Oven-Fried Okra ~ Serves 8
Ready in 1-2 hrs

No Southern spread is complete without okra.
This recipe is a bit healthier than the typical deep-fried variety, but no less authentic tasting with buttermilk and a crispy cornmeal crust.
Don't let deep-frying keep you away from okra any longer.

1 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 dash ground red pepper
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 pound fresh okra pods, trimmed and cut into 3/4-inch slices
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Combine cornmeal, 1/2 teaspoon salt, black pepper, and red pepper in a shallow dish; set aside.
Combine buttermilk and egg in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add okra; toss to coat. Let stand 3 minutes.
Dredge okra in cornmeal mixture. Place okra on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Lightly coat okra with cooking spray.
Bake at 450 degrees F for 40 minutes, stirring once. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.
