String beans with bread crumbs

My moms green bean recipe. For color I added some yellow beans too as they took over my garden


  1. 1 lb string beans
  2. 2 tbsp butter
  3. 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs


  1. In a pot boil well salted water Alternatively you can use a steaming basket Add the bean and cook little under the desired tenderness I like my beans crunchy so as soon as they turn bright green they are done
  2. While the beans are cooking prepare a bowl with water and ice With slotted spoon transfer the beans to ice bath to stop the cooking process Remove when cold and spread on paper towel
  3. In a large skillet melt butter when foamy add bread crumbs Stir to coat and add beans Shake skillet vigorously to coat the beans
  4. Stir few times until beans are warm again serve with choice of meat You can squeeze lemon on it while on a plate Enjoy
