Awesome recipe to impress that vegetarian friend or to simply enjoy yourself.


  • 2 pounds fresh okra, sliced in 1/8 inch pieces
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 6 packets instant grits
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup oil for frying, or as needed


Combine okra, tomato, and onion in a large bowl. Add the grits, eggs, salt, and pepper and blend together using your hands.

Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Form patties 2 1/2 inches in diameter, about 1/2 the size of a hamburger. Place the fritter in the pan and cook until golden brown, about five minutes. Flip with a spatula and cook until browned on the other side, about five minutes more. Remove and drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.
