Low Carb Eggplant French Fries. I can’t think of anyone I have ever known who doesn’t love them and they are certainly just as good if not better, than regular ole fries so so easy to make, and they go with about anything. Do not mistake these for some baked-in-the-oven version, these are the real deal fried in lard but most often in duck fat.
Is that ketchup you ask? Yes it is, a Sugar-Free Ketchup. I do use it in recipes of all stripes but with fries I use it just naked.

- I eat these dipped in sugar-free ketchup***.
- If you end up needing a little more Parmesan cheese no big deal. It will only add a few more calories and really, who cares if you eat a bit more cheese-I certainly don't.
