I was going to wait and post this tomorrow but I've had to lay down on the couch for a while and think about the fact that at least 3-4 of you left me comments and said you didn't know what okra was???? Oh bless your sweet hearts. Okra is only one of the best vegetables EVER! There are so may things you can do with Okra - pickled okra is a personal favorite. We put that on salads. FRIED OKRA will rock your world. Gumbo wouldn't be the same without okra (tell me you know what gumbo is???).
A while back a ton of people left comments on my recipe blog wanting to know what Rotel is and now Okra. Help me Help you people!! I want to introduce you to the blessings that is southern food!
I got a great deal on steaks at Sam's today so we had a yummy meal. One of my favorite sides is to cut up red potatos and bake them. I love to put a little olive oil on them and mix with onion soup mix or tonight I added garlic salt and parmesan cheese. Oh my it is so good.
I saw this recipe in Southern Living (I am ashamed to admit I let my subscription run out so I was reading it at my mom's) and thought it sounded quick, easy and good. Only I didn't write it down and I forgot really what was in it but I improvised and it was SO good. It gave you the taste of fried okra without all the work.
Just saute sliced okra in olive oil and add some (I'm not one for measurements) Italian bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. I also added Salt and Creole seasoning. SO, SO, SO good!! We will be having this A LOT in the future. It took literally all of 10 minutes to make.
Ya'll have me wondering..............what foods are out there that maybe I don't know about??? Are there things in other parts of the country that are regional that I haven't eaten??? I'm curious now!!
