Great eggplant! I just started eating eggplant so was not sure if I should peel it or not. I left the skin on (next time I will peel it off). I added a little salt and a light sprinkle of parmesan cheese when they were done cooking. I ate this with a little peppercorn ranch dressing. Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #58.
I had some buttermilk to use up so I used that. I added Lawry's Seasoning Salt and garlic powder to the herb mixture. Contrary to my friends, I so not peel the eggplant. Turned out yummy.
My husband and I loved this eggplant. I had one small, perfect eggplant and needed a fast recipe. I quickly sliced and salted the eggplant and mixed just one egg and a bit of milk, then dumped the sliced eggplant in and smushed them around. I used seasoned bread crumbs which contained the requisite spices and quickly breaded them and got them in the oven in a pan lined with non-stick foil. They were done in 30 minutes, nice and crispy...my husband called them 'eggplant chips'. They were very very good. Thanks Sharon, we'll be doing this eggplant recipe again, often.
This came out great! I was trying to find a way to get "fried eggplant" with less fat. I did add some grated parmesan to the breading, and used about 2 Tbsp of olive oil to oil my tray. Also, I'm the eggplant eater at our house, so I applied the same approach to some zucchini sliced lengthwise for the heathen; and it worked like a champ on those too.
We really enjoyed this eggplant recipe. I think the trick is to not coat the slices with too much of the breadcrumbs or wheat germ. I baked my batch for right at 30 minutes, and it was just perfect. We paired this with sandwiches, and the eggplant was really the prefect complement. It's great to have a recipe for a crispy eggplant that isn't fried - thanks, Sharon123!
Your recipe was fine, followed it exactly and eggplant was good. Baking it certainly cut down on all the oil used for frying and lowered the calories as I usually fry the eggplant first then smother in spagetti sauce and cheese then bake. Although good, it was a little too dry and crisp for my taste. I think my problem is the breadcrumbs I used, I have to either find another brand or make my own. Then will make it again.
We really like the fact that this is baked instead of fried. It tastes great (even the kids love it) and doesnt have all the oil!
I did like the crispiness of the eggplant and enjoyed this for my lunch. The only thing I'd change is to omit the dill. I thought the dill really overpowered the total flavor. While I love dill, I just didn't think it worked with the eggplant here. I will try this again. Thanks for posting!
A tasty way to use your eggplant! I made this exactly as posted, using breadcrumbs. I did find them to be a little dry and would suggest making sure there is enough oil on the baking sheet. Thanks for sharing.
Slighty bland but good texture. I used the wheat-germ, this could have given the slightly off taste. Good texture though.
