Keto Fried Eggplant Recipe

Author: Angela Roberts


  • 2 eggplants
  • salt
  • 4 eggs may use less
  • 2 to 4 cups pork panko ORDER HERE
  • 1 cup pecorino romano grated
  • olive oil coconut oil or avocado oil for frying


  • Slice eggplant. I like it medium thick, about 1 inch if I'm baking it without stacking it.
  • Sweat the eggplant. Lay out on cloth or paper towels and salt heavily on both sides. Use more cloth or paper towels to absorb the liquid.
  • Beat 2 eggs. You may not need all four so beat more as you need them.
  • Add salt and pepper into eggs.
  • Mix panko with cheese. I like to use ½ cup cheese to 1 cup pork panko, but you can decide for yourself. Keep in mind that pecorino is salty, but I think that adds flavor.
  • Dip into egg, then breadcrumbs and fry eggplant over medium heat in oil of your choice until golden brown on each side. Drain on paper towels.
  • Season with sea salt
