There are two vegetables that are growing in my garden that I don’t really like very much, egg plant and zucchini. They just aren’t my favorite. The hubby planted two regular egg plants, two white egg plants and two zucchini amongst the other garden items. The amount of egg plant and zucchini from these select plants is reaching critical mass. I mean it’s really nuts. So I decided that I would try something with the egg plant instead of schlepping it at my office. Something easy….I decided to make fried egg plant. The original recipe said baked, but I’ll admit, the Southern girl in me just wasn’t ready to give up the ghost on this one….so I fried the egg plant instead. I realize baking is better, but I used olive oil…does that count? Anyway, it came out great and I wanted to share my own spin. I chopped up some of my basil and cilantro and added it to the bread crumbs and that gave it some great flavor. Enjoy.
1 egg plant
