    OMGoodness! I have never had eggplant before in my life, and randomly purchased one at the grocery store to try it. I picked this recipe because I had basically all the ingredients at home, and I am super happy with it! I loved eggplant! I am so glad that this recipe was worth the virgin eggplant experience! Must have again!

    Mmm delicious! I used Quinoa rather than breadcrumbs, oil rather than butter and excluded parmesan. We've enjoyed a lot. Thanks.

    Excellent! Of course I used substitutes however. I nixed the salt, used olive oil and smart balance butter instead of the regular butter and left out the breadcrumbs on top. Also *gasp!* I added a bit of ground sirloin. I would definitely make again maybe with some marinara sauce or with a zucchini. Thanks for this recipe!
