"The Cajuns have a "Holy Trinity" of cooking which consists of celery, onion, and bell peppers. Texas White Trash (which I come from a long and distinguished line of)have our own Holy Trinity of cooking consisting of potatoes, onions, and okra. My family has been making this for years and I remember eating it while I was still strapped in a booster chair. If you love fried potatoes- if you love okra- and if you love onions- you will love this dish for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. May be served with ketchup but if you want real authentic White Trash fare- serve smothered in creamy white gravy! You can get me to do some rather unpleasant things if you wave a plate of this at me."

"This was tasty potato dish that reminded me of the potatoes my dad used to make. He didn't use okra though, as we only just recently started getting okra in stores in Chicago. I've gotten addicted to okra, so I think next time I might even double the amount. I also didn't use any gravy or ketchup, as it's flavorful enough as is. Thanks for sharing."
"LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this! We've fixed fried taters & onions for years but I never thought about adding okra. Served this with fried pork chops and made cream gravy from the drippings. Oh Potsie...what have you done?? :)"
"This was actually pretty good, and I don't even like okra! I made up for that by adding another onion to the mix, and also adding some coarse-ground Hungarian paprika. I have to put paprika in everything. We actually had this for breakfast, with crusty rolls, lots of sweet butter and spicy matbucha (a Middle Eastern salsa). Thanks for the cross-cultural experience, Potts!"
