Party With Mr. Egglplant

by Nicci on 09/30/2009

Ooops, I’m on a pasta kick.  Two nights in a row, but in moderation/portion control.

I’ve always loved the deep purple color of the eggplant.

Breaded Eggplant w/ Spaghetti

  • 1 eggplant
  • 3/4 c. fine Italian bread crumbs
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • cilantro
  • Basil and garlic salt to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Cut eggplant in 1/2 inch thick slices; set aside in pan.  Line pan with fresh cilantro. Combine bread crumbs and spices. Dip eggplant in egg, then in bread crumbs. Remove excess and pat slices firmly so they are evenly coated. Layer Parmesan cheese on top of eggplant. Bake at 350 @45 minutes. (If you like  you can add marinara sauce & more cheese).


  • Spaghetti
  • Fire roasted sweet red pepper sauce (I think we all know how to make spaghetti)

This sauce was really sweet too, loved it.

Eggplant is so good! You can make eggplant sandwiches. It’s also in ratatouille (really yummy with polenta!). Congrats on winning the giveaway :)

I bought an eggplant today, and I too need ideas for it :)
Once, I made a delicious meal. I cooked eggplant, actually baked it for 20 min or sth. Then I purred it, and added to it cous cous, garlic, and some spices. I formed balls, and inside every ball, I put a tiny piece of cheese. Then I baked those balls for 15 min in the oven. It was superb!

Loved Glee tonight! I have an awesome eggplant salad…grilled eggplant and vidalia mixed with a red onion and feta and a balsamic dressing. It’s amazing!

Jolene ( September 30, 2009 at 8:39 pm

You could try Moussaka (famous Greek dish).

Emily September 30, 2009 at 8:23 pm

Yum! Love eggplant! I’ve never heard of combining it with cilantro…that sounds good!

Melinda September 30, 2009 at 8:09 pm

Looks great. I meant to make eggplant parm for Ryan before I headed to the States, but I ran out of time. I did have eggplant tonight for dinner though and it was delish!

Jocelyn September 30, 2009 at 7:50 pm

mmm your dinner looks yummmay. I love me some eggplant! And winning a giveaway is exciting! Congratz!

Stephanie September 30, 2009 at 7:44 pm

Cilantro is such an interesting addition to this dish, I love this idea! :)

Meghan over at InnerWorkings just made a deelish sounding eggplant dish tonight — eggplant roll ups with goat cheese/raisins/basil atop a mix of chickpeas, mushrooms and tomatoes — sounded really interesting and yumm! (I still gotta get past my goat cheese phobia before I try however, unless I sub :/)

Kaytee September 30, 2009 at 7:34 pm

Mmmm! Come make me dinner, please. I love eggplant.

Lynne September 30, 2009 at 7:28 pm

I just recently discovered egglant, and plan to make some tomorrow, stuffed with some veggies and cheese. I hope it turns out good. Your eggplant looks really good!
I love Glee – it’s my new favorite show. Tonight’s episode was so cute and I want to download that a couple of songs from iTunes.

Erica September 30, 2009 at 7:13 pm

Your eggplant looks awesome! I love it tossed with just olive oil and spices and done up on the grill. Or cooked plain and topped with marinutta
