Slow Travel Sunday Small Bites: SSB# 18 Egg Plant

This week's ingredient is Eggplant and it was selected by fellow Slow Traveler and Blogger, Eden (Eden's Wanderings and Wonderings). Thank you so much Eden for selecting this week's delicious ingredient, a definite favorite of mine.

I decided to go with a recipe that I found on the Internet called Eggplant: Good, Tasty and Easy, from the All website. I followed this quick and simple recipe and totally loved it! I would definitely make it again.


1 tablespoon olive oil
1/3 large eggplant
1 egg
1 tablespoon water
1 cup dry bread crumbs
1 tomato, chopped
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup Italian-style salad dressing


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet or pizza pan with olive oil.
Slice the eggplant into 8 round slices, each 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Trim the skin, In a small bowl, whip together the egg and water. Place the breadcrumbs in a separate small bowl.

Dip the eggplant slices one at a time into the egg and water mixture, then into the breadcrumbs. One by one, place the coated slices in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet or pizza pan. Top the slices with equal amounts of tomato, Parmesan cheese and Italian-style salad dressing.

Bake in the preheated oven approximately 15 minutes. Change oven setting to broil, and continue cooking 3 to 5 minutes. Check the slices frequently while broiling to avoid burning.

    Thanks Barb & Candi for your kind comments. Enjoy your day today!

  4. I love your eggplant creation. I must copy that. :)

    Thank you for your comments on my blog. It is weird that you can view my post when I can not see it on mine. My blog is still stuck on "Lick", so weird.

  5. I think I left comment on the group blog but I want to say that I want to recreate your dish soon... thank you for sharing this.

  6. Yum! This looks delicious. I've been too busy to make my eggplant dish yet but want to, because I love eggplant. You did good!

    Weird to be back at work after all this fun time off. It is super cold here in NC this week.

    Happy New Year and onward to 2010!

  7. Hi Eden, thanks so much for liking my dish. Eggplants are one of my favorite ingredients. I saw some pretty great looking dishes including your recreation of that dish from your trip and I will enjoy making more tasty dishes with eggplant. I appreciate your comments about my dish. Thanks again for selecting it. If I hadn't of selected Chick Peas I would have probably picked eggplant too. :)

    Annie, thanks so much for liking my dish. I love eggplant, love them as a main dish, as a pizza topping and now as an appetizer. I'm glad that you had such a fun time during your vacation time off. I always find it wierd too returning to work and the routine of work after vacation. I've been reading about how cold it is on the east coast. I hope it warms up a little for all of you. Welcome back and a very Happy New Year to you too! I am also so ready for 2010!
