Green Bean Fries with a Trio of Dipping Sauces

Green Bean Fries platingsandpairings.com

Green Bean Fries platingsandpairings.comGreen Bean Fries have become a popular appetizer item at many restaurants. I think that I could go to town on those things and fill up before the main course even comes to the table. I decided to give a go at making these crispy little string beans a bit healthier at home. To do so, I’m using the oven, instead of a deep fryer. Coating them in crushed up crackers and giving them a light spray of oil before popping them into the oven does the trick and provides such a great, crispy texture, you won’t want to turn back to the original version!

I paired mine with a trio of dipping sauces – Honey Mustard, Greek Goddess, and Sriracha Cream. If you’ve got kiddos at home, they’re going to love eating their vegetables this way. Kids love to dip!
