Sprinkled french fried onions add a gorgeous finishing touch to this class green bean casserole dish.

To a Dutch oven, add oil to a 2-inch depth. Preheat oil to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Dip green beans into buttermilk, then dredge wet beans in flour mixture to coat.
Fry beans in oil, in batches, until golden and crisp, approximately 3 to 5 minutes per batch. Remove from oil, drain on paper towels, and serve warm with Zesty Dipping Sauce.
