Corn Breaded and “Fried” Baked Okra

If you think that you don’t like okra, try this!

I was onboard with okra after my first experience last week, but I would bet that Corn Breaded Okra would convince a child that okra isn’t such a bad thing. I bet it would even make my anti-veggie little brother like okra! (What’s up G?)

With that said, if you haven’t already, I think you should just go ahead and try it!
