3 slice(s) uncooked reduced-fat bacon
1 spray(s) cooking spray
1 small uncooked onion(s), chopped
1 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), minced
2 cup(s) frozen corn kernels
8 oz okra, sliced (about 2 cups)
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, or less to taste*
1/4 tsp dried oregano, crushed
1/2 tsp table salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 cup(s) grape tomatoes, or cherry tomatoes, halved

Brown bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, flipping several times, about 5 to 7 minutes; remove bacon and set aside.
Coat same skillet with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until onion is tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add corn, okra, cayenne, oregano, salt and pepper; cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes; cook until tomatoes are pulpy, about 2 to 4 minutes. Crumble bacon over skillet and serve. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.
My mother used to make a very similar dish. She called it "Okra Succotash". It was delicious. I will have to try this. Thank you for sharing it.
