We love Fried Green Beans! Actually, we love most anything fried. We fry just about all of our garden vegetables in some sort of corn meal of flour mix all summer long. We fry and or bake them and love the crunch it gives them! Making the batter to your taste is the key to enjoying your meal! Remember, you can add or subtract things you don’t like! Most recipes like this one are very adaptable! 

Ok, we are going to need a good bowl to mix out the batter in! This bowl is terrific. They also have lids so you can save your excess batter in the refrigerator if you need to or make it ahead. These are from our affiliate.

Ingredients for: Fried Green Beans

  • Fresh green beans (a few large handfuls), washed and ends trimmed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup Corn Meal
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • (2 Tsp Lemon Pepper) Optional
  • Oil for frying (We like Olive Oil)

Directions for: Fried Green Beans

  1. Add 1/2 inch of oil to a large skillet and pre-heat over medium heat until the beans will fry when added.
  2. Add egg and milk in a wide shallow bowl and mix well. Set this aside.
  3. Combine all dry ingredients in another bowl and mix well.
  4. Dip green beans in the flour mixture and shake off excess flour. Dip floured green beans in the egg/milk mixture. Finally, coat each green bean in panko crumbs.
  5. Dip green beans in the egg mixture and then into the flour mix, coat well.
  6. After dipping your green beans put them into the skillet and fry until golden brown before flipping and frying on the other side.
  7. Place your fried green beans on a plate with paper towel and allow to drain slightly.

Dressing Dip for: Fried Green Beans

We like Ranch Dressing and this is a dip I found online. I am going to try this as it has to be delicious with these two simple ingredients!
