Plate with crispy, baked eggplant fries served with Greek Tzatziki Sauce

Eggplants are a cherished Mediterranean ingredient. Here on the blog, you'll find them prepared a variety of ways: layered in a hearty Greek Moussaka; stuffed with meat and bulgur; or simply roasted and adorned with pomegranates and tahini...

Eggplant fries with Greek tzatziki sauce make the perfect Mezze (appetizer) for a crowd. And they are easy to prepare.

Ready to eat eggplant fries, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside

Eggplants are easy enough to turn into the perfect fries.

In this recipe, eggplant batons take on a simple seasoned breading and quickly softens in the oven, resulting in the perfect eggplant fries--crisp on the outside, and velvety, tender on the inside. Simply addictive!

For a little side dip, I like to use Greek tzatziki sauce. But you can also simply use a store-bought dip of your choice like marinara or a light ranch.

For the Eggplant Fries

For the Greek Tzatziki Sauce (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • First, cut the eggplant into 1-inch rounds. Sprinkle with salt and set aside for 20 minutes (the eggplant will sweat out any bitterness). Pat dry.  Now cut the eggplant slices into even-sized batons or "fries."
  • Dredge the eggplant fries into the flour. Next, dip them in the eggs, then coat them with a mixture of the breadcrumbs, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper.
  • Prepare a wire rack on top of a baking sheet. Spray the wire rack with olive oil cooking spray. Now arrange the eggplant fries on top of the wire rack. Spray the eggplant fries with a little olive oil cooking spray.
  • Bake in the preheated 425 degrees F oven for 10 minutes or until the eggplant fries are golden and crisp.
  • Make the Greek Tzatziki Sauce according to this recipe.
  • Serve the eggplant fries hot or warm with the Tzatziki sauce or a side of marinara. Enjoy!


  • Make ahead note: You can prepare the Greek Tzatziki Sauce a day in advance, if you like. Simply store in an airtight container in the fridge. Before serving, give it a quick stir to refresh.

    After growing eggplants in my garden this year and getting bumper crop, I needed different recipes for eggplant. I found this recipe and made them. After tasting them I knew this was a keeper recipe. This is so much easier [and healthier] then deep frying eggplant. We love them and have made this recipe so many times over the summer.

    1. TMD Team says:

      Hi, Alice! I'm Summer and I work here at The Mediterranean Dish. I'm a gardener too so I totally understand the having to figure out what to do with a bumper crop. I'm glad you liked the Baked Eggplant Fries Recipe. We have a ton of Eggplant recipes on the site if you need some more inspiration. This Eggplant Parmesan Sandwich and Braised Chicken with Eggplant are two of my favorites.

  2. Donna says:

    Is there a way to convert the oven bake temp/time to an air fryer?

    1. TMD Team says:

      Hi, Donna. I'm sure this recipe can be cooked in an air-fryer. We've never tested it this way, though, so unfortunately I don't have specific setting recommendations for you. Your best bet would be to take a look at your air-fryers instruction/recipe book for guidance. If you give it a try, we'd love to hear any suggestions/feedback you have.

  3. Michael says:

    I baked the fries but I felt like the eggplant disappeared from inside. Did I bake too long? Or was the eggplant fries I cut too thin possibly (1/2”)?

  4. Snook the Cook says:

    I'm anxious to try this recipe THIS EVENING 😃

    1. Suzy says:

      Hope you loved it!!

  5. Ams says:

    I made these for dinner and absolutely loved them. Except, I kept them in the oven for 18-20 minutes.
    There is an eggplant hater in the house who you converted to an eggplant fries lover. I made an Asiago & sun dried tomato tapenade as a topping. Really good! Thank you.

    1. Suzy says:

      Yay!! Thanks, Ams!

  6. Anna Labounskaia says:

    Planning on making these tonight!

    Do I need to peel the eggplant for this recipe?

    1. Suzy says:

      Hi, Anna! You do not need to peel the eggplant.

  7. Robin Sherman says:

    Really easy and yummy! I chose your recipe because it didn't look complicated. I sorinked parmesan cheese when finished baking and dipped them in Rocky Rocco pizza sauce. A keeper recipe!

    1. Suzy says:

      Awesome! Thanks, Robin!

  8. Karl says:

    Interested in making these but I don’t have a wire rack to put the fries on. Is it really necessary?

    1. Suzy says:

      Hi, Karl! The wire rack helps to elevate the fries above the moisture. The recipe would probably work without it, although they might not be as crisp.

  9. Staci Block says:

    Love your recipes! Is white vinegar the same things as distilled white vinegar? Thanks....

    1. Suzy says:

      Hi, Staci! They are a little different. White vinegar is a bit stronger than distilled vinegar, although both can be used for cooking.

  10. Doreen says:

    This was quick and easy , and it hit the guilt free indulgence. I recommended seasoning the breading really well because that is where the eggplant will get it’s flavor. I liked serving with marinara sauce.

    1. Suzy says:

      Thanks for sharing that tip, Doreen!

  11. Best Guy says:

    This was tasty, but it was a pain to make due to the amount of fries there is to "bread". My eggplant was big 😉 and larger than what you called for so it probably made more fries than your dish. It would probably be just as good just breading the rounds to decrease the time or just roast the fries without breading. I made a cilantro lime yogurt sauce to go with this.

  12. Kelly Stilwell says:

    I made these tonight and they were so delicious! I doubled the batch so we have leftovers that I'll pop in the oven tomorrow. Yum!

    1. Suzy says:

      Perfect! So glad you enjoyed them!
