Lovely Eggplant

Fried eggplant with freshly grated Parm.

Eggplant, aubergine, whatever you want to call it — I call it heaven. I love it sautéed, roasted, stuffed but most of all, I love it fried. Dinner tonight was homemade pasta (chicken alfredo), some garlic bread and fried eggplant dusted with freshly grated Parmesan. A salad was originally planned but after a quick trip outside with the dogs – anything cold was quickly deleted from the menu.

No recipe to share, per se. Just peel, slice, dredge in flour, egg/cream mix, dredge in flour again then it’s into the pan full of hot oil (toss a bit of egg mix in and see if it pops, if it does, the oil is ready). Brown, flip, brown – then pull them out and salt/cheese ’em while they are still steaming. I put mine on a paper towel covered plate, it seems to help them from becoming too soggy before they hit the table.

Enjoy!
