Mini Eggplant Fritters

For another appetizer for our family Christmas Eve dinner, my mom made some mini eggplant fritters, experimenting with our brand new box of Gluten-Free Bisquick for the first time. When I was little my dad used to make us Bisquick pancakes on Sunday mornings, so I had high hopes for this boxed gluten-free stuff. I’d also had trouble with fritters in the past, but the Bisquick worked great (and so did the added oil), and these tasty little fritters were mouth-watering. A great way to eat a vegetable.


1 eggplant, peeled and chopped

1 teaspoon vinegar

1 tablespoon flax seed mixed with three tablespoons hot water (an egg replacer)

5 tablespoons Gluten-Free Bisquick

Olive oil


1. Chop the eggplant into small pieces.

2. Add the vinegar to a pot of water. Add the eggplant and boil until soft.

3. Drain the eggplant in the sink. Mash it in a bowl.

4. Add the the flax seed and water mixture and the Gluten-Free Bisquick. Mix into a batter.

5. Add olive oil to a frying pan, enough to over the bottom, about 1/8 an inch. Heat the pan. (This is like semi-deep frying.)

6. Add the batter to the frying pan one squished teaspoon at a time to make the mini-fritters. Fry the fritters until brown on both sides.
