“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.”

Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  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.

This was such a big hit! I added a little bit of bacon grease. And I also precooked my onions and okra, just to soften it up a bit. My family demands that I make this again and again and again... UPDATE: I made these again last weekend with http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Grandpas-Tomato-Gravy/Detail.aspx , and it was a match made in heaven.

Hi Tiger: Sorry, I have not had time to try this recipe yet! Being from So.Georgia myself, I like okra prepared any way I can find it. I think this recipe is going to be wonderful. I will come back when I've tried it and update. Best wishes, Larry

I have no idea what happened, but these were a failure. They fell apart while frying, but on the plus side, I love the incorporation of tomato in this. I've made variations of fritters before, but never with tomato. I might try this again sometime, thanks.
