The green bean season is in full swing, so it's no wonder that green beans often appear on our tables. Many people add breadcrumbs to them. However, how can you prepare them so they don't lose their unique flavor? We know a simple way.

Green beans can be served in many ways. The most popular method is cooking them in water and adding sautéed breadcrumbs. Unfortunately, this method doesn't always yield the desired result. Luckily, there is a simple trick to making the topping taste like grandma's.

Breadcrumbs for green beans

This method has been popular in many homes for years. Green beans are a true treasure trove of fiber, which benefits the digestive system. No wonder they're appreciated not only for their taste but also for their health benefits.

Green beans can be a side dish for dinner or even a main dish. Those who choose the latter option often add sautéed breadcrumbs, immediately bringing back childhood flavors. So, how do you make it?

It turns out that the key to perfect breadcrumbs for green beans is the order of ingredients added to the pan. Many people first sauté the fat, which is a common mistake.

To preserve the breadcrumbs' flavor, it's best to sauté them directly in the pan without using butter or oil. Add these only when the breadcrumbs start to brown. After a few minutes, the topping should be ready.

What to use breadcrumb topping for?

Breadcrumb topping is versatile; it’s helpful with cooked green beans and other dishes. It is often added to cauliflower, further enhancing its flavor.

Not everyone knows that breadcrumbs sautéed in fat also work well with cheese pierogies and even fruit-filled pierogies.
