  • 14 ounces frozen whole green beans (I use Hanover) or fresh green beans (if fresh, ends snapped off)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs with Parmesan (see Cooking with Mamma C's recipe for Homemade Italian Bread Crumbs)
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  1. If using frozen green beans, microwave them in a heat-safe bowl for two minutes less than the package directions state. (If using fresh green beans, rinse them and boil in a small amount of water for 10 minutes, or until almost cooked to your liking.) Drain any water used in cooking.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add the pre-cooked green beans and the bread crumb mixture to the pan and toss with a spoon to coat evenly. Continue stirring for 3-5 minutes, or until green beans and bread crumbs are cooked to your liking. Add salt and pepper to taste before serving.
