Show Your Stuff #45 - Eggplant Parmesan
My sweet husband made the best Eggplant Parmesan the other night. It was nice of him to make it for me since I am the only one who really likes eggplant.
So here is the recipe:
1 eggplant, peeled and thinly sliced
Mix these ingredients for the breadcrumb mixture:
1 Cup Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup corn meal
1/2 T pepper
1/2 T garlic powder
Flour and buttermilk for coating the eggplant
your favorite spaghetti sauce
shredded mozzarella cheese
Heat deep fryer oil to 375 degrees
Take a slice of the the eggplant and first dip it in the breadcrumb mixture, then the buttermilk, and then the flour. Fry 3-4 minutes on each side. remove excess grease and place on a baking sheet. Once all the eggplant is fried up and placed on the baking sheet, top each slice with a couple tablespoons of spaghetti sauce and shredded cheese. place in 350 degree oven until the cheese is melted and brown. Serve as is or with noodles.
