Pin this Post on Pinterest Share on Facebook

I just love it when you all share recipes with me! I love checking my email to find a new family favorite that’s probably been passed down through the generations. One such recipe is this one for okra fritters. This recipe came to me from one of our cookbook winners, Julie Taylor. When she received her cookbook, she sent me a thank you note and this delicious recipe. My wife and Mom just loved it! I know you will too!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen okra cut in circles (coarsely)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • oil for frying

Directions

  1. Heat oil in heavy skillet, just enough to cover the bottom of the skillet good. In bowl mix flour, salt and pepper.
  2. Coarsely chop okra.
  3. Add onion and okra toss to coat.
  4. In small bowl mix together egg and buttermilk and add to okra mixture and stir just until combined.
  5. Drop batter in med hot skillet in about 1/4 cup mound and then flatten the okra mound with a spatula and fry until golden brown. Usually takes about 4 to 5 minutes per side, if browning to quickly may need to lower the heat, turn only once.
  6. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with a little salt. Makes about ten fritters. Can dip in a dipping sauce of your choice.

    Well, I can’t wait to try this!!!!!

  2. Oh, That looks soooooooo good.

  3. Glad your wife and mother enjoyed it, How about you?

  4. We went to Cracker Barrel just to get their chicken and dumplings and fried okra yesterday afternoon for dinner. I was so thrilled when I saw this okra recipe in my e-mail this morning. Going to the store to get the ingredients I need and will have this for supper tonight. Oh the pleasures in life that makes us so happy!

    Oh my goodness were these ever good.Fixed today for Sunday lunch- another great recipe for Okra. I did change the receipe just a bit. Instead of using all flour I used 1/4 cup cornmeal and 1/4 cup flour. Hubby really loved these. Yankee friend that said she didn’t like Okra enjoyed these too. Keep the good recipes coming.

  6. This looks good. I will have to try it. I’m thinking it would be good with cornmeal, instead of flour to.

    • I do love corn meal with my okra and have been playing around with it in the recipe. It’s good to leave some flour in there to get the fluffy texture, but the corn meal does add something to it. :-)

  7. Forgive me please. I know I might tread on toes here, but has anyone tried baking these or pan frying them?
    Something without the oil? I love the idea, but fat frying gives me excruciating heartburn.

    • I haven’t personally, but I can see how baking might work. If you give it a try, be sure to come back and let me know how it turns out!

      • And don’t worry about asking questions! We’ve got a pretty good group of folks here that follow the blog. I don’t think they’d get too offended! :-)

  8. More greetings from Montgomery. How did I not know about this site? These look amazing! Can’t wait to try them. I see you have an interesting remoulade recipe on here; might try a little bit of that with these.

  9. I was 5 or 6 and I was having a dream of people I never knew or saw, playing a prank on
    me at a cemetary. Usually the shake weight delivers with a form called it garments going sort undesirable
    fat to get rid of. Glance for: An empire
    night gown with a skirt just begins beneath the bust and flares right into a gradual
    sweep length dress.

  10. Oh my do these look good! :) You had me at “Okra”! That’s all that I needed to see to be interested. I can remember as a child my grandmother and great grandmother making many wonderful southern dishes with okra.

  11. Finally! I recipe that I can use with the only okra I can get here in CA, frozen.

  12. We LOVE Okra! Can you recommend a good recipe for a dipping sauce? Maybe a remolade would be good?
