Makes savoury crunchy aubergine strips, perfect for a tasty snack or party nibbles.
After reading the recipe its obvious that people have forgotten the basic of eggplant! Slice and lay the slices out on a rack or paper towel or towel, lightly salt the slices to draw the MOISTURE out (this is what makes it soggy) rinse off after an hour or two, and then pat dry, finish the recipe and the chips will be a whole lot crisper. Learned that when I made Moussaka the first time, and it works with tomatoes for tomato pie. This will make crisper zucchini chips as well. - 21 Aug 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I LOVE Eggplant and this was pretty bad. Sorry, but I don't know what else to say. I followed the recipe exactly as it was written, and still I'd have to say, pretty bland and the texture was unpleasant. - 27 Sep 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe has quickly become a staple of my family's summer diet. We have made it three times in the past two weeks, and plan to make it frequently. We have tried both Japanese eggplant and globe eggplant, and prefer the Japanese. We have also substituted parmesan cheese for the Romano and olive oil instead of plain vegetable oil. This is a great recipe! - 15 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
