Fried Okra is a staple around Thanksgiving time, and whenever we get a pile of people together at once this is a go to recipe. The best part is that unlike most fried foods, fried okra is just as good as a leftover.
- 1 lb package of frozen Okra or fresh if in season
- Butter Milk or Whole Milk with a beaten egg
- 1 Egg
- Good Peanut Oil (it should be dark yellow and smell like Peanuts)
- 3 cups Bisquick
- 1 Cup Corn Meal
- 1T Garlic Powder
- 1T Onion Powder
- 1t Black Pepper
- Beat the egg into 2 cups milk.
- Pout the Milk/Egg mixture over the Okra and add more milk until the Okra is barely covered
- Soak the okra in milk for at least an hour.
- Strain the Okra and set aside.
- Get a large bowl and put in Bisquick, corn meal, garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper and mix with a fork until blended.
- Put the Okra into the flour mixture and mix around until all pieces are completely covered.
- Put the whole bowl into the fridge and let it sit for at least 4 hours but 8 is better. NOTE: If you skip this last step your breading will fall off during the cooking process.
- Fry until golden brown.
