Southern Fried Okra

1 pkg. frozen cut okra (don't thaw completely)
1 egg
1/2 c. milk
salt and pepper to taste
1 c. flour
1 c. cornmeal mix

Turn deep fryer on first so oil will be hot when needed. Mix cornmeal mix and flour together in a Ziploc bag. Place partly thawed okra, egg, milk, salt and pepper into a bowl and toss until thoroughly coated. When oil is real hot, spoon 1/2 of the coated okra into the Ziploc bag of cornmeal and flour and shake. Put the breaded okra in deep fryer and cook until golden brown.

Fresh okra can be used as well. I cut the okra into 1/4 inch slices. I use a basket in the deep fryer so it is easy to take out. Then deep fry the other half of breaded okra the same way.
