Aldi’s Season’s Choice Veggie Eggplant Fries are a good way to get your French fry fix without all the guilt.
Among all the varieties of Special Buy French fries Aldi offers in the freezer section, these Veggie Eggplant Fries also show up from time to time. I always pick up a box or two when I see them, and when I bake them at home, I end up sneaking several fries before I call my family to the dinner table. They are that good!
These eggplant fries with Italian-style breading are advertised as “the perfect way to enjoy your veggies.” While they are probably not exactly the healthiest, you do get a small serving of veggies.
The Veggie Eggplant Fries have Aldi’s Premium Quality seal, indicating the veggies go from “field to frozen” to ensure freshness.
You have two ways to prepare the fries. They can be baked in the oven on a baking sheet for 18 to 20 minutes, or they can be put in a deep fryer. My family does not own a deep fryer, so we baked our eggplant fries. They come out of the oven crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The breading is full of flavor and the eggplant has a good, mild flavor.
One of my kids likes to dip her eggplant fries in ketchup, but I enjoy them as they are without any dips.
The box also includes a serving suggestion, recommending that you melt mozzarella and Parmesan cheese on top of the fries and then dip them in marinara sauce. Marinara sauce is a Regular Buy at Aldi stores, so this serving suggestion sounds tempting.
Recommended. Season’s Choice Veggie Eggplant Fries bake up nice and crisp in the oven and are a nice change from traditional potato-based French fries.
