Healthy "Fried" Egglant

Ingredients

For 1 Batch(es)

Cream

  • 1 eggplant
  • mayonaisse
  • seasoned Italian bread crumbs
  • 1 slice provolone or mozzarella cheese (optional)

Healthy "Fried" Egglant Directions

  1. Cut an Italian variety eggplant into ¼-inch medallions.
  2. Liberally spread mayonnaise on both sides of each medallion.
  3. Press medallions on both sides with seasoned Italian bread crumbs.
  4. Place on cookie sheet. Put under broiler for about 5 minutes.
  5. Flip medallions and return to broiler for another 5 minutes. Times are approximate. When bread crumbs turn brown and mayonnaise begins to slightly bubble, it is time to flip or remove completely from broiler.
  6. If desired, you can add a slice of provolone or mozzarella cheese during the last 30 to 45 seconds of cooking.
  7. You can eat this as a side dish or use for eggplant Parmigiana. A similar process with cornmeal or flour will work great for “fried” green tomatoes.
