It's Carla Hall , of the "Crew" , to the rescue by jazzing up some green beans into this tasty treat. Try them they are delicious!!

In a shallow dish combine all dry ingredients, set aside.

In another shallow dish combine beer or buttermilk and whisk in the egg.

Dredge green beens beans in dry mixture, then wet mixture, then back to the dry mixture.

Place beans into the hot oil, fry until golden brown, about 1-2-minutes.
Remove to metal strainer then to paper towel lined baking sheet(helps keep
the green beans from getting soggy).

In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard and salt to taste.
Serve the beans with the creamy dipping sauce!
Or use a BBQ Bacon Ranch as dip or
Zesty Horseradish with sour cream or
Maple syrup with Honey Mustard

This sounds really good. But, I'm not sure you can 'overcook' green beans here in the South. LOL
