I love okra and enjoy cooking it in different ways. This is one of my favorites, although due to health concerns in my family we don't have it often. But when the craving comes, this is defineately my favorite alternative to plain fried okra! Family loved and approved!!

How to Make Southern Okra Fritters

Step-by-Step
