Simple Delicious Okra Casserole

"3 ingredients come together quickly, then just pop it in the oven and relax or prepare the rest of your meal! Tomatoes take the"slippery" out of the okra. This came from my favorite OklahoMAN's mom. I think it's one of those tasty "Everybody Cooks It" recipes from the mid-west."

  1. This was fantastic! We love okra anyway we can eat it. This was very easy to make and you can spice it up anyway you like! DH says not to lose this recipe! Thanks!!
  2. I made this for a lady that I take care of on the weekends. She loves okra and had a recipe that had okra and tomatoes but had lost the recipe. She was so excited when I made this and she loved it. I added garlic powder in between each layer in addition to the salt and pepper. Thanks for posting
  3. I loved it. My hubby raved about it and has told everyone he ran into. Plus its a great way to use up extra okra without having to fry it so long.
  4. OK but a bit boring. I had to add a bit of water to mine so it didn't dry out too much but that would just depend on the tomatoes used I suppose. Better the next day but I would add a lot more to this if I made it again (garlic, spices or herbs, olive oil?...) and I really like okra simply microwaved till tender then dipped in soy sauce. Thanks for the recipe anyway - at least I tried something different.
  5. I'm a Tennessee girl and grew up on okra. I love fried okra, but not boiled okra. This was not slimy at all, and it had a great flavor. In my oven, it did just fine at 45 minutes. I only broiled it for a couple of minutes. Since you said to be creative with seasonings, etc., I added a tiny bit of summer savory. It was really yummy. Thanks.


I live in the California desert with my husband and (2)Golden Retriever mixes. My favorite cookbook is my trusty Betty Crocker cookbook and there are stains on it to prove it. I've had my Betty Crocker cookbook for 25 years! Between that and watching my mom cook (she is excellent, by the way) from the time my nose was as high as our kitchen counter, I've become a pretty good cook. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes. 'Zaar has been such fun to do that with! Luckily, my husband doesn't seem to mind being the guinea pig! When we have the chance, we spend weekends camping at the Colorado River in AZ. If I had an entire month off with no worries about the next buck, I'd spend time with my family in No. California and time with my husband. Anyplace he's at would be allright with me!
