Tasty! I used home-grown Japanese eggplants, split them in half, drizzled some olive oil over them and baked them in the oven for 20 minutes at 350°. That gave them a nice roasted flavour. I used a fancy Mexican cheese blend instead of just cheddar and added Italian seasonings and cumin to the cheese mix. I then baked the patties for 20 minutes total, flipping them after 10 minutes. Thanks!

I also added an additional 1/2 cup of bread crumbs and I used about 3/4 cup of cheese rather than the full cup. Then I BAKED them for about 20-25 min. at 350 and flipped them once halfway through. Since they started to look more and more like hamburgers, I decided to go with it...I put one of these on a bun with ketchup, lettuce, mayo, tomato, etc. and it was awesome! It tasted just like a regular burger. Thanks for the recipe.

My husband and I both loved them! I halved the recipe since I only had one eggplant. I did not want to fry them, so I "pan fried" them in the oven--I put the oil on a pan and into the oven. When hot and sizzling I added the croquettes, turning half way through cooking. It was a great alternative cooking method. I think next time I'll use a little less oil. I'll be making them again soon!
