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.

Baked Eggplant Fries with Greek Tzatziki Sauce


Description

These simple baked eggplant fries are the perfect snack or appetizer. Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside! Delicious with Tzatziki!


Ingredients

Scale

For the Eggplant Fries

For the Greek Tzatziki Sauce (optional)


Instructions

  • 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!

Notes

  • 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.

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

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. I made these tonight and they were so delicious! We served them with marinara sauce. Will definitely make them again! Thank you!

  5. I have these in the oven as we speak. To make fries I just sliced across lengthways into wide 'planks', then sliced again into long 'rods', then sliced those into shorter 'fries'!

  6. For those that are doing macros or keto’s diet , you can substitute the type of flour.
    Very delicious!!!!
    Thank you

  7. Made this recipe for a work function and it was a hit. It also gets my toddler and teenger to eat veggies willingly. I will make it again and again!

  8. Surely the Nutrition list isn't correct. I've never seen anything but water that didn't have some thing that counted nutritionally.

  9. tell me, how do you get fries out of rounds? First I cut 1" rounds, then I cut them into fries? Yours all look about the same size, not possible when cutting out of a round, unless you square them before cutting. Geometry is not variable.

    1. Hi Jay. Thanks for your good question. Mine aren't quite even in size, and what you see in the photo is some of the fries. However, You can trim the round slices down to squares if you want perfectly even batons. Enjoy!

  10. Woooow...
    Hi Suzy
    You sent me a super recipes. I like Mediterranean cuisine, which uses a lot of vegetables. Maybe together as a side dish to meat. Such foods I love. And I always liked to eat there when I was there. I'll try to make these soon! Thanks so much for the great recipes!

    With love Vlada

    1. So glad you're enjoying the e-mails! Thanks for stopping in today! Hope you enjoy these eggplant fries!

  11. I've never been able to handle eggplant, but everything's better breaded and dipped in tzatziki sauce! 😀 It looks delicious!

  12. I love this recipe because the fries could be an appetizer or a side with your meal. And I think using the homemade Tzatziki sauce gives it an extra kick!

  13. Dear Suzy, I love the sound of these eggplant fries...they must be delish with the tzatziki sauce! xo

  14. OH i love eggplant fries. When my kids were younger I'd use this Scnitzel method for as many veggies as I could because my kids would eat anything dressed in egg batter and bread crumbs.. ha ha.. Love this..

  15. I love eggplant and turning them into "fries" is brilliant! I'll have to save this recipe and try it once eggplants are in season.
