Crispy Eggplant Parmesan Fries

Is it just me or is it fun to eat foods shaped like French fries? But hey, if it’s going to be shaped like a French fry, it better have the crunch of a French fry. Good news is, these Crispy Eggplant Parmesan Fries do! They make for a wonderful side dish next to chicken, or can be eaten as an awesome appetizer with some marinara. Regardless how you consume them, they must be consumed immediately in one sitting because if you don’t, you betcha someone else in your house will.

This recipe uses a traditional “assembly line of ingredients” where you dredge something in flour, egg wash and then breadcrumbs. And I’ve found that whatever you dredge in that winning combination has high chances of success…I mean c’mon, how could it go wrong? Well, I actually thought it could go wrong if the eggplant got soggy, but the flour coating totally took care of that!

Ok, so let’s take care of the recipe portion of this post and get you going. It’s quick, simple and deliciously crispy!
