This is the kind of meal that gives the impression of a feast despite a difficult end of the month. There’s a bit of cheddar or parmesan cheese left, a bit of tomato sauce, and you’re tired of pasta? Just buy an eggplant. All the pork aspect of this dish is due to the maniacal way of cooking the eggplant and the fries. Since I once almost went over a fire with a pan of oil, I haven’t made fries for years. I now cook them almost one by one in a pan with a little peanut oil. You don’t have to complicate your life like this, but for me, nothing beats these fries, cooked just right.
