Breaded Okra with Cajun Sauce

I love breaded okra and here is a recipe you can enjoy without feeling guilty. I use whole, frozen okra and they turn out great. Pair it with the Cajun Sauce and you have delightful side dish to served with grilled chicken or Jalapeno sausage. This is a THM S dish.Breaded Fried Okra
