Fried Green Beans

Crispy Fried Green Beans are delicious when served as an appetizer or side dish. Make sure you have some remoulade sauce or ranch for dipping!


  • 1 lb Fresh Green Beans, stem end removed
  • 1.5 c All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 c Stone Ground Corn Meal
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 c Buttermilk 
  • 1 tbs Water
  • Oil for frying

Add half an inch of cooking oil to a skillet and heat over medium high.

In one bowl combine the dry mixture of flour, cornmeal and seasonings.

In a second bowl whisk together the wet mixture of the egg, buttermilk & water.

Dredge green beans in the wet mixture and then coat in the dry mixture.

Set dredged green beans aside on a sheet of foil or sheet pan. You're going to want all of the beans dredged because they cook quickly.

Fry in batches so you don't over crowd the skillet until golden brown.

Once browned as desired remove to a paper towel lined plate or sheet pan lined with a cooling rack to drain excess oil.

Serve hot.
