  • 3/4 lb fresh green beans
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon each thyme and oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • Oil for frying
  • Seasoning salt
  1. Wash green beans. In a bowl, toss flour and seasonings except seasoning salt. In a second bowl, whisk eggs, milk, 2 tablespoons flour and 1/2 cup water.
  2. Place the green beans in a large ziploc bag. Add about 3/4 cup of the flour mixture and shake well to coat. Using a fork, gently lift out about 6 beans and put them into the egg mixture. Using a fork, remove them from the egg mixture and into the flour mixture in the bowl. Toss to coat. (So it's Flour. Egg. Flour.)
  3. Place on a rack while coating the remaining beans. Gently tap the rack to remove excess flour before frying.
  4. Heat deep fryer or a couple of inches of oil in a pan to 360-375 degrees. Place the beans into the deep fryer or oil in small batches for about 3-4 minutes or until browned and crispy. Be sure not to overcrowd them. Remove from oil, drain on paper towels and sprinkle with seasoning salt.
  5. Serve hot with ranch.
