Stuffed Eggplant (Aubergine) Rolls

"This is really a tasty dish. If you can't get eggplant, or your garden is full of zucchini that can also be used as a substitute for the eggplant. Both make an excellent side dish or light meal."

Ready In:




  • Wash the eggplants, remove the stems,peel and slice lengthwise.
  • Soak the eggplants in the salt and enough water to cover the eggplant. Keep them immersed with a heavy plate for about 20 minute to 1/2 hours The longer the better. This takes out the bitterness.
  • Preheat the olive oil, but be careful it is not too hot. Olive oil will splatter.
  • Dry the eggplant with paper towels.
  • Dredge the eggplant first into flour, then dip into the egg.
  • Fry until golden brown and drain on paper towels.
  • In the middle of each place a slice of mozzarella, and a spoon of ricotta cheese.
  • Roll up the eggplant and place seam side down in a greased shallow baking dish.
  • Top with marinara sauce.
  • Bake in a 350* oven for 20-30 minute.
  • Garnish with grated cheese and some fnely chopped parsley.

    This was really good. I added chopped prosciutto to the filling. I also cheated a litlle, and didn't make "rolls". I made sandwiches, layering one piece of eggplant, the filling, and then eggplant on top. I put a little marinara in bottom of a casserole dish, then the sandwiches, and more marinara on top. Very good.

    Hi Glitter, I made this for dinner lst night, OMG...these were to die for, I am only sorry that I didn't make more, these were devoured very quick. My family and myself are big fans of eggplant and Mediterranean style dishes, this one is a winner, I made exactly as directed, I soaked them for half an hour in salt, and I covered them with my homemade pasta sauce...oh, these were absolutely delicious!...I am rating them much higher than 5 stars...if anyone out there is an eggplant lover, then this is a must-try recipe. Thanks so much for posting Glitter...Kitten :)


I am an avid cook and recipe collector. I've been cooking since I was 9 yrs. old. I am the first American from my family so I cook many different European dishes, everything from west to east. If I had a month just to do what I would like to do...I would like to cook that month with a famous chef. I also write a bulletin for a Service to Mankind organization. Since I collect recipes anywhere I can see them, I've been asked to share them with my readers. So this site is wonderful not just for me!
