      As written, I would give it a four. With a few tweaks though, this is definitely a five-star recipe. We're not able to get ranch dressing mix here, so I just used natilla, which is a cross between creme fraiche and sour cream. I also upped the wasabi (prepared, not powdered) and the horseradish because we like that nasal sting. LOL! We did NOT cook the green beans for 15 minutes, but rather until barely tender, no more than 5 minutes - so that they would hold upright and not wilt over.

      The BIG SECRET though, is in double dipping. I followed instructions for prepping the beans and the first few turned out just ok. A bit ugly. So I took the previously breaded beans (not fried yet), dipped them once again in the egg mixture, then again in the breadcrumbs and VOILA - the perfectly coated and crispy green bean! Very much like I remember those at TGI Fridays. Made for Help a Naked Recipe 2012. Thanks for posting!!!

      Suggestion...costs extra...after initial pre-cooking green means in broth...don't cool in ice water. Make some frozen cubes of chicken broth, put in a bowl with liquid broth...NOW cool the broth-cooked beans in cool broth. Flavor remains intense!
