  • 1 pound fresh green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • canola oil


  • In a pot over medium heat, bring about 4-inches of lightly-salted water to a boil. Add green beans and blanch for about 1 minute or until half done. 
  • With a slotted spoon, remove green beans and plunge directly into a bowl of iced water. Drain well and pat dry.
  • In another shallow bowl, combine flour, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt and pepper to taste.
  •  In a shallow bowl, whisk together milk and eggs. 
  • In a bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning.
  • Dredge green beans in flour, dip in egg mixture and then roll in breadcrumb mixture.
  • Dredge the green beans again in flour, dip in egg mixture, and then roll in breadcrumbs, patting down crumbs to fully coat.
  • In a deep, thick-bottomed pan over medium heat, heat about 2-inches oil. Add breaded green beans in batches and cook, turning once or twice, for about 2 to 3 minutes or until golden and crisp. 
  • With a slotted spoon, remove from pan and drain on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Serve hot with ranch dressing.
