Homegrown Spicy Fried Okra!
Susan is back with another great recipe this week: Homegrown Spicy Fried Okra:
I stopped by my mother-in-laws this week and she gave me some freshly picked okra. Some of it was a little big for steaming and I must say that I had a hankering for fried okra. I rarely fry anything.
When my kids were little and I lived on the farm, fried chicken or chicken fried steak was something everyone cooked periodically but not much any more. Too unhealthy! But that doesn’t mean I don’t go BUY fried chicken upon occasion. But I digress – Fried okra! Yummy!
I decided to spice it up a bit….
HOMEGROWN SPICY FRIED OKRA
- 3/4 cup Corn Meal
- 1/2 cup Plain Bread Crumbs
- 3 tsp Tony Chachere
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 2 Eggs
- 1/3 cup Milk
- 1 Ziploc
- Lou Ana’s Pure Coconut Oil (or whatever you like)
Put enough oil into a skillet to at least half way cover the okra. Heat it up on med-high.
In a bowl, mix the eggs and milk and then add the okra.
Mix it so that all the okra is coated with the eggs and milk.
Pour it all into the Ziploc with the corn meal mixture and make sure the okra is now coated with the dry ingredients.
Your oil should be hot now and if it is, pour the okra all into the oil.
Cook until brown on both sides.
When you remove the okra and while it is still hot, sprinkle it with a little more Tony C’s and salt.
And of course, dip it in Frank’s Wing Sauce when you eat it…..of course.
Hi, my name is Susan and Permanent Posies (Creative Chaos) is my blog and my subject matter is…well, that depends on the day and the mood. But, for the most part, I love cooking, watching the Food Network, reading cookbooks and, of course, eating. I am also an artist and spend time each week in my studio (bedroom) oil painting. I am a mother of four and a grandmother to 5 and that, along with my husband and 2 dogs, take up my most of my time. I am a side-tracked Home Executive and I had the privilege of being a stay –at-home mom so, you might say that my passion is the home and making a haven for those I love.
