This is good with fried chicken or a slice of ham, or as a light supper or lunch with a tomato salad. Okra, also known as ladies’ fingers, is a taste you grow into, I’ve never known a child who likes them, because of their slimy texture, and I’ve never known an adult who doesn’t! The trick is to pile up the cheese; when it melts it is nice and crisp on top. You could also vary the recipe by using another cheese, such as Red Leicester or Gruyère.
