"My mother taught me how to make this dish. It is something I have enjoyed my whole life. I really think you will like it. I usually make a remoulade sauce to serve the eggplant with for dipping. Now, of course you can add your own spices but I am going to give you the basic remoulade recipe."

Step 1

Crush up the crackers. I use my hands, then I use the bottom of a glass to mash them more. I do this on a plate. If there are larger crumbs, this is fine, you aren't trying to make them into bread crumbs. Add the bread crumbs and mix. Salt and pepper the mixture.

Step 2

Beat the eggs and add a few drops of water.

Step 3

Slice the eggplant into about 1/4 inch slices.

Step 4

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When oil is ready, dip eggplant slices in egg, then in the crumbs, and place in hot oil.

Step 5

Fry 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. You may have to change the oil during batches, as some of the breadcrumbs will fall off during frying.

Step 6

Drain on paper towels.

As you can see from my pic, I didn't make the remoulade sauce. Lately I've been finding & drawn to recipes from my childhood. Eggplant is something most people love or hate. My Mom raised me to love it & she made it just like your Mom (w/o remoulade). Served w/a new pork tenderloin recipe of my own & a salad, I was a very happy to call my sister in the US & brag about your recipe. Thx for sharing it w/us. :-)
