I used to think fried okra was so gross when I was little and kids in my school cafeteria would eat it dunked in ketchup. That’s because it was fried in grease!
This version is coated in cornmeal and baked – it’s got the best texture!
Okra comes in pods…
…Which you’ll want to cut into bite-sized pieces.
They have a gooey, slimy inside, so don’t worry you got a bad one. It’s great for thickening dishes!
Dip those in a mixture of egg and a splash of milk
And then roll them into some cornmeal (blue or yellow) mixed with salt and any seasonings you like.
Spread onto a baking sheet
And bake at 375* for about 30 minutes, until they start to crisp and brown.
