Okra Fritters

Today, after months of eating okra in every imaginable fashion, I have invented a GREAT okra fritter recipe.

Ingredients

2 cup sliced okra

1/2 small yellow onion, diced

1/2 cup flour

1/2 t salt

1/4 t pepper

1/4 t cayenne pepper (more if you like spicy)

1 lg egg

1/4 c buttermilk

vegetable oil

In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper.  Add okra and onion and toss to coat.  In a small bowl, whisk together egg and buttermilk.  Add egg mixture to okra mixture and stir until combined.

Heat oil in a large skillet.  Drop 2 Tablespoonful mounds of batter into oil.  Fry until golden, flipping once.  Drain fritters on rack over paper towels.

Makes about 12 fritters.
