Anytime I create something, I’m constantly thinking about ways to change it, tweak it, make it better.  I think it’s just the nature of a creative brain.  So, recipes are always swirling around in my head.  I find inspiration everywhere.  It’s almost a curse.

Back in 2011, a sweet reader named Julie Taylor sent me a recipe for okra fritters.  My family and I fell in love. And, of course, I went to tweaking.  One version ended up in my cookbook.  Today I’m sharing my newest version.  And dare I say it… it might be my favorite.

I’ve taken these crispy, delicious morsels and kicked them up a notch.  Imagine the best of fried okra and fried green tomatoes in one bite.  Simply amazing.

I can see these sprinkled with some cajun seasoning or dipped in some comeback sauce for even more flavor.  You know, if that’s your thing.  Which it should be your thing.  That’s why you’re hear, right?

Anyway.  Y’all enjoy!

  1. They look delicious and i do these with diced onions. They have the same taste and crunch as onion rings with much less fussing ang and prep time. I also use comeback sauce as a dip as it counteracts the ” heaviness ” of fried foods.

    Those would be great dipped in a little remoulade! Or maybe even ranch dressing. I’m definitely going to be trying this!

  3. Can I use frozen okra?

  4. Stacey,
