MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 25, 2012

"Nice combination but not much of a flavor-punch. Okra was not as spicy as I had hoped and the bacon did little for the dish. Next time I would probably roast the okra first then actually add some of the bacon drippings to the mix. Also, increase the seasoning (salt and pepper), it was tasty but really could use more kick!"
