Eggplant Fries

What is purple and is called both an animal product and a living organism that grows in the earth? Eggplant isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but the people who eat eggplant seem to love it. When I first heard of eggplant fries, I knew I had to try making it because I’m one of those people. My husband does not like it (so more for me! ūüėČ).

Eggplant fries were pretty easy to make and tasty to eat. My husband even had some and he usually refuses to eat eggplant at all. I hope you enjoy it and maybe those of you who don’t like eggplant will like it after trying this recipe.
