Recipe by Boca Pat

I was looking for something to do with an eggplant that looked like it only had alittle time left and I came across this recipe. I served it as a side dish, but it would work well as an appetizer also.

Awesome! Very easy to make. I made two changes: one change in that I was out of dried basil, so I used 1 Tbs pesto from the jar instead of the basil and oregano. I think it gave these a really good flavor. The second change was that I sprayed my pan with olive oil cooking spray before each batch instead of frying them in the oil. Thanks for a great dinner.
