Personal Notes:
I put one serving because I could easily eat the whole pound. This dish was often on the table at the Holland's or Weese's. I have often grown my own Okra and put some up in the freezer already dredged in the coating to make it fast and easy. This is one of the best Southern comfort foods!!
