"A Good Thing," thanks for posting was looking for another eggplant recipe but not heavy using oil or in a casserole. I am watching my salt so did not add any, used the "dry" Parmesan cheese and the mayonnaise with olive oil. I think some of my eggplant pieces were too big so had to crush a few crackers (no salt on top) to finish the few I had. Did everything else and when all baked I returned all the pieces back to oven to crisp up.
Mine didn't get as crispy as I would have liked, but I may have skimped too much on the mayo (my eggplant was really small, so I wasn't sure about amounts). The flavor was nice, though.
I did this with light mayo, but wisked it with some water, as I thought it was too think otherwise. Wait a few minutes and the mayo will thicken up. It is a fast, easy and low calorie way to oven "fry" anything!
Very yummy! We made it exactly as described but did add a little mozzarella on top after flipping half way through the baking time. It turned out great!
We made this exactly as stated. I loved the topping combination. It was nice to sneak a baked eggplant slice onto my husband's plate. It would be great on many other veggies too. I am going to try it on some nice thick slices of tomato soon. :) Thanks Peggy. Made for PAC Spring 2009.
Hi Good Thing! This was a nice easy tasty recipe. I have been looking for an eggplant recipe that highlights this wonderful veggie rather than being part of a big stew. Of course I didn't have all the ingredients. I used 1/2 yogurt and half Smart Balance mayo. followed the rest, using seasoned bread crumbs as well as seasoning. Made the sauce , then didn't get to use it that night. Used it the next. Instead of a heavy dip in bread crumbs, I just sprinkled some on each side of the eggplant after brushing on a thin layer of sauce on each side. For baking, I sprayed a cooking rack and placed them on the rack. Baked at 375 F for about 15 min. they were delicious, and perhaps a little more reduced fat. It seems to me that this could lend itself to just about any cuisine simply by varying the seasonings. Indian, Thai, Greek African or other Mediterranean. Very nice. Oh, I eat this all by myself. DH doesn't like eggplant. Thanks Judy in WA
This was perfect. I did it with low fat mayonnaise and PAM instead of oiling the dish. I think the onion flakes added a great flavor as well.
Recipie seemed heart healthy. I used part Italian dressing with the mayonnaise as I did not have Italian seasoning. It was very tasty.
Great egglant recipe. I went searching for something yummy to make with the first fruit from my first "egg plant". This was perfect. Easy, quick, and even our daughter ate it all up. I hope I get more eggplants to grow now - I guess I could always buy some!
