This is one of those recipes you will use weekly. I’ve made it four times and loved it each time. I even used pickled okra and it was out of this world delicious. No slime at all!! Add hot pepper flakes, sriracha salt, or whatever spices you like. I even used bacon grease once. Just awesome! You can’t go wrong. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

This is very good. I did add some garlic powder just because we love garlic. Next time I will try the temp at 370 as we like it a little crispier. It will be a new regular side dish at our house. We used to make this in the oven but much better in the air fryer. Read More

Breading it like you do in the frying pan 18-20 minutes @ 400 degrees for more than 1 serving. If you are making just 1 serving then check it at 16 minutes. I use just a table spoon of oil for a one pound bag,thaw okra put in a bowl pour oil over okra mix it real good so to cover okra then use about a half cup of cornmeal cover okra good .put in air fryer. Then cook . it will be just as crisp as if you put it in the frying pan,just not with all the oil. Read More

Great alternative to frying or heating the oven (AND the kitchen) to roast! I mixed pickled (rinsed) and fresh okra since I didn't have enough fresh. Although the pickling would be tasted slightly the dish was delicious! I had to air fry longer and higher temperature than suggested. Read More
