Fried Okra

I've been lured over to the dark side. Of preparing okra that is. I caved and fried the leftover fresh okra and now our house smells like a greasy spoon restaurant. Worth it? Um, yeah, but I'm pretty sure these don't qualify as a vegetable, no matter what any good self-respecting Southerner tells you.
I used this recipe, but I salted and peppered the okra before dipping it into the egg wash.
I also used the combined flours method. For about 1/2 lb of okra, cut into ~1/4" pieces, I only used one beaten egg. Use your best judgment on the amt. of flour, I just used equal parts flour to cornmeal mixed together.
