    I love eggplant and made up pa batch of fried eggplant last night. Sliced it thin with skins on. Egged it up and then dredged it in seasoned bread crumbs and then fried it in oil. Serve it with macaroni with meat sauce or do a parmagiana with it and it's yummy. What I want is some new eggplant recipes. Cold appetizers, new ways to prepare or bake or fry, rolled....anyone have any good recipes they'd like to share? :)

    I haven't tried this one yet but I thought it sounded good. It would probably be even better with 2% milk and regular Motz cheese. Althought the calories would go through the roof if you did that.

    Another good one thanks BDD :) Can't wait to try that one too. I like the first because it seems a lot less fattening then the fried eggplant. And your recipe sounds yummy too. I don't do eggplant mixed with other things normally so this will be fun, thanks :)
