Fried Green Beans

Jodies Kitchen Fried Green Beans

I started looking for different ways to make green beans several years ago when we had them coming out the wazoo from the garden.I had to come up with something I knew my little one would eat as well.
In past years I had eaten fried green beans at restaurants and enjoyed them myself.
I thought possibly my little one might enjoy them as well.
I have played around with the recipe several ways and came up with this basic one which works pretty well for my family.
My little one loves them,and I have no problem getting him to eat these at all.
If you like dipping sauces you could definitely dip these in your favorite.

We normally just eat up while they are hot...You will want to do these in batches so you don't over crowd your pot..It is a little time consuming but well worth it... Good Luck
