Baked Eggplant Fries

March 01, 2012

Fries are just one of those things everyone loves.  I wish I didn’t, I wish anything in the world I didn’t, sometimes I even dream about them.  My favorite meal is probably a salad and fries:)!  Well these are your answer if your pants are a little snug, the eggplant fries really surprised me.  I’ve made many varieties of baked sweet potato and regular fries, and I have to admit many were really good, but they lack the most important detail…CRUNCH.  I can still feel and hear the crunch of  last night’s fries, totally and completely satisfying.

Not only are they delicious, they are also so easy to make.

Baked Eggplant Fries
  • Baby eggplants (count one per person, at least)
  • Egg whites
  • 2 cups Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup whole wheat seasoned bread crumbs
  • ½ -1 tsp. chili powder (or add whatever seasoning you like, I like a little heat)
  1. See below...


Cut ends off eggplants, peel, and cut into french fry like sticks

Put 3-4 egg whites in a medium size bowl.  I just poured about 1/2 cup from a carton of organic egg whites.

In a large Ziploc bag, add panko breadcrumbs, whole wheat breadcrumbs, and chili powder

Take a handful of your cut fries and drench in egg whites, and then simply throw them in the bag, close and shake, shake, shake.  Lay spread out on a greased cookie sheet covered with Reynolds

I always coat with the organic olive oil spray from whole foods.  Spray the top of  your fries before  putting them in the oven.

Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes, until crisp and yummy.  Serve with ketchup, BBQ sauce, or ranch dressing.
