I actually had never thought about frying green beans until my husband and I ate at the TGI Fridays in Wilminton, NC and found them on the menu.
I’m always up for trying new things when we go out to eat, so this was my opportunity to try a fried green bean and see if it was something I could even eat. But of course since almost anything that has been battered and fried taste like heaven, this was a hit.
My Fried Green Beans are not quite as heavily coated as the ones at the restaurant but still just as tasty and so very simple.
