To complete my steak in green peppercorn sauce meal I needed only one more thing, something green. I like to try to include green vegetables in my meals whenever possible. Green beans are still readily available at the farmers market and I wanted to do something with them. I remembered seeing a recipe for green beans in parmesan and sage breadcrumbs that sounded nice. I did not have the sage on hand so I decided to use the thyme that I did have. The green beans in parmesan bread crumbs were really easy to make and took very little effort. The toasted parmesan bread crumbs were really tasty and provided a nice crunchy texture to the green beans.
Green Beans with Parmesan Bread Crumbs
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 clove garlic (chopped)
- 1 tablespoon thyme (chopped, or sage)
- 1/4 cup bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano (grated)
- 1 pound green beans (trimmed, steamed)
- Heat the oil in a pan.
- Add garlic and thyme and saute until fragrant, about one minute.
- Add the breadcrumbs and parmigiano reggiano and saute until golden brown and toasted.
- Remove from heat and toss with the steamed green beans.

Yeah, it’s always a good idea to include green in your daily meals 🙂 I love this side-dish, Kevin, and maybe even more than sage 😉
What a lovely side dish for any meal! It looks and sounds delicious!
Delicious side dish for any kind of steaks.

This sounds easy and delicious. I love Parmesan bread crumbs, they really go well with green beans.
These look delish…and so much more healthy than the casserole alternative.
That looks like a delicious side dish!

Ooh – this looks delish! Green beans are great by themselves, but even nicer when seasoned up a bit. I love this dish.
What an excellent idea, I adore green beans and they are low in carbs!
I love to put breadcrumbs on everything, but I’ve never put them on green beans!!!

I like how green these stayed!

I love green beans and yours look great. I bet this would work well with broccoli also….
My mo made a similar dish as this, but she added marinated artichoke hearts. Great recipe!
Happy Holidays, Kevin!
What a beautiful meal Kevin. I may have to make this for the holidays. I love the idea of crunchy parmesan on the tender green beans.
yum these look like the perfect side dish!
I adore green beans, and love that this is such an easy, tasty way to dress them up!
I’m from sweden and I read your blog every day. I love your delightful pictures and your terrific recipes! A big hug from Frida! 🙂
What a delicious, simple idea for green beans! Why didn’t I think of that?!
I’m loving the Parmesan bread crumbs! A fine way to serve green beans.
You do make delightful looking meals! Can I come to your house? I’ll leave the entourage behind…

Hey Kevin 🙂 I’m a few posts back, but yesterday afternoon I made your cranberry, oatmeal, white chocolate cookies, althought I subbed slivered almonds for the pistacios. I also used almond extract instead of vanilla. OMG I love you because this is the PERFECT cookie recipe ever! It’ was amazing, I underbaked the cookies JUST a tad and they disappeared between 5 people last night lol.
Thanks for the recipe, I’m keeping it forever! (I also used quick cooking oats and they worked fine).
Those green beans look cooked to perfection, and I love the addition of parmesan and bread crumbs. Looks and sounds stupendous.
I was to surprised to see the parmesan here! What a great idea! I think I’d actually prefer the thyme over the sage, although either one would be delicious. This looks so pretty, and I bet it tasted terrific with your steak and onions. YUM!
Everyone’s doing green beans right now…I think the breadcrumbs nail this.
These sound great! I love this as an alternative to most of the heavy winter veggies. I’ll definitely try this as a side dish soon,
A delicious sounding side dish!
wow, i am always looking for ways to cook green beans. i will definitely use this next time!
How simple & perfect – greenery, but with a hint of indulgence!
