Cracker Barrel Style Fried Okra

Cracker Barrel Style Fried Okra

There's one way to get my kids to eat vegetables and that's to fry it! Cracker Barrel Style Fried Okra is a great copy-cat, easy vegetable recipe that is just like the one you can get at the restaurant, but made in the comfort of your own home.


  • 1 pound tender okra
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/3 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup bacon drippings, oil, or shortening


  1. Wash the okra well and cut off the ends.
  2. Slice okra into 1/4-inch rounds.
  3. Combine the salt, pepper, and cornmeal. Toss the okra into the cornmeal mixture.
  4. Heat the bacon drippings, oil, or shortening in a large skillet. Add okra slices and saute until they are tender and golden.
