Of all the recipes for baked sticks, the ones made from eggplant and sweet potato are definitely my favorites. Eggplant sticks are delicious when served with any dish or menu, be it hamburgers or a formal meal. They can also be a great appetizer or hors d'oeuvres when served with a sauce. And they are perfect to get the kids to eat their vegetables in a delicious, wholesome, easy way. You can easily make these sticks in the fryer but I chose to bake them for a lighter version that's equally delicious. MORE + LESS -
