Hannah Boone and JR Bruno make Fried Eggplant with Peach Salsa

Eggplant and Peaches have gone together since the dawn of emojis ☺️, mostly thanks to the body parts they resemble. We’ve all sent the flirty text or two using these emojis. The only problem is they have never gone together in a dish…until now. The very funny, Pepperoni Zone member, comedian Hannah Boone teamed up with our Cooking with Comedians by Newdie Mag host JR Bruno to make fried eggplant topped with a peach salsa.

Fried eggplant and peach salsa recipe:

Fried eggplant:

1 eggplant, sliced, 1/2 rounds, leaving skin on

2 eggs

2 cups Italian breadcrumbs

1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese

1⁄4 cup dried parsley

1 tablespoon garlic powder

Salt and pepper, to taste

2 cups vegetable oil

1) Spread eggplant slices on paper towels and sprinkle generously with salt. Let sit for one hour so that eggplant “sweats out” any bitterness. Pat dry. Prepare salsa while eggplant sweats out.

2) In a small bowl, beat the eggs. In a separate bowl, mix breadcrumbs, parmesan, parsley, and garlic. Dredge each slice of eggplant in egg mixture coating it thoroughly, then in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing to help them stick. Let coated eggplant sit for 10 minutes.

3) Heat oil in skillet to 375 degrees. Fry the eggplant slices for 1 minute on each side, or until golden brown. Transfer to paper towel-lined baking sheet. Top with peach salsa and serve.

Peach salsa:

3 large peaches, seeded, peeled and diced

2 small tomatoes, diced

1 medium jalapeno, seeded and diced

1 cup diced red onion

1/2 cup loosely packed chopped fresh cilantro

Juice from 1 lime

Salt and pepper, to taste

1) In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and stir until mixed well. Chill while completing fried eggplant

Finish frying eggplant and allow it to cool then top with peach salsa. Enjoy!!!
