Awesome. I was wondering if they turned out crispy when deep-fried!

Seems to me that deep fried is the best way because they don't shrivel up. I used half a bag of frozen green beans and that gave me a plate full. I was extremely full and think 1/4 of a bag would have been enough. Also, in deep frying, some turned dark and some stayed green but all were crispy. I may make more tonight and if I do I will take pictures.

Yep and I think they tasted a little like fries too. That batch was about 1/4 of a bag and I was nice and full with only the beans and the small hamburger.

I love these but my husband doesn't. I cook mine until they get really brown. I love them with hamburgers. They taste a little like a fry. Let me put it this way. I don't miss the fries with all those carbs. I'll take these anyday.

I had them again tonight with hot wings. The more I eat them the more I like them. I think I will fill my freezer up with green beans.

Just tried this baked green bean idea and love it. Even my daughter who is very slim loves it. Even the dog loves it!
I used frenched green beans as they are quite thin. It took longer than expected.... closer to 2 hours but the results were worth it.
I now keep a baggie of these treats in my purse at work for times when I need to snack. Especially great when I'm doing shakes because I need something to chew LOL

Would these be OK in Atkins induction? Sounds wonderful, but I don't want to mess this up!!

YUMMY!!

After reading several threads on these oven roasted green beans, I'm glad I took a hint from someone else (sorry - can't remember who!) and only cooked a small amount of green beans. OH. MY. GOSH!!! The best thing I have put in my mouth since chocolate!!! I think these are WAY BETTER than french fries - even McDonald's!!

I didn't tell DH what I was making, but then took some outside and offered them to him. He liked them too!!

I used Weber's Steak n Chop seasoning - very good!!

If you have to have an addiction, I guess this is a good one to have!!

I just got finished making some too. They are delicious. I cooked mine for an hour on 275 and they didn't get crispy, but still soft. I loved them. I did use too much oil and salt but not bad for a first try.

Also, tried White Cheddar popcorn seasoning salt on them and they were even better. I wouldn't cook them with salt if using the popcorn seasoning though. YUMMO!

I have Chinese long beans growing.... They are red, and will be up to 18" long when ripe.... That could be cool!

Do fresh green beans work well for this?

I made them with fresh green beans last night, and they were really good! Love the crunch and the unique taste. They really don't taste like regular green beans - more like french fries! I seasoned them with garlic salt, onion powder, and some other spicier stuff that I have. They were yummy!!!

Ugly snack

Baked green beans that look like Scorpion taisl are just in time for Halloween. I can't wait to try baking them. I'm just wondering if using the dehydrator would crisp them up ? Has anyone tried it. I just read the first page of of this thread. I'm looking for more great ideas for low carb crispy things to dip in home made salsa.

thanks Chris

My favorite way to cook green beans. I use the high temp method. 20 minutes in 400 oven tossing half way. I drizzle them with olive oil and my favorite spices before baking.

I never have leftovers of these because I eat them all while I'm cleaning up the kitchen. I also use the high temp method. I toss them a couple times as they cook.

Definite possibilities

Well, after reading all these great posts I tried the micro method because I didn't have an hour tonight to wait for the oven method. Results the first round were a disaster. I burned them to an unhealthy black crisp. Threw in another small batch and kept my eye on them with much better results --- whew! I need to work on the seasoning - but I ate them with great pleasure. Gotta try the oven method next. Thx for all the wonderful ideas.
