When you think about the ultimate American food what enters your mind?
Do you think of steak? Hot dogs? Pizza?
Well I think of hamburgers. There are many recipes for various burgers floating around. Some made with beef, lamb, chicken. But I must admit I am dying to try some of those that are made with beans!
However, in order to convince the husbster to try a bean burger, I would have to sedate him first…lol!
But I do know a thing or two about the perfect side item to a hamburger…Fries!
You see I have made sweet potato fries, home fries, even squash fries.
But these beauties are by far my favorite!
- okra pods, tops removed, halved
- olive oil
- salt & pepper
- cajun seasoning
- Preheat oven to 450
- Place okra pods onto baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil
- Sprinkle seasonings onto okra, stir to coat well
- Bake for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally
So run to your local farmer’s market and grab up some okra. Go on this minute. Don’t worry I will wait for you….
You will fall in love with these wonderful fries as much as I have. No condiment is needed, but if you choose they are wonderful dipped in a little ketchup 🙂
