QUICK AND EASY OKRA PILAU

3 slices bacon
2 cups chopped sweet onion
1 pkg (1 lb) frozen sliced okra, thawed
2 pkgs (8 1/2-oz each) ready-to-serve Cajun-style rice

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon approximately 5 minutes or until crisp.  Remove bacon from skillet and drain on paper towels.  Reserve 2 tablespoons of the drippings in the skillet.  Once bacon is cooled enough to handle, crumble; set aside.

Saute the onion and thawed okra in the reserved drippings over medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes until tender.

Prepare the rice according to the package directions.  Stir the rice and bacon into the okra mixture in the skillet.

Serve while hot.

Yield: 6 servings
