Now I'm really not one for calling things what they aren't.
I don't believe that an egg and a banana make up a pancake.
And I don't believe that spaghetti squash can be called pasta. (While I do love spaghetti squash let's be honest...its not pasta).
Which brings me to my point - just because I am calling these eggplant chips, please understand there is nothing like Classic Lays served with a crustless sandwich. Some things are just irreplaceable.
However, these eggplant chips DID exceed my expectations and when made crispy enough, they deliver the crunch we're all looking for!

salt & pepper to taste
Optional : your favorite marinara sauce
1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees

5.) Slice eggplant in 1" circular slices
