This is so easy to make, and it tastes so good. For a change up, add Cajun seasonings instead of the cayenne. I serve with Tabasco on the side.

As I am an okra hater and we ended up with a bunch of it that I refused to waste I was happy to use your yummy recipe. The only change I will make is that I will only use 2 T of olive oil as it was too greasy for me. I did use the Cajun Seasoning and blue corn tortilla chips, which were wonderful. Thanks for posting this alternative to breaded and fried okra :)

Wow - it's really delicious and so simple. I will definitely make it again and again. The only thing I did differently was to use blue corn tortilla chips instead of crackers as that was all I had on hand. I highly recommend trying it!

This was yummy and perfect for lo-carb dieters, which is what I am. It was so different from the usual fried okra. A nice change. I did not use the pepper (was out) and I used cornflakes instead of crackers.
