recipe: okra fritters

Okra?
Yes please.
Buttermilk?
Need you ask.
Frying?
Sign a sister up.

I'm talking okra fritters people. Ohhhhhh yeah. They're as good as they sound. Yes again my Everyday Food pulls through for me.
Cut your okra, add flour, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Add diced onion. Mix buttermilk, and one egg to the mixture.
Fry those puppies up.
Key tip! Flatten them immediately after you drop them in the oil. We ruined an entire batch by forgeting to do this.
Remove from oil, pat with paper towl, salt to taste, and enjoy!
And I couldn't have the salty without the sweet so I whipped up some cookies (from scratch, without a recipe natch).
Oh yeah, and there was some pork in there but that's not so exciting.
All in all - a great meal night at the M&G household!
Hope you all had a nice Wednesday evening! Happy Thursday!
xoxo

Molly or MCW refuses to eat okras. How can we convince her to give them a try?

Don't judge... I have never had okra. Perhaps I should try this.
