Garden Recipe: Okra Roll-Ups

This appetizer has been a favorite one in my family for years--it's so good and easy to make. Admittedly, it's probably not the most healthy, aside from the okra, but hey, this category has never been "Healthy Garden Recipes!" I do strive to recommend healthy options, but really, my motto is "most things in moderation," so try this one and enjoy it--just don't eat it every day!
