Eggplant is a close cousin of the potato. Obviously that makes becoming fries a sort of family fairy-tale for eggplants. Surprisingly, eggplant is very easy to turn into fries just like it's legendary cousin potato. The eggplant chips take on the panko crumb easily and turn very crispy on the outside and creamy & tender on the inside.
