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.

Note:
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.
