1 1/2 cups Italian bread crumbs
3/4 teaspoonkosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoonfreshly ground black pepper
Dash of garlic salt
1/2 cupfat-free buttermilk
1 large egg, beaten
1 poundfresh okra pods, trimmed and cut into 3/4-inch slices (about 3 cups) Or leave them while for Okra Sticks!
Preheat oven to 450º. Combine bread crumbs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, black pepper, and garlic salt in a shallow dish; set aside.
Combine buttermilk and egg in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add okra; toss to coat. Let stand 3 minutes.
Dredge okra in bread crumb mixture. Place okra on a pan coated with cooking spray. Lightly coat okra with cooking spray. Bake at 450º for 40 minutes, stirring once. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Yum!
