FRIED OKRA ALA MARY SUDDUTH

1 to 2 quarts of okra, sliced in about 3/4″ thick disks
1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 tsp each sea salt & garlic powder
1 tsp each pepper & oregano
3 eggs, well beaten
Enough olive oil to fill 1 to 2″ in your frying pan

Slice okra. Begin heating oil over medium heat while preparing other ingredients.

Blend all dry ingredients in pie plate or similar dish with a fork until mixed well.

Dredge okra slices in egg, then in flour mix forming a batter on the okra pieces.

Place okra in pan gently in a single layer to keep from burning yourself. When brown on bottom, use a spatula or slotted spoon to gently turn the okra. When brown on other side, remove from oil and place on a plate covered with paper towels.

For each additional amount you need to fry, you may need to add oil, remove excess batter, and/or lower heat. Enjoy!
