My guys are NOT big veggie eaters, but I am. So I opted for this last week and my gosh, my DH liked this! I peeled my eggplant b/c I knew they wouldn't eat it at all if I didn't. Lo and behold, my 10 year DS LOVED IT and ASKED FOR MORE!!???? Thanks

I'd never made eggplant parmesan because I didn't want to fry the eggplant, so I was SO excited to find this recipe! I used toast instead of rolls, but found myself ditching the toast after a few bites and just eating the saucy, crunchy, cheesy eggplant. I munched on a couple of the smaller pieces plain, too, as they came out of the oven--they are good plain! I think if you spiced up the crumb mixture a bit more, you could use this recipe to make mock "fried" eggplant sticks as an appetizer. (I am freezing some of the breaded eggplant pieces for later, too. I am thinking it will make a fantastic quicky lunch.) Thank you for posting this recipe! I love it!

This is an excellent variation on Eggplant Parmesan. I had a beautiful eggplant that was begging to be drenched in breadcrumbs and Parmesan, but Hubby wasn't in the mood for my usual pasta dish. I baked my eggplant slices with my usual method instead of broiling and used a ciabatta loaf instead of the Italian rolls. We also ate these as traditional sandwiches, not openfaced. On the side, we served simple tossed salads with a roasted garlic dressing. Yum! It was a great, simple meal for a low-key Sunday evening.

I did a variation of these. I coated my eggplant like this, but then fried instead of baking. Then we just ate them plain, not on a sandwich. My husband grew up with his mom making him fried eggplant and he finally loved "my" version of them. They were delicious!

These eggplant sandwiches are great and it is so nice that you don't have to fry them! My breadcrumbs were the plain kind so I used Italian seasoning - not too much because the cheese had salt and I could always add more at the end. They came out delicously and we ate them up in a jiffy! My "new" favorite way of eating eggplant. Thanks for posting, Diane
