This was soo good. Coating the eggplant in parmesan cheese made for a very unique and tasty dish. I was very suprised that this tasted so different then any eggplant parm I've had before, but it was one of the best. It was also very easy, I will be eating these leftovers right up. I posted a picture of the eggplant after it came out of the oven, one of the ehole dish and one of a single serving. Made for My 3 Chefs, fall 08.
I'd put 10 stars if it were possible. I'll eat and serve this, lo carb or not. This is the best eggplant Parmesan I've ever eaten. I used the grated parmesan cheese in the large plastic containers from the refrigeration section of the store (Sam's but everyone has it). I made sure to pat the cheese/herb/s&p concoction firmly onto the eggplant. Honestly, after trying this part (right out the oven) I would eat this just the way it is! But combined and baked with all the other ingredients it makes a party-worthy entree. My husband wants more!!! And in less than 30 minutes it was put together and placed in the oven. Simple, simple, Simple!
This turned out amazing! The parmasen crusted eggplant is such a good idea and I plan to make make and eat the eggplant that way in the future as a side dish. I followed the recipe with some changes: the changes I made was using 2lbs of ground beef instead of 1lb, using a can of tomato paste and a can of diced tomatoes instead of a jar of pasta sauce (it had lower carbs) and adding some garlic. I have a ton of leftovers and plan to make this again!
I tried this yesterday and went pretty much exactly by the recipe. I did use ground turkey and some Tony's seasoning. This is delicious! I will definitely serve this one again
Just made this tonight. Used grilled chicken breasts, grilled peppers, my own tomato sause and a parmesan/Romano cheese mix. It was fabulous! The eggplant crusted with cheese; wow! Delicious! I will make this again and again. Thank you.
Totally a hit in my household where my hubby doesn't even like eggplant! What a great dish and so easy to do. Did take a little time to prepare but, it was well worth it. I did add a little more cheese and omitted the hamburger and it was still delicious.
