eggplant recipe creation

This is my own creation using eggplant:

Ingredients:

1 eggplant
1/4 lb. hard salami, sliced thin
a bag of shredded mozzarella
parmesan cheese
sliced fresh tomatoes
seasoned dry bread crumbs
eggwash for dipping sliced eggplant

peel and slice the eggplant, then dip each slice into eggwash and then breadcrumbs. Fry in canolla oil until brown, drain on paper towels, then transfer one later of eggplant to a glass baking dish. Top each slice with salami, tomato, parmesan cheese, mozzarella. Continue with another layer til you used up your eggplant, ending with eggplant on top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. I love this dish, made it today.

This looks really good, amber!

lol mudbug - I have resorted to buying the cherry tomatoes when a recipe calls for 1 chopped tomato - just guessing as to how many and chopping away - they have a MUCH better flavor!!! Some Romas are good too along with the bunches of vine tomatoes that you can buy if you have to.

lol, well they are fresh, but not as tasty as the summer tomatoes of course. I bought some roma tomatoes, but you can use vine ripened ones too.

right now there is a glut of "grape" tomatoes available in my local store. Smaller than the cherry ones, and not too bad. I may be kind of a tomato snob - just don't like them this time of year much.

Yea we have the grape tomatoes too, which are pretty tasty. It's hard to find a great tasting tomato right now, but I love tomatoes. You could always slice up the grape or cherry tomatoes for this dish.

I love this dish, made it today.


amber, I tried your recipe today and they said it tasted like pizza. They all liked it. None left. However, son #1 going out and worried about the 'gas'. I told him eggplant is something everyone should eat but he wonders if I know what I am talking about. I sure don't want to cause him to have people avoiding him. We all have 'it' at one time or another. Anyway it tasted good and I will make it again after I check if anyone going out in mixed company.
