I am all about meatless meals, I am a veggie loving fruit lady, afterall. The King Carnivore, however, doesn’t seem to think a meal is a meal without meat. We have go rounds about this. The good thing is that he is game to try something at least once. This, he said he would like more than once. No meat required. Yum yum.
An eggplant. Breadcrumbs. Milk or eggs for dipping. tomato, basil, olive oil, cheese and salt to taste.
Cut your eggplant into slices and soak in salt water for about 15 minutes. Then pat dry to remove excess moisture.
Dip in milk or egg, and then coat with bread crumbs. Drizzle with olive oil and bake 8 minutes. Flip them and bake another 8 minutes. If you want them to be a little more crispy skip the baking and fry in butter.
Add a slice of tomato, a sprig of basil, and fresh mozzarella or any cheese for that matter.
Then bake until the cheese melts.
Oh my, they were yummy. You can add balsamic to the top if you want, won’t hurt, and can only help.
