I am a sucker for these at my local TGI Fridays — but hate the hefty price tag with them! When you can get fresh green beans for $0.99/lb or less, it’s hard to pay $6.99+ for less than a pound of them. (sigh)

TGI Fridays Fried Green Beans

Thanks to wasabi ranch dressing and chipotle ranch dressing, you can recreate this gem at home, for pennies on the dollar.

TGI Fridays Fried Green Beans

You will need :

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 pound green beans


Preheat oil to 375 degrees F. (if you oil isn’t hot enough, the beans will be “soggy”).
Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl. Put the buttermilk in a different bowl. Dip green beans into 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 with wasabi ranch dressing. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
