    This is one of my favourite ways to prepare eggplant. Can also substitute as meat in a vegetarian diet.

      I made this as an appetiser for friends, as my friend's DH said he didn't like eggplant - he loved it! I sprayed with olive oil & baked in the oven for 20 mins, with great results. Served with a salsa ranch dip. Loved by all. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing this keeper.

      This was quick and easy to make; and yummy to eat. I did substitute 1/2 cup flour + 1/2 cup of cornmeal for the one full cup of cornmeal. The next time I make it, I will mix the spices in with the dry ingredients, rather than with with milk and egg. I served this with lemon wedges and marinara sauce.

      The eggplants around here are the skinny Lebanese type. The good thing about that is that the salting process is unnecessary. The bad news is that the shape is a little less wieldy using half eggplants instead of rounds. However this method is pretty simple even for someone like me who normally avoids battered fried things and lacks the practice. Four stars for ease.
