These simple baked eggplant fries are the perfect snack or appetizer for a crowd. Crispy on the outside, velvety tender on the inside! I love to serve these with a side of 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…
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.
