Love these! I also mixed up the green beans with some asparagus spears, and let me tell you ... HEAVEN! I used some chipotle ranch dressing as a dip, and they were gone just as fast as I could get them out of the fryer. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Saw this show and had some fresh green beans from the local farmer's market and thought I would give it a try - absolutely delicious!! I did add 1/4 cup cornstarch and only 3/4 cup flour and let the batter sit for about 20-30 min to thicken a bit - it will stick better to teh beans. Great recipe that will definately make another appearance : item not reviewed by moderator and published
