Gather ingredients (I forgot to the paprika). I'm using a Fry Daddy & two different kinds of breadcrumbs. If you would like to fry in a skillet use 1/2 cup vegetable oil.
Remove stems & tips.
Wisk egg & hot sauce (optional) until well blended.
Soak okra pieces in egg mixture 5-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix breadcrumbs, paprika, salt, pepper, & seasoned salt well. I used 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs & 1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs. Panko gives it a little extra crunch.
Coat soaked okra in breadcrumbs.
I loaded the okra on my fry daddy spoon.
Carefully added to fryer.
Cook for 1-2 minutes...these babies cook FAST!!
Remove from heat & drain on a paper towel.
