    It looks as if the egg plant was peeled. Did I miss a step?

    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.

    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.
