Boy, I can't even explain how much my son loves this! Both of my kids love eggplant and look forward to getting some when we go to a local farm in town.
They always leave saying they grow the best eggplants and can't wait to go home and cook them.
This is such a great appetizer or even lunch. A lot of times we do this for a quick meatless lunch.
1 medium eggplant
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 cup of flour
Slap ya mama cajun seasoning
Marinara for dipping (optional)
Oil for frying (at least about 2 inches in pot or deep frying them is even better)
Get 3 bowls and set up "assembly" line
Put flour in one, eggs in the 2nd, and Italian bread crumbs in the 3rd
Slice up your eggplant
Heat up oil to about 325
Dip the eggplant slices in the flour, then dip in the egg and then dip in the bread crumbs last
Place in hot oil and flip when golden
Be careful with the oil as if it gets too hot the eggplant will burn fast
Sprinkle the slap ya mama seasoning on top when they come out!
