Recipe Notes

To keep your dipping bowls clean, designate one hand as your "wet" hand and one hand as your "dry" hand. Use the dry hand to dip into the flour, switch to the wet hand to dip in the eggs, then switch back to your dry hand to dip in the breadcrumb mixture. 


To ensure perfectly crispy "fries" make sure green beans lay in an even layer and do not stack beans on top of each other.
