My foodie friend Jenni from Ferris Wheel Of made TGI Friday's (Copy Cat) Green Bean Fries the other day. She's a St. Louis foodie and she's also a Connie's produce delivery addict like myself. It's so much fun finding out what she's making with the week's delivery!
Last weeks delivery had a small bag of fresh organic green beans. I still had my bag in the fridge. Wondering what I was going to create with them Jenni posted on her facebook fan page that she was going to make TGI Friday's Green Bean Fries.
I have never tried their Green Bean Fries and I can't stand the thought of taking a perfectly healthy vegetable that is outstanding steamed with a sprinkle of salt and pepper and frying it up!
Oh, but her Green Bean Fries looked so scrumptious! Not to mention the Wasabi Ranch Dip she made to dip the fried up little suckers into! Get out! If she had been standing in front of me I'm sure I would have pulled an Elaine (Seinfeld fans give me a WOOT!) and pushed her down!
The addictive little suckers were going to accommodate our grilled hamburgers made by my awesome future foodie son, Luke!
Jenni warned me that they were addictive and she wasn't exaggerating even a little bit!
I made just a few changes from the original. I used Panko in place of breadcrumbs and coconut oil in place of canola oil.
Jenni says her version tastes the same and maybe even better than the restaurant version. I wouldn't know but I do know these will be making an appearance on our dinner table again!
Have you tried TGI Friday's Green Bean Fries?
