Eggplant has become my new favorite! I just love how it turns out breaded and fried.
We have found young eggplant tastes the best using this recipe.
Slice your eggplant.
Salt your eggplant and stack. By salting your eggplant you are getting the bitter taste out. Let set with salt for about one hour. After that hour, wash the salt off your eggplant.
You will need eggplant, flour, buttermilk and breadcrumbs.
Take your eggplant, dip into flour, buttermilk and breadcrumbs.
Now you are ready to fry. Fry in hot oil. Just enough oil to fry your eggplant.
We have used peanut oil and vegetable oil. We have enjoyed both ways.
Fry until you notice your coating is turning a nice brown. If you like your fried food a bit more crisp, like I do, fry just a bit longer.
 Let cool just a bit, dip into ranch dressing and enjoy!



  1. I did not know salt soak was the secret because everytime I try to make it the taste is too bitter for me. i will try this...thanks for sharing.
