From Betty's Soul Food Collection... Almost too pretty to eat, this recipe is seasoned with bacon, hot pepper sauce, onions and garlic—creating a beautiful dish for family gatherings large or small.
cup coarsely chopped onion (1 large)
cups diced tomatoes (from 28-oz can), undrained
cans (15.25 oz each) Green Giant™ whole kernel corn, drained
cups frozen cut okra (from 1-lb bag)
teaspoon seasoned salt
teaspoon garlic powder
teaspoon hot pepper sauce
In 12-inch skillet, cook bacon over low heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon; set aside. Reserve 1 tablespoon bacon drippings in skillet.
Cook onion in bacon drippings over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir in remaining ingredients except bacon. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until okra is tender. Sprinkle with bacon.
Slash a little fat by trying turkey bacon. It has the same smoky flavor as pork bacon but much less fat. One slice of regular bacon weighs in at about 6 grams of fat per slice versus turkey bacon at roughly 1/2 gram of fat per slice.
