Okra, one of those foods I had growing up. If you cut it into strips, dip it in egg, then in a mixture of breadcrumbs & paprika (and a little salt & pepper), then bake it at 400 for about 15 minutes, you get a delightfully crunchy snack.
Southern Baked “Fried” Okra (on recipe page scroll down to see recipe): = 3 tsp. olive oil for whole recipe, divide by # of servings. May use olive oil-flavored nonstick spray instead. May add Cajun seasoning.
