    Missy Wombat's Note:

    My toddler loves to eat eggplant this way. To increase the variety of foods she was eating and because I had no breadcrumbs I substituted ground almonds and couscous with good effect. I have also substituted the parsley with finely chopped up vegetables. This is a good base recipe to play around with.

      Delicious! My 13-month-old enjoys them too. I substitued about half of the bread crumbs with wheat germ which worked well, and instead of parsley I used cooked broccoli. I'm thrilled that my toddler liked it so much. :)

      Great base. Form and bake well. Bland....however I realize you made them for young children. In future I will spice them up or serve with a great dipping sauce for adults. I used Panko bread crumbs and just about doubled the quantity in the recipe. I used cheddar cheese and realize changing the type of cheese could make a great difference.

      This needs something, a little bland. It doesn't specify the cheese, we use parmesan. It definitely needs sauce for dipping!!!
