Oven Fried Okra

March 2, 2010

Sorry no pics on this one! Fried okra is one of my absolute favorite sides. I love love love it, but realize that yes… it is fried… and yes the fried outweighs the good. So anyway, on my constant search to make my favorite tastes figure friendly, I came up with this oven fried version of a classic. I have tried this many ways and believe me if you want the perfect crunch follow this recipe.

Oven Fried Okra
Fresh Okra ( as much as you want)
1 beaten egg
1 cup corn meal
1 tsp season salt
1 tsp garlic powder
pinch table salt
dash cayene

-Preheat oven to 425
-Cut okra into bite size pieces and place in a bowl.
– in a bag combine cornmeal, garlic powder, salts and cayenne
-Sprinkle flour over okra and toss to coat.
-Dump okra into beaten egg and remove immediately
-Move okra to bag with cormeal mixture and shake it up (shake and bake style!)
– place the pieces on a greased cooking sheet and spray with cooking spray
-bake for 10 min (shaking pan after 6 to turn)

Viola! You have a tasty treat! I like to dip mine in ketchup… yumm!

I will be back soon with DELICIOUS pizza recipe!
