Baked Cheese Crusted Eggplant

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by mooskie

WE grew a small white Mohican eggplant this year. They are about 6 inches long. This is an easy, healthy, and very tasty way to prepare them. Panko is a form of breadcrumb. The bottom of the eggplant comes out crispy and dark brown the top is lightly toasted. Try it with standard eggplant let me know how it was.

This is a delightful way to make (and eat) eggplant. My husband said he liked this better than any other, and would happily eat only this recipe. I did use a standard, medium sized eggplant, and mixed the boxed parmesan with grated fresh peccorino romano, and it was so good we got another eggplant and made it again the next week. Thanks, Mooskie, for a real treat! MSME
