Hey y'all, Happy Wednesday!!
I can't believe it's only one more day until Christmas!! I'm so excited; I've been making all sorts of different recipes that are perfect to serve at a holiday party; these crispy fried eggplant slices are the perfect appetizer or side dish! They are crispy, cheesy, and full of flavor!
Not only do these fried eggplant slices taste amazing, they require minimal ingredients and are ready within a few minutes!
Onto the recipe!
Crispy Banana Flour Fried Eggplant (makes about 18 fried eggplant slices)
- 1 eggplant, sliced into 1/2 inch slices
- 1 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup wedo banana flour
- 1/2 cup blend of mozzarella, Parmesan and Asiago cheese
- 2 eggs, whisked
- olive oil, to fry
- salt and pepper, to taste
Place breadcrumbs, banana flour, and whisked eggs in separate bowls. Dip eggplants slices in banana flour, then egg, and then coat in breadcrumbs. Once all eggplants are breaded, add enough olive oil to coat a large pan over medium high heat. Once oil is hot, add eggplant slices. Fry for about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove fried slices from pan and place on baking sheet, top with a pinch of cheese, salt, pepper, and place in oven to stay hot, melt cheese, and get extra crispy.
Once all eggplant slices are fried, let cool, and then devour!!! Enjoy!!!
