Green Bean Parmesan Fritters
8 ounces frozen French-style sliced green beans, thawed and drained
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Vegetable oil, for frying
Place a large skillet over medium heat and pour the vegetable oil into the skillet until there is ½-inch of oil. Allow the oil to heat up.
In a medium bowl, stir together the green beans, egg, flour, Parmesan cheese, garlic, water, salt, and pepper. The mixture will not be very runny, but it will be spreadable.
Once the oil is hot, scoop a large round of the green bean mixture into the hot oil. If your pan is large enough, you should be able to fit 3-4 fritters in your pan at the same time. Fry the fritters until they are browned on each side.
Once fully cooked, carefully remove each fritter from the pan and place on a plate lined with a paper towel. Sprinkle each fritter with salt immediately after removing from the oil.
Continue frying the fritters until you have run out of batter. Serve warm.
Note: These are best made right before serving. If you would like to make them ahead of time, you can just heat them up in the oven before serving. Just make sure they get crispy.
