How to make Air Fryer Green Beans:
**scroll all the way down for full ingredient list and step by step printable directions**
- Prep the green beans so they are rinsed and dried. Cut off any funky looking ends.
- Make an assembly line: setup whisked eggs in a shallow bowl, and the breadcrumb coating in another shallow bowl.
- Taking a handful of green beans at a time, drop into the eggs and toss around until coated. Using tongs, lift a few of the green beans out, let them drip a bit, then place into the breadcrumb coating mixture. Shake the green beans around until the are fully coated. Place them side by side with a little space in the air fryer, then repeat for the rest of the green beans.
- Set the Air Fryer for 5 minutes and 400 degrees. When 5 minutes is up, carefully toss the green beans around, flipping if needed, then cook for 2 more minutes.
- Serve with your favorite sauce such as BIG MAC SAUCE or COPYCAT ZAX SAUCE!
How to BAKE Green Bean Fries:
- Use the same directions in terms of prepping and coating the green beans. Set the oven to 350 degrees F. Place green bean fries on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cook for 15 minutes, then flip over. Cook 5-7 more minutes or until crispy. To crisp coating further, turn oven to broil on HIGH and broil for 1-2 minutes or until browned. Serve hot!
