Sharon's Hint

Reheat in the air fryer if there are leftovers!


Step 1. 

Start with dry beans. Add egg and egg white into a medium sized bowl; whisk until combined and uniform in color. Set aside.

Step 2. 

In another medium sized bowl, add panko, breadcrumbs, garlic powder, cheese, salt, and pepper; stir to mix well and set aside. 

Step 3. 

Make an assembly line with the beans, whisked egg, and then breadcrumb mixture setup side by side. 

Step 4. 

Taking a handful of green beans at a time, drop them into the egg, and toss around until coated. Using tongs, lift a few of the green beans out, let them drip a bit, then place into the breadcrumb coating mixture. Move the beans around until they are fully coated with crumbs.  Place them side by side with a little space in the air fryer, then repeat coating for the rest of the green beans, and set into air fryer.

Step 5. 

Set the Air Fryer for 5 minutes and 400 degrees. When 5 minutes is up, carefully toss the green beans around, flipping if needed, then cook for 2 more minutes. Remove with tongs and serve immediately and serve with Sriracha aioli.

Step 6. 

To make aioli, add mayonnaise, lime juice, garlic and Sriracha together in a small bowl and whisk until combined. Refrigerate any leftover sauce.
