Green Beans have always been one of my favorites. Especially when they’re fresh.
Growing up, I always looked forward to certain friends’ houses in summer, because I knew we’d get fresh beans from the garden. They’re crunchy and flavorful and fun to eat, and to be honest, I love eating them raw. Because they’re that good.
But at some point I discovered the magic of roasting….and believe me when I say that once you roast, you’ll never look at veggies the same way.
I love ALL vegetables roasted, but there’s something about these roasted green beans – with parmesan and panko bread crumbs – that’s extra. Extra delicious. Extra satisfying. Extra – dare I say – addictive!?!
And the real beauty of them is that my kids totally agree! They’ll gobble up an entire pan of these bad boys without blinking an eye. Which, in my book, is a total win. And I’m not gonna lie. I could gobble up an entire pan of them all on my own.
Simply put, these are the BEST.

How do you make Roasted Green Beans?

Can you use frozen or canned green beans?
I would NOT recommend either in this recipe. Since both varieties are pre-cooked, the end result would be mushy instead of crisp. If you don’t have access to fresh, and have to choose between the two, I would use frozen and watch them closely so you don’t over-cook them.
Can you use regular bread crumbs?
You can substitute regular bread crumbs for panko; however, the end result will not be as crispy.
