This recipe was pretty good. However, I suggest to not use plain bread crumbs. If you do, add some spices of your own. I made this last night with plain bread crumbs. After I sampled one I realized how bland it tasted. So I sprinkled the eggplants with Garlic Salt, Pepper, and Lawry's Seasoning Salt. That definatley gave it the extra punch I needed after using plain bread crumbs.


I love fried eggplant, but I haven't made it in a couple of years because I was taught to deep-fry the eggplant slices, and I try to avoid deep-frying our food. But I was really craving it tonight and found this very easy recipe here. After reading the reviews, I decided to try frying the eggplant in fat-free olive oil cooking spray. Delicious and guilt-free! I used seasoned bread crumbs and parmesan cheese, with salt and pepper added for flavor. Even my picky kids loved it. I'm only sad that my husband - who swears that he's not picky - wouldn't even touch it, because he says he hates eggplant. I'm sure he'd change his mind if he gave this recipe a try!


Cooked for my husband and he absolutely loved it. I even double dipped into the egg again and then dipped into grated parmesan cheese for an additional flavor. This recipe was extremely easy and I will definitely do this one again.
