Fried Green Beans

This turns a can of green beans into a side dish that is just delish!


  • green beans (fresh is better, but if you can't get them, a can of green beans is fine. I prefer french cut.)
  • Ad
  • butter or margarine
  • garlic powder (not garlic salt)
  • some lemon pepper, and if you like, some Italian seasoning.
  • Nice touches: Sliced almonds, mushrooms, and/or maybe bread crumbs


I put my seasonings in the frying pan before I heat it, to keep the holes from clogging up. Then add the butter or margarine. Simply drain your can of beans and drop them in. Fry until they are a bit crispy and the seasonings have a little crackle to them.

I often add sliced almonds and sometimes some canned mushrooms.

Servings: 1-2

Source: My daughter Sabrina made a fresh green bean casserole for Christmas. It was amazing, as she pre-fried the beans and used half the soup. It was too good to let it go for just the holidays, so I just modified it. Now, I can't eat them any other way! They are so good and quick, too.

If I use frozen beans should they be thawed first? (I don't like canned vegetables.)
