Eggplant Fries

On Friday we eat fries…and fries we will eat!

Today while I was in my spin class, the instructor asked me what kind of fries will I be posting today to ring in the weekend? I realized in that moment that I hadn’t planned for this week and spent the next few minutes thinking about what was in my fridge that I could turn into fries. While the recipe is a concoction I created randomly, it’s a delish way to utilize eggplant and came out perfectly. Happy FRY-day!
