Hot pepper flakes (optional)
Preheat over to 500'
Slice eggplant however you like it. Sprinkle slices eggplant with salt in a colander and toss to coat evenly with a couple of pinches of salt. Set aside for up to half an hour. This help pull moisture out of the eggplant so it's not mushy.
Mix flour, salt, pepper, garlic, and pepper flakes together in a bowl or on a plate (to taste).
Rinse and dry eggplant.
Coat eggplant with just enough oil to cover eggplant.
Dip eggplant in flour mixture and place single layer on a cookie sheet cover with foil. Oil foil first.
Bake eggplant at 500' for twenty minutes.
Turn once half way though baking if desired.
Cool and enjoy.
