"Thanks for the great idea. I did adjust the recipe and directions to suit my needs. I mashed the eggplant instead of using the food processor and added potato flakes and Italian flavored breadcrumbs..." See more instead of flour for a better rolling consistency. Then I browned them in garlic and olive oil for a real Italian flavor. They are quite tasty and great with spaghetti squash."
"very messy. the balls did not stay together when fried. Consistency was mushy...." See more"
"I used some of the other users idea's and they turned out great! I used one black beauty eggplant and one white eggplant. I added 2 eggs and used itailan bread crumbs and garlic seasoned potatoe fla..." See morekes. I added some additional itailan seasonings and some magic cheff seasonings. Then I hand rolled them into small meatball size balls and deep fried them. To some of the mix I added some curry, cumin and red pepper flakes. I will definitly use this recipe again. My husband really enjoyed them!"
