On Sunday I had gotten a very beautiful eggplant from the lovely lake Eola farmers market in downtown Orlando. I hadn’t gotten a chance to use it yet, but I had been promising Keely I would make her eggplant for the first time, and I delivered. I did a very simple fried eggplant.
1 1/2 cups flour
Salt & pepper to taste
Mix the flour, a pinch of salt and pepper and a tsp of garlic powder in a dish suitable for dipping the eggplant. Crack the eggs scramble and put in a bowl. I like to double dip my batter so it gets a nice thick crust because who likes soggy eggplant.
Once they were done to a nice crisp I lightly salted them because I wasn’t using cheese or sauce and just eating them plain. They were a hit amongst the family well except for my significant other Chas who isn’t a fan of the texture of eggplant. More eggplant for me! and Keely of course.
