  • 5 cups sliced fresh okra

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a baking sheet.

  2. Place okra on baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Scatter the bacon evenly on and around the okra. Use 2 baking sheets if you need to. You don't want the okra to be crowded or it will steam more than it will roast.
