I thought, this was just what I was looking for as a side dish for baked fish. I read the recipe and knew it wouldn't work. First,you don't have to cook the okra to death, and boiling the bacon in the chicken broth with the okra is why so many found the dish bland. Second, you can cut the time in half by eliminating that whole step. I chopped up 6 slices of thick sliced bacon. Fried it until it was crisp. Removed all but a table spoon of the fat and two table spoons of the bacon bits. I added the onion, salt and pepper until it was soft. I added the rice and stirred it until the rice was opaque. I stirred in the chicken broth and okra. Reduced to a simmer and covered it. When the broth was absorbed, I took it off the heat and stirred in the rest of the bacon. I can't imagine using the extra water. It turned out great, and will be a regular in my house. My 95 year old dad even said "Hey, this is good." Better than that was when he wanted seconds.
