"In the South, okra is every where. I threw together this recipe when trying to come up with something different. When I make this for the kids, I leave out the tomatoes and onion."

  1. Combine okra, tomato, and onion in a large bowl. Add the grits, eggs, salt, and pepper and blend together using your hands.
  2. Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Form patties 2 1/2 inches in diameter, about 1/2 the size of a hamburger. Place the fritter in the pan and cook until golden brown, about five minutes. Flip with a spatula and cook until browned on the other side, about five minutes more. Remove and drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.

Different and if you love okra a wonderful something different.

I just made this tonight using the okra, tomatoe, and onion from my CSA. It was delicious :). After reading other reviews, I added 3 eggs instead of 2. My fritters did not fall apart and were...

This is the first time I ate okra, let alone cook it.It is a strange vegetable. The skin is tough and stringy. However, surprisingly this recipe turned out pretty tasty

OK, I tried to make these....even after reading the comments and found all of the comments about too much okra and too dry to be TRUE. However with okra that needed used I proceeded to see if I...

This didn't go well for me. Disclaimer: I didn't use tomatoes or onions because nobody else in my family likes them. I think the biggest problem was the amount of okra. 2 lbs seems like WAY too ...
