Default Eggplant Fries

  • Eggplant Fries

I am always looking for a new way to cook eggplant, The family gets eggplant overload after a few eggplant meals so I have been trying to make an extremely easy eggplant recipe that will satisfy even the pickiest of the family.
I have been trying to make fries from eggplant for dipping, you know, whatever, horseradish and ketchup, Buffalo Wing Sauce, Buttermilk Ranch, Outbacks Blooming Onion dip, you get the picture, anyhow I have been working on a method to make some worthy eggplant fries for a quite a while.
It was this past weekend that I had success and the answer was so simple I smacked myself in the head after I tried it..

Cut into fries, "LIGHTLY" salt the Eggplant Fries and place on a cookie sheet lined with a few paper towels.

Place a few paper towels on top, cover with a Pyrex dish or similar and weight the dish.

Give it 30 minutes, remove the paper towels and replace with fresh paper towels, let fries sit another 30 minutes. I actually only did 30 minutes.
Remove the paper towels, wipe excess salt off of the eggplant, and place eggplant fries in flour (I was going to use Zatarans but decide on flour at the last minute, I will try Zatarans next time)

Make sure to work the flour into the eggplant so there are no wet spots showing.

In a skillet add enough oil to cover 1/4 - 1/2 the thickness of the fries, gently cook until golden brown flipping once.

Place fries on a drying Rack with paper towels.

Serve with your favorite dip and Enjoy.

These are really fantastic and my family was quite impressed with them.

These can be salty so taste before salting, also if making a Buffalo wing sauce, try to use an unsalted butter.
You can also add some ranch dressing to the Wing Sauce to cut salt and thicken the sauce up a bit so it adheres to the fries better
