I love eggplant. I really really do. I know that not everyone feels this way about eggplant, but it's absolutely delicious. I love finding creative ways to use ingredients I love, so here I found a way to enjoy eggplant in fry form… awesome! I really like a good blend of sweet and spicy, but feel free to get creative and season them how you want. Sweet and Spicy Eggplant Fries
