Baking instead of frying?

For diner tonight DH wants me to cook some frozen okra that we have. The only directions on the package are for deep fat frying at 350-375 degrees. Does anyone know if I can bake them instead? If so, what temperature? Thanks in advance!

Approximately 18-20 minutes at 400

 I wouldn't do it. They will come out mushy and stick all over the baking sheet. I tried it once.

yeah breading and frying or adding to soups are the best cuz they are sticky in the center and kinda hard to do anything else with baking would be a mushy sticky mess

 They are meant to be deep fried, that's why the only instructions are for deep frying. You will not be happy with the results if you do try to bake them, they will not be good. It is possible to successfully "bake-fry" okra-using fresh okra and breading it,  but not from a prepared product designed for deep-frying.
