Oh My Gosh, how I miss Southern fried okra. As you all know my dad’s garden has been coming in and he has a ton of okra!

I have fermented okra, frozen okra, canned okra… Somehow saying that makes me think of the movie Forrest Gump! LOL

My daughter loves okra too (maybe more than me). She was so inspired that she wanted to make Okra like her Grandmother makes, but healthier so she actually made Paleo Fried Okra after I had made this Pan-Fried Okra with Bacon. OMG, it was so Yummy! (Post to come soon)

Okra

There are so many health benefits of okra that we all need to include it regularly to our diets. It helps to control blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure, prevents cancer, treats acne, depression, helps with weight loss, improves digestive health & much much more. 

So I saw a post recently on Facebook for pan-fried okra without flour. Really? How can that be? I figured it would be slimy. But I decided to make it anyway.  It had bacon and onions. Yes, you heard me right. Bacon! Well, I was sold immediately & it was so easy & Oh So Delicious! Here is my version of it! It had more ingredients & as always I like to keep it simple!

Ingredients:

  • 1-quart of cut Okra (bite-size pieces)
  • 4 -6 slices of Bacon cut into 1 in. pieces
  • 1/2 c. Chopped Onion
