Updated Aug 5, 2009

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped onion (1 large)
  • 2 cups diced tomatoes (from 28-oz can), undrained
  • 2 cans (15.25 oz each) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 2 1/2 cups frozen cut okra (from 1-lb bag)
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

Steps

  • 1
    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.
  • 2
    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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
