    2                    eggplants
   10      cloves        garlic
      1/2  cup           all-purpose flour
      1/2  cup           buttermilk baking mix
    1      teaspoon      oregano
      1/2  teaspoon      black pepper
    1                    large egg
                         olive oil
                         salad oil
      1. Cut eggplant into 1/2-inch slices. Place in single layer on paper
 towels. Sprinkle with salt and set aside for 30 minutes.
      2. Using garlic press, press 6 garlic cloves and place into mixing bowl.
 Add flour, biscuit mix, oregano, pepper, slightly beaten egg and enough water
 to make batter the consistency of pancake batter.
      3. Pour half olive oil and half salad oil to a depth of 1/4 inch in a
 skillet over medium heat. Crush four garlic cloves with flat edge of knife;
 add to oil and saute until lightly browned. Press the cloves against sides of
 pan just before removing to release more of the garlic flavor.
      4. Coat each eggplant slice with batter; fry, being careful not to brown
 too fast. (Do not burn.) Serve immediately.

 NOTES : If you like garlic, you will like this dish. Lots of garlic and
 herbed batter make this eggplant recipe different and delicious.
