This recipe for Okra and Potatoes Supreme is a great easy side dish. I love okra and this is one of my favorite ways to prepare it for a meal. I love it for breakfast with a fried egg over the top, too!
1 (12 ounce) bag frozen cut okra or about 1 1/2 cups fresh okra, chopped
5 slices bacon, cooked (save drippings)
1/2 cup chopped regular onion or green onion
6 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
3/4 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 to 1 cup oil (I use the leftover bacon drippings combined with Canola Oil to make one cup)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, Optional
Cook bacon, drain, crumble and set aside. Whisk together cornmeal, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, chili powder and cayenne. Combine okra, onion, potatoes, and green pepper and toss in cornmeal mixture. Heat oil in large skillet and fry okra and potato mixture until browned and potatoes are done. Remove and sprinkle on crumbled bacon with cheese if desired and serve. Makes 6 to 8 servings. Enjoy!
