I have used eggplant either way, with the peel on or with it peeled. If it is a nice, fresh, smaller eggplant, leave the peel on. If it is an older or really large eggplant, the skin may be a little tough. Best wishes and enjoy that eggplant!

We like fried. Peel on washed well. Cut in 1/4 inch slices and set them on paper towels to dry them.
Simple what I do. Heat a large skillet with 14 cup oil like you would for french fries. Beat 3 whole eggs in a bowl and set aside. Dredge the slices in dry pancake mix, dip in eggs and coat with more of the pancake flower and then pan fry until golden brown. Salt and pepper to taste.
