Baked Fried Eggplant

Baked Fried Eggplant


"I love fried eggplant but absolutely hate the mushy texture. I've found a great way to get the fried eggplant taste without the mush. And the sour cream added to the batter gives it a wonderful flavor."

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a cookie sheet.
  2. Wash eggplant and slice into 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices. In a medium bowl, stir together the egg and sour cream until well blended. Toss the eggplant slices with the flour to coat. Dip one slice at a time into the batter then coat with the seasoned bread crumbs. Place coated eggplant onto the prepared cookie sheet and spray the tops with cooking spray.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, then turn the slices over and continue to cook for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, or until both sides are brown and crisp.

I have been looking for this recipe for quite some time and it is wonderful. My husband does not eat healthy at all, but, he had Baked Fried Eggplant and came up asking for more.

This is a great way to cook eggplant. My husband is not much of a veggie person and even he loves this recipe....Great!!

Like another said, didn't taste done. tasted like I was eating bread crumbs with eggplant. My wife "fixed" it by deep-frying it, and then adding a simple tomato sauce (not much) over the taste...

I love fried eggplant, but this recipe is a little on the dry side, I thought. I kinda missed the oil-flavor. Next time I might drizzle some olive oil on top before baking, just to see what ha...
