Eggplant Recipes


I have been given some eggplant, 8 of them, but I have never prepared them before. Does anyone have any good recipes to use it in? And how do I prepare eggplant?

Hi... this is gonna sound weird, but peel it and slice it the same size as lasagna noodles and use this instead in your lasagna. Its alot more tender then the pasta is once cooked, but its a different and even my kids like it. No one here knew the difference. I just make my slices a bit thicker then the noodles would be.

I cut the eggplant into 1/4" slices , lightly salt each side , dip each slice into an egg & milk batter , then into some flour , fry the slices in hot oil until each side is golden brown. You can peel the outside of the eggplant off , or you can just fry it like i said with the skin on. (02/08/2006)

If you have never tried eggplant parmesan, you might consider this. I slice the eggplant into 1/2" slices and dip it into beaten eggs, then into breadcrumbs and then spray it with Pam on both sides. Instead of frying the eggplant I put it on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven for about 15 min. I then put it in a casserole layering spaghetti sauce and eggplant and parmesan cheese and put it back in the oven for 30 minutes. Hope you like it. (02/08/2006)

Peel and cut in french fry size. Place flour salt pepper in bag put in eggplant and shake. Fry in oil as you would french fries. Kids don't know the difference. (02/08/2006)

My favorite eggplant dish is called oven fried eggplant. Peel eggplant, slice into 1/4" slices, dip in beaten egg. Mix breadcrumbs & parmesan in a bag & shake eggplant slices until well coated in the bag. Shake off excess crumbs & place slices on a well greased cookie sheet & bake at 400 degrees until brown on underside then turn over to brown. Watch carefully. Do not burn. It is absolutely delicious.

I was told by an elderly friend of mine that when you buy an eggplant always buy the male because it will have less seeds. You can tell this by looking at the end of the eggplant (not the stem end) and if it is indented it is female, if it is flat it is a male. I don't know how much truth there is to that but that's one of the things I look for when I buy eggplant. Does anyone know if there is any truth to that?

I have not made this yet -- I plan to make it this week. It sounds very good.

Eggplant parmesan is very tasty. Just type in google EGGPLANT PARMESAN & you'll find many recipes. A dip can also be made by peeled eggplant cut into cubes placed in processor with small onion, some garlic cloves (to your taste) salt & pepper & little oil until desired thickness so you can use as a veggie dip.
