Can you believe it’s three days until Easter? It seems like yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t it? Time is fly-ing!!
Is your dinner menu all planned out for Easter Sunday, or do you have room for one more dish?? Please say you have room because these green beans NEED a place on your table. I know what you’re thinking… green beans are green beans Mary Ann! Am I right? Well, yes, I agree, but these Greens Beans with Horseradish Panko Crumbs are NOT your boring old green beans. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty tired of the old green bean casserole that usually makes an appearance every holiday. It’s time to change it up and spice it up, and these green beans do just the trick.
They’re tossed with a mixture of butter and Dijon mustard and then topped with the tastiest panko crumbs ever. The panko crumbs are mixed with some butter and some spicy horseradish for a nice, zesty kick. Then they’re sautéed up in a skillet until they’re perfectly browned. You may want to eat the crumbs right out of the pan, but just sprinkle them on top of the green beans and you’ve got a new delicious side that will surely become a holiday favorite!
Hope you enjoy friends and I wish you and your families a Blessed and Happy Easter!
