In honor of St. Patrick's Day right around the corner why not Leprechaun Legs!
Fried Leprechaun Legs at that!
I have seen them called this on a menu somewhere before but, really "they" are Fried Green Beans.
You're not gonna get any good luck if you fry up the wee Leprechaun legs now are you! ? !
This is what you will need:
1 Pound of green beans, washed, dried & ends trimmed
1/2 Cup of water
1/2 Cup of milk
2 Cups of seasoned bread crumbs or Panko crumbs
1 Cup of flour
1 Teaspoon of Chili pepper or Cayenne Powder
1 Teaspoon of Garlic powder
1 Teaspoon of Onion Powder
How to make them:
Heat your oil until its ready for frying
In a bowl mix all your wet ingredients
In another bowl mix your dry ingredients
Start by dipping your green beans in your wet ingredients
Then roll them trough the dry ingredients
Carefully drop them into your hot oil
Frying them until they are golden brown & crispy, that takes about 2 minutes.
For dipping you can use a honey mustard or a wasabi dressing.
