These are tasty little morsels that are very easy and are less clean up than the regular fried eggplant. I love these tossed on a salad. Read More

I'm not a fan of eggplant but was given one by my local CSA and figured this was a way to mask the eggplant flavor. Personally, I liked the breading mixture for it, but it wasn't enough to coat the eggplant taste. Ranch was added as a dip but it wasn't enough for me. My brother really liked them, though; I didn't waste my ingredients or time after all. Will make again only if under the same conditions. Read More
