This is going to be the last of tomatoes and okra for a while. At least fresh! The Alabama girl gave me this delicious recipe. She and I taught together for 3 1/2 years. She is a great teacher and a great cook. I miss her terribly,but that is another story. Anyway, last year we had a potluck dinner and she brought this dish and I am going to share it with you.
I get fresh vegetables from the CSA in our area and had a pound of okra to work with. If you do not have fresh okra frozen will work.

This recipe sounds great. I haven’t really liked okra but I’ll give it a try. Thanks!! 🙂
All my favorite vegetables plus bacon! WOW!
You know, I’ve never known that casserole mix is made out of ritz crackers and bacon grease!
I DIDN’T KNOW YOU CRUSHED RITZ CRACKERS TO PUT IN FOOD AS PART OF THE RECIPE. 🙂
Cheese and crackers sound like a great topping to this dish!! :]
This looks extremely colorful, and colorful food dishes are my favorite! I never would have thought to put bacon grease or okra into a casserole! Looks yummy, i’m gonna have to try this!
this looks really good.
i learned how to saute onions
OMG, this actually looks really good I wish it could’ve been a demo. I’m a huge okra fan and I would never think to add bacon to this but you have. I plan on making this at home day or have my step-daddy make it for me.
