Fried Green Beans

Some where along the way we were told that fried food was bad for you.  But the dirty little secret is that we all love it!  And who wouldn’t?  Crispy, greasy, tasty little morsels dipped in all kinds of crazy sauces and condiments.  I don’t know what I like more; the fried food or the condiments.  My husband calls me the Condiment Queen and I have a refrigerator to back it up!  This recipe mixes the forbidden fried coating with something a little bit healthy; green beans.  How bad can that be for you? Right?  And dipped in horseradish sauce – oh wow…. taste buds are watering!
