    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    My husband loves fried okra, so he was pleased with this low-fat version.I sometimes substitute corn meal for the bread crumbs. Originally from the food section of the Houston Chronicle.

      Changes I made: parboiled okra for 3 minutes, used panko bread crumbs...when putting okra in pan added some of panko that did not stick (makes great crumbles!) and cooked at 450 for about 17 min (could be my toaster oven). MUCH better than fried!

      Woohoo! I LOVE fried okra but never eat it--now I feel good about having it whenever I want! The flavor of the breading is just right, though I might add a little more pepper next time. I also used corn meal instead of breadcrumbs...guess it's a southern thing but it doesn't get much better than cornmeal and black pepper LOL. DH liked his with ketchup (weirdo ;)). Thanks so much for posting! Made for Healthy Choices 2008.

      Excelent Okra recipe! You certainly won't miss the deep frying and will never bother with deep frying again, as these came out perfectly. Great recipe, Leslie in Texas.
