryer Green Bean Fries

Air fryer green bean fries are crispy, tender, and have the best crunch! This low-carb appetizer only takes 4 minutes to cook and is always a hit when served on game day, at parties, or as a snack.

Recipe Summary

  • 2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • 1 (16 ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 (6 ounce) can crispy fried onions (such as Durkee®)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Fill a large bowl with ice and cold water.

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add green beans and cook, uncovered, until crisp-tender, about 6 minutes. Drain in a colander and immediately immerse in ice water for several minutes to stop the cooking process. Drain and transfer to a large bowl

Heat 3 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion in the hot butter until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and garlic saute until mushrooms are just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Stir into green beans.

Place remaining 5 tablespoons butter in a 2-quart, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high power in 30 second intervals, until melted.

Add flour to melted butter and whisk until smooth. Add sea salt and pepper, then add 1 cup of milk whisk until mixed together. Microwave for 2 minutes. Add the next cup of milk, whisking until smooth microwave for 2 minutes. The roux mixture should thicken between additions, less so as each cup is added. Add remaining cup of milk microwave for 2 minutes more, and then whisk.

Pour the green bean mixture into a 9x13-inch baking pan. Add the thickened roux and combine. Add salt and pepper if desired.

Bake in the preheated oven until warm and bubbly, about 30 minutes. Top with crispy fried onions and return to the oven for 5 minutes.

Useful Tips for Making These Crispy Baked Green Bean Fries

Over the years, I have made this breaded green bean recipe many times, and I have found a few tips and tricks to share with you!

  • 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 served immediately. You get the maximum crunch and flavor when they are fresh out of the oven.
  • However, in the unlikely event that you have leftovers, store them in the fridge, then 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 zipper-close 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 green beans!
  • Looking to change the flavors up a bit? Substitute this homemade French fry seasoning for the seasoning in this recipe. YUM!
  • Hate the thought of trimming a bunch of green beans at the end of a long day? Yeah, me too! Luckily, now you can buy bags of fresh green beans that are already washed and trimmed. Sure, they are more expensive, but I know myself and I know that it's very likely that I will bail on serving a vegetable if I have to do a lot of tedious work to get it ready, so to me it's worth paying the extra money!

This breaded fresh green bean recipe is on the table in less than 30 minutes and your whole family will love it!

Key Ingredients For Green Bean Fries

I used only simple ingredients that are easy to find in your grocery store. This is a very basic recipe, but the flavor is so incredible that you'll have people asking for it again!

Here is some more information about the ingredients I used:

  • Green Beans: Use fresh green beans that have been washed and trimmed. Frozen or canned will not work as green bean fries.
  • Bread Crumbs: Since I used my own spices, I used plain breadcrumbs. If you want to save yourself a step, you can use seasoned breadcrumbs. I usually got for Italian or cajun seasoned coating. For a crispier fry texture, use Panko breadcrumbs!
  • Salt and Pepper: Skip the salt and pepper if you use flavored or spiced bread crumbs.
  • Onion Powder: Use onion powder instead of raw onions. It mixes in with the breadcrumbs and covers the fries evenly.
  • Garlic Powder: Use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. Fresh garlic will be too strong and won't mix in as evenly as the powder.
  • Egg Whites: A vegan substitute for egg whites is aquafaba - the leftover liquid from a can of garbanzo beans that you whip. The flavor of beans cooks out so you just have the chemical properties that act just like the egg whites!

The beans may stick a bit to the pan so make sure your foil is well-greased, but it should be fairly easy to dislodge them with a firm scoop of a spatula.

You’ll find many important nutrients in green beans. They are high in Vitamin C, a good source of fiber and Vitamin A, and also contain potassium, folate, magnesium, calcium, iron and other essential vitamins and minerals.

Green beans are a great vegetable to include in a weight loss eating plan. You probably won’t lose weight just by incorporating green beans in your diet, but they can contribute to a healthy body weight combined with other healthy foods and exercise.

While this recipe is created for fresh green beans, I wanted to answer this common question.

Canned green beans are very common throughout the year when fresh aren’t available, or are more expensive. But are they as good for you?

Canned vegetables can be very affordable, but most people assume that canned vegetables are not as healthy as fresh. Processing methods such as canning and freezing do cause some nutrient loss, but it is fairly minimal and the rest of the nutrients are preserved over longer periods of time compared to buying fresh vegetables.

The major difference between fresh and canned is the sodium content of canned foods. Because of related health risks, it’s common for many consumers to steer clear of canned foods due to the high sodium content.

Look for low-sodium canned vegetables and decrease the sodium content of canned foods by draining and rinsing with water. Soaking or rinsing canned vegetables in water can decrease the sodium content by as much as 50%.

If you aren’t getting enough vegetables otherwise, canned vegetables can be very helpful, and healthy, to help you meet your recommended veggie intake.

Include canned, fresh, frozen, dried, and juiced veggies into your diet for a wide variety of nutrients and health benefits.

So, get some fresh green beans and try this recipe to boost your veggie intake today.
