Best eggplant recipe ever

Well, one of...

Got it from Gourmet cookbook. It's basically breaded and pan fried eggplant wedges/sticks. Never done this before. Coat the eggplant in flour then dip in egg (I used beaters as that's what I had; recipe called for evaporated milk), then in fresh toasted breadcrumbs. Pan fry in olive oil until browned and crispy, then I sprinkled sea salt over. Then dip in powdered sugar. Sooo goood. The eggplant becomes almost cheese-like, very creamy, and the sweet with it is very interesting.
I have a ton of eggplant in my garden and I'm dreaming of making this again. Too bad it's so bad for you.
