Author's tips : - Using a Deep Fryer is the best way to achieve a perfect browning. - If you are trying to get children to eat this recipe, be sure to choose a firm, fresh eggplant for your recipe or you will end up with mushy eggplant sticks and kids don't like mushy vegetables. - Serve with Marinara Sauce or a Ranch dip for extra flavor
