Years ago, one of my sisters perfected a Southern Okra dish. Prepare this recipe using garden-fresh produce.
Sister’s Southern Okra
4 tablespoons canola oil
1 1/2 cups saltine cracker crumbs
1/4 cup lowfat milk
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
dash of chile powder
2 cups sliced fresh okra (frozen really doesn’t compare)
Mix dry ingredients. Set aside. Lightly beat eggs and milk in shallow dish and set aside. In a frying pan, heat oil. Dredge okra in egg mixture, dried cracker mixture, and again in egg mixture. Place okra in frying pan. Saute until golden. Serve immediately.
