Fried Green Beans

Linda Griffith


We were on vacation last week and my brother in law took us to an Italian Restaurant on Italian Hill. I had my first taste of fried green beans and boy were they delicious. I couldn't wait to get home so that I could share with you. This recipe and photo is courtesy of the McNeeley's on Food Network. This is an easy recipe and so delicious. The restaurant used frozen ones that they got from their supplier but I can't remember the name. These are fresh green beans...I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did.
