  • Pour oil into a large iron skillet over medium heat. Coat a handful eggplant slices with the flour mixture. Add to the hot oil; cook until crisp and light brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until other side is browned, 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove slices carefully and move to a plate or cooling rack; cover with paper towels. Repeat with the remaining eggplant slices.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.

To get the breading to stick you need to shake it in flour first then dip it in egg and milk mixture and then breading. The flour and egg mix acts like a glue to hold breading on when frying . Read More

Guess we just aren't eggplant fans. While this was an easy enough recipe none of us were overwhelmed. It was made following the recipe exactly. Read More

This was pretty good but could probably use some improvements. Shredded parm cheese doesn't stick when frying and a lot of the breading fell off. I sprinkled the slices with parm cheese after they were cooked and it was still good. Read More
