Well, hello there. I’m back from a family wedding and much-needed vacation in California. I hope this past week has been good to you.
As I mentioned in my last post, I have some recipes to share featuring Homemade Italian Bread Crumbs. (I promise not to bombard you with them all in a row.)
These Green Beans with Bread Crumbs are one of my favorite side dishes that Mom makes. Green beans are cooked until almost done (by boiling or microwaving), and then sautéed briefly with melted butter and cheesy Italian bread crumbs.
I’m pretty sure if you looked up veggie comfort food, you’d find a picture of these green beans. I could make a meal out of them and not miss a thing.
I wouldn’t recommend it though. It’s a texture thing.
Homemade breadcrumbs, however, provide that “wow” factor. The bonus is that if you prepare the bread crumbs ahead of time, it will take 15 minutes or less to get these green beans on the table.
Or heck, just stand at the stove and eat them out of the pan. I’ll understand completely.
