August 16, 2010


If you’ve never tried eggplant before, grab a parent and try this recipe. You are gonna love it! But get ready, it’s a little bit of work. But oh, it’s so worth it.

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • 1 eggplant
  • 1 can of plain tomato sauce
  • 4 eggs
  • Olive oil
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • Salt & pepper

Here’s What You’ll Do

  • Fill a large pan with cold water, big enough to hold the eggplant
  • Peel the eggplant and slice in thin, round circles
  • Place the sliced eggplant in the cold water and soak for 20 minutes
  • Remove and allow to dry for 10 minutes

While waiting for the eggplant to soak:

  • Drizzle 2 T of olive oil in a sauce pan
  • Put 3 sliced garlic cloves in the oil
  • When garlic cloves turn a nice, golden brown, add 1 can of tomato sauce and 1 cup of water
  • Allow sauce to bubble and keep nearby
  • Spoon 1 cup of the sauce into a pasta dish or serving dish and set aside
  • In a separate bowl, crack and whip the 4 eggs to dip the eggplant
  • Drizzed 2 T of olive oil in a large skillet, heat and brown the remaining 3 cloves of sliced garlic

Now it’s time to put it all together:

  • Begin dipping a slice of eggplant at a time in the egg and then transfer each to the bubbly, hot oil in the skillet, until the skillet is full of eggplant
  • When nicely browned, flip and brown the other side
  • Be sure to add more olive oil if needed
  • When both sides are nicely brown, transfer to the serving dish and layer eggplant slices and sauce until all eggplant is prepared
  • Serve with freshly grated pecorino romano cheese, hard crust Italian bread and fresh pepper

Take iTwixie’s eggplant challenge and taste this terrific dish! Isn’t it delicious!?!
