I bought an eggplant for my garden this year despite never having cooked eggplant before, and this recipe was my first attempt at cooking with eggplant. I omitted the tomato since my husband doesn't like them, but might put them on half of them for myself next time. My husband and I loved this recipe, and we will definitely use it again, either on it's own, or as a base to add a sauce to or layer with.

This was really good. I had lots of tomatoes and eggplant from the garden, so this is just what I needed to use some up. I skipped the flour step, just dipped in the egg mixture and then breadcrumbs. I don't think they needed to be covered in foil, and I cooked them longer to get them crispier. Great flavor combination, definitely a keeper!

These were wonderful! The only thing I did different was to peel the eggplant (personal preferance). Will definitely be making these again!
