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! 😉).

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.
