Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh green beans

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs

  • 2 cups vegetable oil, or as needed

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; cook beans in boiling water until bright green, about 2 minutes. Immediately transfer green beans to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain and pat dry beans with paper towels.

  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Pour flour into a bowl. Whisk egg in a separate bowl. Pour bread crumbs into a third bowl.

  4. Coat green beans with flour; transfer to beaten egg and coat evenly. Press coated green beans into bread crumbs.

  5. Working in batches, fry breaded green beans in hot oil until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer fried beans to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
