      Was really surprised at how tasty this was out of the oven. Only had half and half on hand so used that instead of buttermilk. In addition to the ingredients listed I added a bit of garlic powder to the cornmeal. Mixed the meal mixture in a gallon size Ziploc bag. Tossed the okra around until well coated. From there I followed the recipe almost as written except for after baking 20 minutes and then flipping the okra around a bit (found this easier to do by hand) I cooked for 10 more minutes then turned the oven off until ready to serve, about 15 more minutes. They were crispy and delicious.

      As I 'dieting' southerner I've really missed fried okra. Tried this recipe last night and loved it! Highly recommended.

      Great stuff! You won't mistake this for fried okra, but it's definitely good, and made my fried-okra-loving kids very happy. Done at about 32 minutes. Cooking Light is wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
