      This recipe produced the best fried eggplant I have ever eaten! I didn't follow the directions because I needed to get this together quickly and they still came out fantastic. I didn't sprinkle them with salt and let them sit for 30 minutes and I also probably only soaked them in buttermilk for maybe 10 minutes. They still fried up crispy on the outside and the flavoring was perfect. I normally soak my eggplant in milk, but now I believe the secret to great fried eggplant is the soaking in buttermilk. I loved the addition of the cayenne! I didn't measure how much I used, but it was probably about 1/2 teaspoon. Did I mention how delicious these were??? Totally great recipe, Luby! Thank bunches for sharing it with us. This one is definitely going in my permanent recipe box to be made over and over again. UPDATE: I also used this recipe to fry squash. It worked wonderfully with the squash also!

      Excellent dish. My DW and DD almost ate all the eggplant, and I had to fight for some of my own. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for a great recipe.
