This recipe is amazing! It's the best method that I have ever made okra. The measurements was just the right amount. I fellowed the recipe directions to a tee. The breading actually stayed on the okra and didn't come off like if I had fried in oil. This is a recipe that I most certainly will keep for the future when I want some fried okra. Thanks Seasoned Cook for sharing this delicious and exciting new method for Oven Fried Okra :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash okra and drain. Remove tips and stem ends. Cut okra crosswise into 1/2 inch slices.
  2. Combine egg and buttermilk. Add okra, stirring to coat well. Let stand 10 minutes.
  3. Combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt in a zip-top plastic bag.
  4. Drain okra. With small portions at a time, using a slotted spoon, place okra in bag with cornmeal mixture, shaking gently to coat.
  5. Brush oil on a 15x10x1 inch jellyroll pan; add okra in a single layer.
  6. Coat okra with cooking spray and bake in a 450 degree oven for 8 minutes. Stir well and spray with cooking spray again; baking 8 additional minutes. After last baking, broil 4 inches from heat (with electric oven door partially opened) 5 minutes or until browned, stirring occasionally.
