Sweet Eggplant Fritters
Blue Ribbon Recipe
What a surprising flavor in these sweet little fritters! Honestly, if we didn't prepare the recipe we wouldn't realize they were made with eggplant. Even proclaimed eggplant haters will love these little nuggets of yumminess. They have a crisp outside with a soft, sweet, and chewy inside. They're good without powdered sugar... but even better with it.
Note: We added the milk a tablespoon at a time and ended up using 2 tablespoons. You may need more/less depending on your eggplant. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Sweet Eggplant Fritters
- Note: I have made these on a griddle sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray. I did have to thin the batter a little more than usual, but it worked well enough. It is a great way to take out some of the calories and cholesterol if you are concerned about that.
