What Foods these Morsels be: Fried Green Beans

IMG_1390
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 crashed have fallen asleep at 11pm. What party animals! Anyway, one of the appetizers I made that was not frozen were these yummy fried green beans, because who doesn’t occasionally want to fatten up vegetables?! I got the recipe from Naturally Ella.

Fried Green Beans
Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
Notes
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.
