This holiday favorite is great to make for a family dinner, or a budget-friendly option for a potluck. This recipe can be made gluten-free if you use gluten-free bread crumbs. But if you don’t have gluten-free bread crumbs you can also use corn tortilla chips instead!
If you tend to have a busy home around dinner time, then roasted green beans are an easy recipe to fit into your dinner dance too. You need minimal counter space for the food processor to make the topping, and the beans and the topping cook together on a sheet pan in the oven. Simply pair this recipe with a lean protein and a high-fiber starch to complete your meal.
