I have been trying forever to find the recipe for "Fried Eggplant" with dip from Olive Garden Restaurant.I looked on Internet for Copy recipes and can't find it.Also I'm looking for the recipe that Grandy's Restaurant has for making their green beans. Can anyone who knows please let me know? Thanks and God Bless. Angelheart from Clyde.

I'm not sure how they do it. I cut into slices, place each slice into beaten egg then dip it into breadcrumbs, next fry it into frying pan of heated oil.
If would like to make it into a Parmesan, have a baking dish with your favorite sauce in the bottom and layer with eggplant slices, sauce then mozzarella cheese. (can also do the same with zucchini, and green tomatoes.
I do it this way also but sometimes in place of breadcrumbs I use finely crushed soda cracker crumbs . Delicious. (09/09/2007)
I'm not familiar with Olive Garden's, but we eat fried eggplant fairly often. Heat deep fryer to 350 degrees F. While it's heating, slice eggplant about 1/4" thick (or very thin if you want really crunchy slips), and shake in a Ziploc bag of cornmeal/flour mix *lightly* seasoned with salt and pepper (some people like a little garlic and onion powder, too, but take it VERY easy on the seasonings). When oil is hot, lay pieces in a single layer in fryer basket and fry for 4 minutes. Serve immediately--the texture is incredible, but won't be the same when it's cooled instead of being fresh out of the fryer.
For eggplant Parmesan, layer fried slices with homemade spaghetti sauce, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese. Bake just long enough to heat through, melt the cheese, and blend the flavors.
*Note: almost any restaurant that serves something like this is going to deep fry it. Pan frying is not the same. (09/10/2007)
Those eggplant are good-tasting that way, but you might want to keep it down to less frequent and find new ways to love eggplant that involve less fat. Whether you are overweight or underweight or just right, all the frying we did in the 1960's was killer on heart health. I still fry eggplant now and then, but like every other year. Makes it more special! (09/10/2007)

Hi, I don't know how Olive Garden does theirs but I'm Italian and this is the way I do mine. Peel your eggplant then slice thin to your liking. Dip each slice in beaten egg and then dip in Italian bread crumbs, place as many slices as you can in a hot fry pan with oil. Just let the slices get to a golden brown and then take them out. Place a layer of eggplant on a paper towel to soak up the oil, paper towel on top again and another layer till you are done with them, at this point you can eat them like that or put sauce on them and make eggplant Parmesan with mozzarella cheese in the oven. They are good fried, but (b)I love the Parmesan the best. Enjoy!(/b) (09/11/2007)
