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
 
Ingredients
  • 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)
Instructions
  1. See below...

METHOD

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
Wrap

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.
