Sometimes, I go to TGI Friday’s just for the Crispy Green Bean Fries.  Hot and crispy, cooled down with a quick dip in some creamy Cucumber Wasabi Ranch, they make eating your veggies a pleasure instead of a chore.  Even your kids will think so!

Crispy Green Bean Fries Make a Great Party Snack!

While these are easy to make, there are quite a few steps, making it take a while to make these up.  You can, however, make them ahead of time and simply warm them in the oven for your guests.  Crispy Green Bean Fries  will stay crispy and delicious with a 5 minute warm up on a cookie sheet in a 350 degree F oven.  Serve with small ramekins of dip and you are all set for an amazing party!

What Makes Crispy Green Bean Fries Amazing

There’s one simple trick to make these Crispy Green Bean Fries the most amazing thing you’ve ever tasted: simmering the fresh green beans in chicken or vegetable stock for a few minutes before breading them.  Honestly, I thought it would make them mushy, but it infuses them with flavor, making the Crispy Green Bean Fries even better.
