  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Whisk together the flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder; set aside. Pour the buttermilk into a shallow dish.
  2. Thread the green beans onto toothpicks, making bundles of about 5 green beans each. Dip the green bean bundles into the buttermilk, then into the flour mixture. Shake off any excess flour. Fry in the hot oil until the flour turns golden brown, about 4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate, and serve hot.

My husband and I have ordered these at different restaurants and loved them, so I tried this recipe. Very good! I used frozen green beans (thawed) from this summers garden and I didn't use the toothpicks. I also added cayenne. I made a dip from mayo, spiced mustard, cayenne, salt, pepper and garlic powder (all to taste). Delicious!

These were very yummy and I'm not much a green bean fan. I didn't have any buttermilk and just used the 1% milk I had in the fridge. I bet they are even better with buttermilk. We will definitely have these again.

These are addictive! A huge hit as an appetizer for Thanksgiving Day to keep hungry kids not so famished as the turkey was cooking. The batter could be improved and would allow for personal preferences of spices.
