Eggplant is battered and breaded with instant mashed potato flakes then browned in the oven until tender. Since I tried this method, we never serve eggplant any other way.

Tried this recipe and LOVED IT!!! I always have to make "my own variation" of a recipe--so-- I reduced the butter to 2 tbs and also sprayed the entire baking sheet with butter flavored Pam, added Italian seasoned bread crumbs to the "taters" and sprayed butter flavored Pam on the tops before baking. Then, I cooked it for 15 minutes each side---it was wonderful!! Crispy too!

I will never bread eggplant any other way! I KNEW potato flakes were good for something aside from mashed potatoes!! I added some parmesan, basil and no-salt seasoning to the mix and ommitted the salt, but next time I WILL add a little salt b/c I feel it was needed... Also, make sure you use the full amount of butter or coat the slices with it before baking, b/c I cut the amount and some of my slices would not brown on both sides after I flipped them. You could also spray these with nonfat Pam or an olive oil spray for a healthier version... In any case, these are delicious and I will use potato flake breading for EVERYTHING! Can't wait to try it on fish!!!

To be honest I am not to crazy about eggplant, but I did try this recipe and change the regular instant potatoes to Idahoan Loaded Baked (Blended with butter, sour cream, cheese, bacon, onion & chives) and used 1 tsp of cayenne pepper. Served them with some homemade salsa...and my friends could not keep from raving about the new appetizers I served.
