Parmesan Prosciutto Green Beans
A family favorite! You’ll find this dish on my holiday table often. Easy to prepare and full of flavor. Here’s the recipe:
1.5 pounds fresh green beans
3 oz prosciutto (I use the packaged Boar’s Head brand. Prosciutto sliced in the deli may not fry very well)
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup shaved Parmesan
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/2 stick butter, cut into small pats
Wash green beans and remove stems. Place in large pot of boiling water (no need to add salt since this recipe has lots of salty ingredients). Cook beans until they are just tender. Drain and set aside.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place olive oil in a frying pan and place over medium-high heat. When oil is hot place prosciutto slices in the pan and fry, turning once, until prosciutto is crispy. Remove slices from pan and place on a plate lined with paper towels.
In a bowl combine parmesan and panko bread crumbs. Place green beans in a baking dish and sprinkle with panko bread crumb mixture, toss to combine. Dot the green beans with the butter pats. Crumble the prosciutto and sprinkle it over the green beans. Place green beans in oven and bake for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
