A quick and easy side dish. The crispy fried onions added an extra element to already delicious buttered green beans.

  • 1 c. green beans, washed, trimmed
  • ¼ c. onions, thinly sliced
  • ¼ c. flour
  • 1 c. cooking oil
  • 1 T. unsalted butter
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. Cook the green beans in boiling salted water until tender. Shock in an ice water bath to stop the cooking and reserve.
  2. Soak the onions in ice water for 1 hour.
  3. Heat the oil.
  4. Drain and dry the onion thoroughly.
  5. Combine flour, salt and pepper. Toss the onion until coated. Shake off excess flour.
  6. Deep fry the onion until golden brown and crisp. 
  7. Place the onion in paper towel to remove excess oil. Sprinkle with salt to taste. Set aside.
  8. Melt the butter, add the reserved beans and heat thoroughly. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Serve beans immediately, top with the fried onions.
