      A *huge* success at my dinner table! DH loves fried okra and I hate to make it. This made us both happy. Using frozen okra, already sliced, I dumped the whole bag in a colander and rinsed it to separate the pieces. While it was still frozen, I tossed it in the cornmeal, put it on the baking sheet and spritzed it with cooking spray. To avoid drying it out, I upped the temp to 425F and decreased the bake time to 20 minutes. That worked great - it was crispy and browned but still moist inside. I think it could have used a little more seasoning in the coating, garlic powder perhaps, but we were *very* happy with it as it was. I am sure this will become a regular side dish here! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

      This is a great way to prepare okra. You can also soak the okra in buttermilk for 30 min. and then following the recipe. It's great!

      Really good okra,Very low fat yet yummy, DH & I both enjoyed this VERY much. Made it just like the recipe said, I used frozen okra. that we grew in our our garden. used release foil for esy cleanup. Sprayed the foil then sprayed the okra when I put it on the foil, this helps to hold the cornmeal on the okra. Thank you Paula for another yummy recipe.
