So, I haven’t done one of these “morsels” posts in a while. The premise behind them is that I try a new recipe. What does this say for my cooking…not really mixing it up much these days. I tried a new recipe for New Years Eve though, and I am glad I did. It was tasty. After a change of plans Peter and I spent the night at home just the two of us. I made some appetizers and we made a dinner out of it. It was nice to hang out watching movies in our pjs. We may or may not
Fried Green Beans
- 2 dozen green beans
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup panko
- 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1/2 tablespoon oregano
- Enough oil to fry beans
- Set-up a breading station ( 1/2 flour, milk, and 1/2 panko.) I pulsed the panko, garlic powder, and oregano together in a food processor so that the panko was fine.
- Start by rolling the bean in flour, dip it in the milk, and roll it in the panko mixture. Place in a bowl. Once all the green beans are through, repeat so that each bean is double breaded.
- Heat oil to 350˚. Place green beans in oil without crowding. Let fry until breading is golden- 3 to 4 minutes. Remove with tongs and place on sheets of paper towels.
Would also work to bake.
I served mine with a spicy Ranch dressing. I am glad I remembered to take a picture before Peter saw that they were done because they didn’t last long after that.
