I love to eat the fried greenbeans at Fridays, so I was wondering, does anyone know how to make them at home???? I really, really want some with dinner tomorrow but I don't want to drive to get them, we live about 30 minutes away from the closest one! TIA!

Sounds great! I grill greenbeans with garlic and chopped tomatoes, olive oil. Are they deep fried or skillet fried? Breaded?

Combine dip ingredients in blender. Blend until smooth.
Place in bowl; cover and chill till ready to use. Dip will thicken as it chills.
Place beans in the broth.
Bring to a boil and cook 15 minutes, then place in cold water to stop cooking process.
Mix beaten egg with milk in a shallow bowl.
Measure 1 cup of flour into another shallow bowl.
Combine bread crumbs, 3/4 teaspoons salt, black pepper, onion powder and garlic powder into a third bowl.
Take a handful of beans out of the water and shake off excess liquid.
Coat the beans with the flour, shaking to remove excess flour.
Dip the beans, one at a time, into egg/milk mixture, then dip in breadcrumb mixture.
Place the beans on a plate until all are coated.
Heat the shortening or oil to 350*F in a heavy skillet(or use deep fryer). Use enough to cover the beans, about 1 1/2 inches.
Fry until golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes.
Drain on paper towels.
To serve, place on a large platter and serve with the wasabi cucumber ranch dip. Enjoy!

breaded and deep fried.....yum..........

If you have a fry daddy thingy, you could make them. Just do seasoned breading with salt and pepper and deep fry really quickly.
