Directions:

 

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. 

 

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl toss the eggplant fries with salt and then transfer to a colander and let sit for 15 to 30 minutes to drain any excess moisture.  

 

Step 3

Meanwhile, set up your breading station by stirring together the breadcrumbs, parmesan, paprika, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning in one bowl and melting the unsalted butter in a different bowl. 

 

Step 4

Working in small batches, dip the eggplant fries in the butter and then thoroughly coat in seasoned breadcrumb and transfer to a non-stick or parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes then carefully flip eggplant fries and bake for an additional 7 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Serve immediately.
