The breading & baking recipe is from Ce Ce on recipezaar. She used on green tomatoes. They are to die for. I decided to use on eggplant and use my own tomato mushroom gravy or sauce. I think my eggplant is great with Ce Ce's breading recipe.

I was looking forward to prepare this dish as my DH and I love eggplant and mushrooms. The suggested idea of baking the eggplant is very good tasty and healthy. Unfortunately the gravy was disappointing. I found it tasteless even thought I added a splash of Lee & Perrins Sauce and pepper. My husband liked it. I asked him to rata the recipe in a scale of 1 -5 he said 4 and I liked 3. I will be baking the eggplant again but I will look to dress up these guys with something a little more tasteful or exotic. Thank you again

Thought this eggplant recipe was great. They are even nice plain as "eggplant chips" dipped in tomato sauce. A nice crisp outside texture with non of the high fat! I served it with chicken breast and a small serving of pasta.

What an easy and more healthy way to prepare eggplant instead of frying. The gravy is wonderful! The only substitution I made was to use Splenda Blend instead of sugar. I made these for dinner tonight and everyone loved them!! I'll be making this recipe again.
