"This is a great side dish that I learned about while teaching English in China. It goes well as a side dish with seafood, burgers, barbecued meats or almost anything!"

Bland, but much better with extra salt, pepper & garlic powder added to flour mixture. I had extra zucchini so "french fried" it as well; it turned out FAR SUPERIOR to the eggplant. The zuccin...

Pretty messy to make, tasted pretty good but bland and not worth all the effort in my opinion. Maybe would be better with some spices added to the cornmeal/flour coating.

much better with italian bread crumbs with parm cheese added....and since they get more of an italian twist this way try dippin them in a maranara sauce!!! let me know what u think!!!
