  1. Bring a 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 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. Fry breaded green beans, working in batches, in the hot oil until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer fried beans to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

These are excellent. As soon as I pulled them out of the grease I tossed them with sea salt and ranch dressing powder. Great!

Really good with an addition of flavoring. I added garlic, and pepper to the flour, and the panko. Also it needed an extra egg, but I knew that the minute I cracked it, must have been a small ...
