Oh, My Gosh Annie, These are so delicious and easy to make. DH loved them. I made half a recipe as there is only 2 of us, we really pigged out. I can hardley wait to make them for the rest of the family. Thank you SOOooo very much for posting this recipe.
Wow, simply delish! I have never made fried okra from scratch before! No more store bought in this house! I put in a little bacon grease in the egg mixture for added flavor. Also, I didn't chop my okra fine.
I had about a pound of fresh okra, and wanted to try something other than regular fried okra. The mincing by hand was a bit tedious, but really managed the "slime factor". I enjoyed these little patties. As an experiment, I may try it without the baking powder next time, to see if I get more of the crispy fried okra texture throughout rather than a bread/cake texture in the middle. Thanks Miss Annie.
made this recipe with frozen okra. Added 1/4 cup flour with corn meal and 3/4 cup cornmeal. Added garlic(1/4 tsp) Also baked them at 350 degrees in the oven on a greased baking tray for 1.5 hr(until they were brown being careful not to burn them). Used olive oil cooking spray . These turned out really nice...had them with some hot sauce and the kids had with ketchup. Thanks for the recipe
These little gems are wonderful. I didn't use bacon grease, but I fried them up like little hushpuppies. My family loved them. I can't wait to try with the bacon grease. DH suggested next time adding some chopped jalapeno in them for a bit of heat, gonna try that next time. Thank you for sharing this great little side dish with so many possabilities.
Excellent! I realized half way through that I didn't have cornmeal so I used premade corn bread mix which has sugar in it. They were a bit on the sweet side but otherwise just delicious. I can't wait to make them again!
Oh, and mine were perfectly moist and needed no accompaniment. Maybe it was the mix?
These were great! Easier than fried okra but with similar results... I used a few garlic cloves instead of onion, and added a bit of cayenne pepper, and I thought these were really satisfying. I thought they were nice and moist, although I agree with adventurousbeginner's suggestion: these would be awesome with a remoulade.
These are good, but somewhat of a waste of good okra. I'd rather a dish that really brings out the delicate okra tastes and textures.
I found the okra patties a bit dry. . . I made a quick remoulade and that fixed the issue. Overall, though, quite good!
Yum! Enough said.
