Copycat Green Bean Fries Recipe
Ah, fried green beans–we love them. Pick green beans fresh out of your garden during the summer or buy them at the store the rest of the year. Either way, they taste fresh and crisp and are just so good to make in fresh green bean recipes.
Fried food is good food, but its not the healthiest thing in the world. We like using an oil-less deep fryer to get the same great taste of fried food without all the extra calories and fats.
