Fried Okra

6 T Cornmeal
2 T Flour
Salt/Black Pepper to taste

Mix these dry ingredients together.

1 Egg(beaten)
1/2 cup to 1 cup Milk or Buttermilk (enough to make a loose mixture when the dries are combined with the wets)
2 T Olive Oil (plus more for frying)
1 small Onion (chopped very fine, 1/4″ dice)
2 cloves Garlic (chopped very fine)
1 cup Okra (chopped in 1/4″ thick pieces)

Mix the Egg, Milk and Olive Oil together. Add the Onion,Garlic and Okra. Stir to coat the vegetables.

Add the dries to the wets. Combine to make a loose “pancake batter,” adding more milk if needed. Heat additional Olive Oil in a big skillet over medium heat. Drop by spoonfuls to make 4″ sized circles,like pancakes. Brown the fritters on the bottom, then flip over to brown the top.
